    Is it possible..to take a 208 and hang it straight down.. i was told that the 6 studs and hanging the 208 down will work with the removal of one stud?? Seal over with rtv. Problem is lack of money for a 60 and a m37 divorce case and all the blah blah blah associated with the big boy turning toys but my suburban has 42's on it and a lot of lift where the front drive shaft is not happy..If i could hang the 208 down that would put my front shaft near stock degree again and make life easier just to go in 4x4 to pull out the local jeeps..IF this has been done id like to see or be explained how, im no rock crawler just a weekend recovery truck for the jeep guys or whoever gets stuck here in the florida mud.

    Just get a clocking ring and do it the right way. It only cost about $67 bucks from Great Lakes Offroad I believe. Clocking rings are not for just moving the T-case up it allows you to rotate it any direction. The problem would be with your driveshaft rotating toward the center of your rig as well as how to shift the T-case.

    Eliminate the CV joint and just run single u-joints at each end. Single u-joints take alot more angle than a CV-joint.

    How much lift is "a lot"? You may need to add a second, divorced case.
