    I don't have the t-case you need. What part of CO are you in? If someone close by knows of a t-case they may be able to point you in the right direction.

    You might have better luck just looking for a NP208 & adapter to go behind that 400. That 203 is in pretty good demand for doubler use, so it is rare to find a good deal on the boards.

    Well, I guess that's not really a good option either. Then you'd need new driveshafts. Never mind. Good luck, though.


    Hey James, where'd these Colorado guys come from? And why aren't they wheelin' with us?

    I don't think we're that scary. Maybe it's that big ass Punisher skull on your hood, John. :thinking:

    What did you expect when you created all those rainbow emblems, no one in their right mind is going on a trip with us now.

    Oh, I know "no-punishing" isn't scaring them off. It has to be the "cricket" and his special interest group the "homoghay bunch" :):)

    These guys probably see how ruthless we are with each other and figure that if that is how we treat our friends, then what in the workd would we do to them?!?!?!

    We don't bite guys. We'd love to see you on the trail. Or in my driveway, which is the only thing my rig has seen since 1990...:mad:

    I think John's right, tight knit, ruthless and scarey! :deal:

    I think John may have the answer, who would want to go watch him punish the drive way, Actually I have seen the punisher on the road, oh what a month or six weeks ago it actually ran all the way to Greeley and I would assume home again. Perhaps John if you promise not to wear the KILT and wear stretch jeans they won't be so worried.:haha: :haha: "cricket" :pimp1: be sure to leave all of the rainbow trappings home and maybe they will join us. I promise not to be so grouchy also!:haha: :haha: Yes sir the more trucks that show up the more fun we have, join us gentlemen!

    Maybe it's because we just jump in and poop all over any Colorado thread in the regional forum. I think we have officially hijacked this thread.:rolleyes:

    I'll keep an eye out the next time I'm at the local pick 'n pull. Never know what one might find.

    What part of Colorado are you in?

    Go over to the pick-a-part on I-70 and Peoria. Good chance you'll find one there. Either that or check craigslist, place a free add if needed in the parts section.

    Just spent all day at Action and Pick a Part and didnt see any thing for your rig.:( Saturday I was also at a couple of yards down here near the springs and didnt see anything. The guy I'm getting my 203 from says he'll check if he has anything for a Th400. I'll let you know when he replies.
