    I am contemplating the same issue and remember seing a link to a website a couple of months ago on a thread here.
    It was a replacement yoke, flange style that you bolt to your existing output shaft after you drill and tap it for a bolt to hold it on.
    I will do a search and when I find it I will post a link, or you can do the search too.

    Cool thats the kit I want to get $375 seems like a good deal .I figure to pull the t case and have it bench drilled for the output bolt .This should cure the infamous clunk while in drive syndrome Ive had for years .I am planning on getting one soon I will let you know how it works or you can get one and let me know how it works /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Anyone out there use this kit yet?? /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    I was originally contemplating this setup until I realized it was actually cheaper to go with a 205 mounted behind my 700 than to go with this setup. In addition, you might want to do some seraches on that company name and check with the BBB. There has been lots of bad press about that company, the quality of their craftsmanship, and their customer service after the sale.

    I am still waiting for a reply from them after emailing them on friday.
    I am set on the 208 because I want the 2.62:1 low gear and I am putting a Klune V behind it which they have for a 208 but not for a 205 except the newer round 6 bolt mounting.
    I will keep looking for a setup that will work for me with the 208.
    If not these guys someone else.

    I have the kit...I also have the companies driveshafts (aka arizona driveline). THe driveshafts are a complete shitefest. I broke the rear twice but now they are both worn out pretty badly. As far as the yoke goes it's a pretty straight forward mount up but they did not pull my t-case so I doubt it's 100 percent straight. I'm more worried about the shafts. THe cool thing is if the rear shaft breaks you can use the bolt on yoke to "cap" the tailshaft and keep all your goo from spilling out. I'm going to have highangle build me my rear shaft and then I'll really test the strength of the bolt on yoke kit. I have beat on my truck pretty hard and no breakage yet.

    K10ANDY... has done alot of work getting Dodge 208 parts to bolt up to a chevy to make it a fixed yoke. There is a shift rail support inside the case that has to be moved to make the dodge work on the chevy. I can never remember what the last half of his screen name is but he is the guy you want to talk to.
