After many tries, I am finally close to getting another truck. I plan to get an M1009 military blazer, but I don't like the np208. I know that when swapping a 205 in place of a 203, the rear shaft has to be lengthened, and the front shortened, but is this also the case when replacing the 208, which is much shorter? I know I will have to change the U-joints, but since I also plan a 1-ton axle swap, I will only use the hybrid ujoint for now, rather than change the ends of the shaft. I know I will have to do more to the rear shaft, but I will probably keep the slip joint on the 205 until I get the axles, then change the whole shaft and the rear output at the same time.
