    I hope you have the cross members because that will be major difference, also the 208 is a slip yoke,the 205 is not, the 400 is also a bit longer than the 350 but you will need to mod drive shafts any how

I already know about drivelines and hopefully I'll have the scratch to get both front and rear done at high angle...Theres a good chance I might be leavin VA end of march and I'll be driving back home so I know I'll need 4x4
