    Out at the farm i work at on the weekends we have an 84 dodge 4wd that is just sitting there getting picked for parts, the rear-end, transfercase or tranny siezed up on it so the started parting it out i havent really done anything but look at it. i did notice that it has a 208 in it with a fixed yoke. I am currently working on my shortbox with 14" of lift, it also has a 4speed and a slip-208 transfercase, if that case is good will it bolt-up or is there any way i can maybe swap shafts and make mine a fixed yoke too?

    Yes. You need to take the rear part of the case off the dodge and make it fit on the front chevy case. I have some pictures on my comp at my house. I can send them if you would lile. There was a post on this a good while back. You will have to fab up something for the speedometer, and something for the rear support strut mounting hole (needs to be welded on).

    if you use the doidge case itself, swap the chev input in it then you can run it with no fabbing and since the dodge case is clocked different, when it bolts tot the chevy adapter it sits completly flat. You do need a body lift or floor mods to do this :)
