    well i pretty much got all the major parts i need for the build, im just stuck on what trans case to use.

    Not gonna be doing any rock crawling, just trails and mud
    gonna go with the 5.13 gears, and 40 ground hawgs.

    Motor is a 454 gonna build it to about 400 hp, tranny is a 2wd 400- but i removed the tail housing, and it has 4.5" sticking out, now a 205 case should bolt up to it right. The tranny has the circle bolt pattern.

    I have a 208 case from a 700r tranny its a 27 spline, so if i used that i would have to get a diffrent input and find an adapter.

    What about the 241 case? it is stronger than the 208 right?

    Or should i just keep looking for a 205, 32 spline input, with the circle bolt pattern?

    Thanks
    brad

    im goin with a 241sye in my truck because its easier than gettin a 205 to work with a 700r4. otherwise id go 205. the 241 has a good low range tho

    The only t-case that works with that length output is an 80-84 NP205 (w/adapter).

    A 208 or 241 will need a shorter output shaft (2.5" iirc).
