    In about 1000 pieces along I40 in west oklahoma :)

    So im driving from daytona beach Fl to Albuquerque nm towing a civic, and my upper U joint fails at about 70mph...

    Yah it was bad...pics coming soon.


    My question is, i need a new Tranfercase and drive shaft what are my options?
    Find another NP241? or 208? 205? i know the 241 came in the later model K5s like mine, but are they better?

    And for drive shafts... put a rebuilt stocker back in or have one built with a CV or something?

    Thanks

    Is your rig lifted? What do you use it for?

    You most likely will be able to find a np208 faster than a np241. The adapter is the same.

    The 241 has the lower low range(2.72:1), but the 208 (2.61:1) isn't far behind.

    what year is ur rig? if its an '89 you have more options. 90-91 is electric speedo and you pretty much can only use a 241 from a 90 or 91 without needing mods. if you have an '89 you have mechanical speedo, and can run an '89 241 or any 208. it also depends on ur tranny. th400 is 32spline, 700rr4 is 27spline.

    89' with the mechanical speedo and a 700r tranny.

    I just dont know what th differences between the 205/208/241 etc are...is it just gear ratios, or is one better then another?

    Have fun. Passenger side 241's are a bitch to find and they are usually at least $300. If you can afford it, great, if not, put a 208 in.

    I would do a 208 for an easy quick swap. But 205 if you are going to rock it:D

    A 208 has the 2.61:1 low range, but it uses a chain and a aluminum housing. You can do a fixed yoke kit by using dodge parts, but its not a simple swap.

    A 205 has a 1.96:1 low range, but uses gears and a steel housing. The 205 can take a beating and easily be upgraded to 32 spline out puts and a fixed rear yoke.
