    is there a kit to turn a 208 into a fixed yoke set up?
    i had a prob with my slip yoke set up when i jumped it last weekend....the yoke botomed out and poped the cap off the yoke...so now oil is pouring out of the transfer case when i stop...i am wanting to get a fixed yoke kit and get a 2 peice drive shaft then it would take care of this prob for good...but where do i get the kit at...if they even make them

    You could either buy a Ford 208 with a fixed yoke and swap the tailshaft and housing over to yours, or contact Jesse at High Angle Driveline.. I think he is working on a kit to do just that....

    Here is his website: <A target="_blank" HREF=http://highangledriveline.com/>http://highangledriveline.com/</A>

    This has been discussed a lot, but has anyone actually done it that can report on trouble spots?

    <font color=green>If a K-5 is "Built not Bought", why does this stuff cost me so much money? [​IMG] </font color=green>
