    They came stock with the yoke on the output as well as the slip setup. You can try trading your 205 for a yoke version or rob the parts off of one. I just traded mine at the junkyard.

    He is referring to a Slip Yoke Eliminator kit. As far as I know, they are not offered aftermarket for reasons below.

    The NP205 came factory with both slip style and non slip style rear output shafts. Since these parts are a factory item, you might look at local junkyards or in the for sale boards if interested in purchasing a used setup.

    What you will need:

    Rear Output shaft, bearings, output housings (1 steel with 1 aluminum bearing retainer), yoke, seal and retaining nut.

    Most people offer this in "kit" form when selling on these boards.

    I could find one for you if you want. Expect to pay around $100 plus shipping for this item when shopping around. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks Mudzer,
    I may be back in touch with you, but I'll try to find one local first. I might even have one and not know it. I am buying a K30 that has a 205, but I didn't even look cause I didn't know about them!!

    Chances are if it has an NP205, being in a K30, it might very well be a non slip. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks for the prop's there baBlazer73
    Ill make sure ya get your comission check :-)
    Yea i only have 1 set up left t sell so Mudzer is a good guy also and says he can get em and the price is the same so i say save a little on shipping if he is closer 2 ya
    and
    for what its worth in my experience
    1980 and up are all slip yoke
    and 1979 and down are fixed
    Stick shifts have a better chance of being fixed then a auto
    but ya never know what outher s have done to rig before you seen it

    Mine follows doc's guidelines above with a fixed yoke. I have an extra yoke if you come up short there for some reason. When I replaced the nut (and got the extra yoke) someone told me the 203 yokes and nuts were the same. Anyone know about that and if more parts are the same? If so, I have a junked 203 that I can pull whatever you need from.

    My '91 is fixed yoke - and stick shift. The citeria I've come to know is wether the vehicle has a two-piece driveshaft (& support bearing) or not. One-piece gets the slip, two-piece gets the fixed.

    For '80 newer, you will find up to 131.5" wheelbase (reg cab longbox) gets a one-piece rear shaft; and 135.5" wheelbase (cab & chassis reg cab) and longer gets a two-piece shaft. Tranny type doesn't seem to matter.
