    Another 205 question... The 205 I had picked up for my truck turns out to be slip yoke (and was identified by none other than Rene himself, LOL!) and I was wondering what parts are required to convert it to fixed yoke and what the process is. Is it something I can do or should it be performed by a specialist??? Any ideas on costs, labor and parts?? Thanks again!!

    I was at ORD site a few days ago, and they have added transfer case parts to their catalog, including a conversion kit for your 205, hope this helps Jeff

    I will be posting an article in the tech section next week showing the differences between the two and what is needed to do the conversion if you are able to wait.
