      ..Did you ever install your new doubler?

      ..I see you ordered it about 6 weeks ago but those of us looking for a doubler haven't heard your review..:popcorn:

      I haven't received it yet. I was supposed to have it around June 1st but Jake had some machine issues that have delayed production. It is suppose to be done next weekend. He has been real good with communication so far. I will definitely do a full review with pictures as soon as I receive it.... I am just glad I wasn't in a hurry for this thing!

      Paid him through paypal.

      He texted me on 8/1/12 and said he got the shafts in and my doubler should be shipped by the middle of next week. He also said he is getting setup to do his own shafts.

      He told me on 8/8/12 he is pushing to get it done that week.

      I'll probably text him Monday to see what the latest set back is.

      I have seen two doublers, d.d.machine, ready to run, on therangerstation.com for sale in the classified for about the same money I sent to Behemoth DT. I should have waited for them or just bought a d.d.machine kit. I could kick myself but it won't change anything.

      I am just hoping to receive a quality doubler that Jacob @ Behemoth speaks of this year :thumbsup:

      Glad you finally got it. The shifting arm pics are a little fuzzy. It's looks like for some reason the shaft steps or grinds down right before the 90 degree turn. In your opinion what's your take on it.

      I didn't realize those pictures were fuzzy until after I got it back together. :rolleyes:

      The shaft looks to be ground down to clear the housing. I don't see the shift arm ever being an issue, but everything else is real good looking quality and then you got that! If anything it could have been welded the whole way around it.

      That is the only real complaint I have about it, that I saw.

      Yeah man!

      Update: I got to go to rausch creek for the first time with my bud from work. He has a toyota on 36" swampers. His buddy tagged along in a ford ranger on 31" tires, so we stayed on all the easy trails. It was a good time and we are definitely going up next year. I got to play on the competition course which will be more fun with the doubler. I will upload pictures sometime.

      I need to find sometime to install the doubler but I am afraid as soon as I start tearing into it, it will snow and it won't be drivable! That is what happened with the sas and it was disappointing.

      You'll have to let me know when you set a date to go to rausch.

      I found a manual 1354 in the junk yard a week ago. I just got done installing it and removing all the wiring for the auto shift case. I want to install my doubler but I am not ready to have my explorer down that long, plus I am still brainstorming ideas.

      [​IMG]

      Mocked the doubler up on the table

      Now the plan is to strip the electric shift transfer case of all the internals so I can use that as a mock up when I do install my doubler.

      Auto Fab Motor Mounts

      I purchased some autofab motor mounts. I am building my own for the transmission identical to the autofab trans mount. I can't wait to get them in and get rid of the drivetrain slop.

      I got the auto fab motor mounts installed... Wow what a difference they make. It is a joy to drive again and doesn't sound like it is going to fall apart!

      Never had the time to install the doubler yet. It is a strong box from behemoth drivetrain. I saw splodo49 posted up that his strong box broke,
      When I read that I got a hold of Jake and he told me to send it back and he would install a shift fork that has two contacts instead of the single one it has now. My doubler is boxed up and ready to go back to kentucky :mad:!


      The motor mounts were $240 + shipping. They are pricey but money well spent imo. Here is the link to them.
