    I Notice Most People Prefer The 205 Over The 208. What Are The Advantages Of The 205 Compared To The 208?

    205 case is made of cast iron so you can land on it without breaking it. 208 is aluminum so it has to be well protected out in rock country. 205 is all gear drive which means no chain to wear out/streach. 208 has a better low range at 2.5 to 1, NP205 low range is 1.9 to 1.
