    I bought this 81 Blazer for $1000. Has 30,000 on fresh engine, new NP-208 transfer case, new stock rear-end, no rust. All it needs is interior desperatly. Where is a good place to upgrade. I need everything including seats. Does anyone sell a complete kit and also can I upgrade to a newer 90's interior. Sorry if this has already posted but search did not help. One more thing why would someone switch to NP-208 from 205 from whta I read the 205 is the better transfer case of the bunch.

    The salvage yards are my favorite parts store. Yes, later model parts can be used. There are several mailorder companies that have most all the interior parts. Check out the "links" section of this very website. Most are there.

    208 has a 2.6:1 low range
    205 has a 2.0:1 low range

    Like Micheal said, salvage yard. Are you doing a restoration, or trying to get your truck going good?
