    sorry, cancel that I found this:NP 208

    Type: Chain-driven, aluminum
    Low-range ratio: 2.61:1
    Weight (lb): 79
    Lubricant: ATF
    Length (in): 8.0 (GM); 15.5 (AMC)
    Width (in.): 20.0
    Height (in.): 5.0
    Used by: Many full-size vehicles, including Jeep pickups and Wagoneers (which used a left-side front output shaft). A part-time unit that replaced the stronger, heavier NP 203, the NP 208 can't stand up to the horsepower that the NP 205 can, but failure is more often related to low oil level than too much input torque. The 'case utilized left- or right-side front output shafts. All Jeep model 208s have the same spline and output-shaft size and bolt pattern as the Dana 300.


    Ok now I have another question
    Are they strong enough that you can run 35s or 38s with em?

  3. I have run 33's up to 44's with them and the only problem I had with it is the case doesn't handle the rocks as well and I split the case open once. I run one in my Burb now with 38's with no problems(replaced the input seal once)
