let me know what you find for any type of doubler. That is a future mod that I plan on getting.

most are not running an atlas, only because the doubler setup is a cheaper route to go. those that are running something like that have them behind other transmissions than a stock ranger transmission.

most doubler setups for rangers are grouping a BW 1354 to a BW 1350 t-case, there is a write up in the TRS Tech Library...

ATLAS transfer cases are a hell of a-lot better than doubled up transfer cases

the ATLAS is a completly manufactured transfer case
moulded from the dana 300 transfer case,, with various mounting angles

it can be ordered either passenger or driver side output shafts
also with solid rod or cable operated shifter rails

The atlas is also a gear driven case unlike the chain style of the 1354.

I have chosen the np205 to go in after the v8 swap. It will require some modding to the trans, vss, and the floor, and I hope it fits between the the frame rails.

yes it is gear driven

it also depends what transmission you are going to use

that 205 will be a major drag on any small block transmission

you are going to have to fabricate 1 hell of a robust transfer case crossmember

The 205 is one heavy sob. Mine does have a frame mount with it. I divorced off a 78 f250 with a 400m/c6. So it will need to consideration once its under my truck.

Although this will not happen soon. v8 swap first than the SAS and tcase upgrade. My d44/60 needs rebuilds and brake work. Before I can even think about fab work.

how much would an Atlas for a ranger cost? you can build the 1350+1354 for 150-250 bucks

I think they are around 3000 from what I remember. I only know one guy that runs one on a RBV and that is a wheeling guide at BVORR that runs it in his explorer. I think it bolts right up from what I remember

no joke, but I know he loved it and hadn't ever let him down. I think he went through two stock cases before he got it
