    I just did a 700R4/208 to TH350/205 swap and had to drill new holes. 2 beers, 4 new holes, and it was just like store bought. [​IMG]

    Was hoping to get away with the drive shafts that I had but it seems the rear one is to short and the front one is just a tad to long "it fits but no room to play" let me know what yall think "BTW I have already drilled other holes I just thought I was stoned and missed something"

    After swapping from manual to auto trans, and 208 to 203 xfer case, you're definitely gonna need new driveshafts.
