    im building a 88 blazer from frame up the injected 388 and new rapter 700r4 is mounted in frame now. i was going to use the 208 trans case but will it hold up? i have 2 205 cases both from a standard tranny . i was going to by a slip yoke adapter and cv drive shaft for the 208 but maybe better to do 205 swap? what do you guys think? thanks

    Depends on the type of wheelin your doing. If you want the 208, I would go with the 241 since it has a lower ratio and you get a SYE kit for it. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Sounds like what I do! /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/histerical.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    The 205 is the ultimate in strength, but the 208 has a much lower low range. What is more important to ya?

    If you don't mind the land anchor that is the NP208 then go with the NP208. Lower low range, lighter, and probably has fewer miles on it. If you've got the time and money to spare, clock the NP208 up.

    Why not do a Doubler if you're doing a badass build up.
