    I dont think there is a kit, because there are dodge 208 cases that have a standard yoke. You just swap the parts into your 208 and be done with it.

    There isn't a kit like the one for the 241. Also, the dodge conversion isn't 100% bolt together because the dodge rear case doesn't have mounting points for the strut.

    There is a kind of slip yoke eliminator for them, but all it really is, is a hole drilled/tapped into the output shaft and a bolt inserted there. It does nothing for the length but it does keep it from slipping out, worthless in my opinion.

    There is no good kit available, which is amazing due to the millions of 208 cases sitting in Chevys and Fords around the world.

    There is the Dodge/Chevy hybrid plan, but only a couple of guys here have ever done it and to be a direct replacement, you have to weld chevy threaded parts onto the back half of the Dodge case you would be using. I looked around here and Dodge fixed yoke 208 cases are like $350+ in scrapyards.

    Then there is the bolt on flange that goes with an unmodified 208. It will actually shorten your driveshaft a little bit. This solves the driving with no rear driveshaft and spline binding problems, but doesn't get rid of any slip-yoke slop. You can see an example here

    I heard Jess at high angle was working on one, but it has never materialized. Not knowing any better, I think it should be pretty similar to the kit for the 241.

    So the fixed yoke dodge 208 that i got when I traded an old th350 from a 2wd was a good deal then? /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    I have a Dodge/Chevy hybrid 208. All I know is in fact it has some custom welding done to it, I've never taken it apart, much less got it on yet...........

    I also have a chevy/dodge hybrid. You have to weld a piece inside the case and you have to weld the threaded pieces for the support rod.
