    Anybody know about what year that combination started and ended? Also who builds the best 700? Hear a lot of different builders but just curious what is considered to be the best one.

    The 241, Does it hang as low as the 208?

    Thanks.

    Bowtie from every thing i have heard/read these are the best, if you pull a tranny t-case combo out of a truck the later the better,they seemed to have all the bug worked out by the later years, but 89 was the last year of a mech. spedo, they went to VSS after that

    I'm pretty sure most '89-'91 K5s and Subs (the 1/2 ton version) had this combo. As already stated, '89 had mechanical speedo and '90-'91 had VSS.

    I've seen one 1988 Suburban and one 1988 K5 with a NP241. I think most got NP208s.

    The 88-89 ones had a mechanical speedometer and the 90-91s had a vehicle speed sensor.

    They hang down just as far as a NP208 and in my opinion are worse since the crossmember hangs down further than a "flat" style crossmember.

    If I ever find a 88-89 NP241 I'm going to use one of my "short" style adapter and a clocking ring so I can have the crossmember flush with the frame rails.

    The 241 also has a better oiling system /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    From what I know if 241's they are a better option. Especially since its easier to convert the output to fixed yoke.

    Thanks for the info.
