    I know of two ways: using a combination of dodge and GM parts and the goofey kit arizona drivelines sells. I am not famiar with the specifics of either (although I have heard the dodge is the way to go)

    I did mine using dodge parts. You need the dodge rear half of the case, tailshaft housing and mainshaft. See my webshots for pics of mine.

    Yes I have cherokee 208 parts in my truck. The rear half bolts on to the GM 208 minus one bolt. And if you do not do anything else but bolt it there it will leake oil in 4 places (do not ask me how I know...). It do not anymore because I made a "gasket" of thin steel, 1mm, and instant gasket on each side. It is perfect for me, my 208 is upside down but with cherokee rear half the breather on the output housing is pointing in the right direction. And no slip yoke anymore/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif.

    Ohtervise it fits like it was ment to be there. Atleast the rearoutput shaft is 32 spline, did not check the front because I do not use it.
