    Check with Tom Woods at www.4xshafts.com. He sells both JB Conversions and Currie Enterprises slip yoke eliminator kits. Or you can contact the manufacturers directly. They have it for the NP241 so I would guess they would have one for the NP208.

    Good Luck

    Still in search of the TBI KING!!

    P.S. The JB Conversion's 241 kit direct from JB is $340.

    I don't know of anyone who makes a kit for the 208. Maybe you could find a 241 for a reasonable price and then convert it to fixed yoke.
    I think the only reason they have a kit for the 241 is that is basically uses the same parts as the kit for the 231 so there wasn't much R&D required to market the kit, and there probably isn't much of a market for a 208 kit since they are mostly found in fullsize trucks which don't run into the driveshaft angle problems as much as Jeeps and there are not as many people building them up for the trail.

    Corey if you want the fixed yoke to keep fluid in your case when the driveshaft breaks then just carry a plug with you. I made one for my Suburban with the NP208. Noone makes a fixed yoke kit for the NP208. If you want a fixed yoke for driveshaft angle then you're better off swapping in a NP241, NP205 or Atlas. You could have a machine shop make up the parts using the slipyoke and welding a retaining collar on the back. You would also need a roller bearing for support.

    I thought I read some where that Dodge's use (used) fixed yoke 208s. If so, it would be fairly easy to find a complete Dodge 208 case and swap in the output shaft and housing from the Dodge 208 to your Chevs. LEt us know if this works.
