    I have heard that the Dodge version of the NP208 has a rear fixed yoke instead of the slip yoke on the GMs. Has anyone done the conversion for this? Does the t-case need to be removed and disassembled, or can the tailshaft be removed and replaced in the vehicle. Were all the Doge NP208 t-cases fixed yokes or only select years?

    I almost did this a couple years ago. Not sure what years the Dodge fixed yokes were, I spotted mine laying on the ground in a junkyard. The tailshaft doesn't bolt on, you'd have to use the front half of the Chevy case and the rear half of the Dodge case and mix & match the internals. I'm pretty sure it would work, but not positive. Dodge used an odd u-joint, so you'd have to get a new yoke, but I think the splines are standard. I'd pull the t-case to do it, it's pretty easy (to pull).
