    only if its a 4x4 one, 4x4 are the shgortes version of any model of tranny and dont have output shaft housing, so if it has an output shaft housing then it is not a 4x4 tranny lol, you said is 2wd so answer is no,

    2wd is not 4x4

    its pretty basic

    Short shaft 2wd WILL fit a 205 t-case.

    Short shaft 2wd will NOT fit a 208 (shorter) or a 203 (shortest).

    I am 99% sure of this.

    I'll second that a short shaft 2WD bolt on yoke TH400 shaft WILL work and is the same length as the 4WD version . Note: I think the shaft length changes on the 1985 ( round pattern 205's ) and up 4WD TH400's . Tom

    I also heard the bolt on yoke style 400 would take a 205. Somebody posted the shaft length awhile back, but I don't have it. I have a 2x 400 with my 205. I measured the output shaft and it was the same as the 400 the t-case came from. so, it's in there!
