    I've been considering a SYE for my np241, but was just wondering if I may come out cheaper if I find an older t-case that doesn't have a slip yoke and install it. Is there a way to adapt to the elctric speedo or would I have to change that out? Would I need the t-case crossmember out of the donor truck? Are there any particular cases that I should look for to bolt to my 700r4?

    Much cheaper to just SYE the 241. All you need is a rear shaft then. You start changing t-cases and you worry about adapters and different driveshafts, lever linkage....too much to worry about. You'd spend around $400 for shaft and kit, but hell, that's less than you'd pay for a swap and would be a hell of a lot lighter than any old iron 205.

    Besides, with the electric speedo, you can get the super short SYE kit. I'm out of luck since I have the cable speedo 241. 89 was the only year for that.

    I figured it would be easier for the SYE, but I thought I'd check to make sure. And where did you get the $400 number? Cheapest I have found is about $750 + shipping. If it were $400 it would have been ordered allready. I'm looking at almost $400 for just the shaft.
