    Looking for help here,

    Am thinking about swapping out my 208 case for a 241 case. The 241 case is out of an 89 truck, so it has the mechanical speedo gear, which will match my 87. Is this a true direct bolt in swap? I mean, no driveshaft length changes, no adapter differences, shift linkage differences, etc?? Basically unbolt the 208, bolt in the 241 and plug the speedo cable in and go?

    Thanks for any help - and if it isn't a direct swap, what needs to be done to accomplish it?

    241's are supposed to be a little stronger than 208's. Also you can get commercially available slip yoke eliminator kits. Of t-cases that are stronger than 208's (and common) the 241's have a 2.72 (I think) low range, which is a quite a bit more than the 2:1 of the 203 or 205, but it is still aluminum (not necessarily a bad thing...lightweight).
