    Does anybody know of a kit that eliminates the slip yoke on a NP-208? If so where can I buy one?

    I did a search on this subject and found all kinds of info. Give it a try, you find the answers.

    Sure!

    The kit is called.... an NP205!

    Seriously, I don't think it exists. If you need that little extra low-range, the NP241 from an 88-91 Blazer/Jimmy/Sub will accept a JB Conversions SYE kit.

    did the dodge/ chevy thing. As long as you get the correct spine count dodge setup it's pretty straight forward. I had to open open three T-cases though before we found the correct match. For what's it's worth it's in the best of interest to go the 205 route though. I remember being told no one solds a fixed yoke kit for the NP208C.....

    You call that dirty!?

    Would the 241 kit work in the 208? Seemd like they would as similar as they are

    I saw a post from a couple months ago by Iceman that he did this .He used a Ford 208 to do this.He used the output shaft from the ford and the tail housing.He redrilled the chevy 208 case so he could bolt on the ford tail housing.I think he had to modify the shifter also.It didnt sound all that bad.I saw another post by a guy that did the same thing and he said he got it together and it worked but the t case didnt shift right.It sounds like a great idea if it works.I just found where I saw it .Its on a post from 3/4/01 by super bee.Iceman on there gives a good idea of what it takes.
