I run a flipped 300 with 4:1 and have upgraded the output. No complaints yet, but by the time you do all of that you can be close to the cost of an Atlas. I did mine in parts so it was easier for me to afford. If I had to do it all over again, I would choose an Atlas....

So what the coat of just the t-case. I was thinkin, buy the t case then the adapter. And install. What's those t cases run? Plus a 4:1 gear set isn't cheap but i dont NEED that.

if you're gonna do that , you could just either A: buy a 4:1 kit for your 231. B: find a 241OR off a rubi and swap it, or C: buy a 300, flip it, buy 4:1 , and make shifters and stuff, or D: buy an atlas. id wheel for a while and look for a 241OR personally. the 300flip/231 doubler adds up fast, or even just a flipped dana 300. i researched this for days a while ago. i decided to keep the 231 until i can afford an atlas.

The thing is my stock t case keeps falling Outa 4L. I have to hold it. I adjust and checked the linkage and its all tits. So I'm assuming its that gear.

shift fork could be crappy. those little nylon sleeves on the shift forks could be done? or worn out internal components?

i had a flipped 300 & 231 doubler in my heep.
i snapped the output shaft the 3rd time out on the trail.
i wouldn't put any money into upgrading a 300, but if you can get one complete they work pretty good until you go with big tires (i had 39.5 iroks & 5.38's) or heavy skinny pedal use. just get an atlas & save a ton of money & headaches over the long haul.
