Swap in a part time case. A 241 or a 208 (I'd go 241). What side is your diff on your front axle on? You can still put a divorced case behind the married one, either way, for a cheap doubler if that's what you are going for.

NO the 208 will not bolt up to your motor... no transfer case will.

Sure man, try running the 246. You'll change your mind real quick.

Well what do you use it for then?

The no t-case will bolt up to your motor thing is because a transfer case bolts up to the transmission. Not the motor.

But I honestly can't answer the question about the t-case in full confidence. I have forgotten which ones are bolt in. But I ... THINK ... that the 241-c is a bolt in. 208 might be too.

get yourself a driverdrop 241 from a 88-98 chevy 1/2ton and it will bolt up the hardest part of it will be you need to get a vss plug from that year truck and splice it into you current t-case harness. i beleive it is the rear most plug on the t-case, but not sure pm darketernal he should now he done it in his truck.

I think the auto track won't shift right with out the acturator and sensors from the stock front end.
Most people on a SAS go with the NP241 Pass. drop transfer case which is what American was saying cause they use a chevy front end.. Now with that said I also think a Lever shift transfer case 99 and up should work just fine. But not sure.

driver's drop 241-c is the ideal swap in IMHO. Just source it from a 88-98 body style GM. Maybe 99+

The newer trucks use the 26x cases, from what I understand the casing is slightly larger and magnesium instead of aluminum. Id try to find one of those to swap in if it were me.

ya american i understand you were trying to be a smart elic but it don't work bc i look over small comments like that. the funny thing is you knew what i was talking about but its cool. well i can get my hands on a 241 out of an 88-98 chevy but its either that or run a divorced 205 behind mine.
bo185- yes i was thinking the same thing about it not acting right without the the stock front end in my truck. too many sensors to be messing with.
