    That is a full-floting 14 bolt rear axle -- not a Semi-floater .

    Nope 10.5 is all full floater. Also the front is a 10 bolt not a 44. The tcase is def a 203 though.

    IIRC alll the way forward is 4 low lok, then 4 low, neutral, 4 hi 4 hi lok. There isn't a 2wd on this case.

    You have most of the parts for a doubler. You would need to change the input on the 205 to a 32 spline (not sure what is entailed in that) but bolt that 205 to the gear box on the 203 and get some 4to1 action:D .

    hmm i think ill hold off on the doubler but im deff. gonna keep allll the parts

    would this be a straight forward swap? like will everything line up and for the most part bolt up? the '81 has a 305 with a th350 i think
