thanks for the replies, my next question is about the gears. Gas is very, very big bucks here - about 4bucks a gallon. I have 3.73 gears in my rearends now, how would the 205 affect my fuel milage? I can also get the th350 auto that is bolted to the 205, that would also change the gearing again!!! (i,m running a HO 350) There arn't many rocks here(not like Moab) I'm in canada, we got mud and lots of snow.
