    So I came up with a 205 with the fixed yoke and I have read about the adapter to make it fit my 700R4. Everyone seems to have different takes on if this is any good or not. So my question is is it worth the trouble to go with the 205 or should I just look for a 241 and put a slip yoke eliminator on it? Suggestions PLEASE!!!!

    241 w/SYE kit, better low range and it already fits your truck, unless you need the brute strength of the 205 or do a lot of rock crawling where you are likely to come down hard on the 241 and shatter the case I'd stay with the 241

    I have a 241 with 700r4 adapter and shifter. Its got about 120k on it and works fine. Came out of a 90 K5. $100 plus shipping.

    there is a $50 adapter-spacer thing you can get that allows you to run a 205 behind a 700R4. I run one in my rig with absolutely no problems.

    Ya i like the gearing of the 241 but the strength and option of twin sticking the 205. Any more pros and cons of either would help.

    slip yokes are the source of all evil in this world... they MUST be eliminated no matter what the cost. :thumb: ;) :D

    Cons? The 205 would be more work (crossmember, mounts, linkage, finding a good 205, maybe rebuilding it, new d-shafts front and rear), and unless you are rock crawling with the pros, you don't REALLY need a twin stick.

    I'd SYE the 241...that's what I'm gonna do to mine.
