Re: Yeah!!I got a jeep today!!!!

Don't play around with parts, go with a new chain in the 208, which is what it sounds like it is for a transfer. It'll probably run you a few hundred ($300-$500) to have a shop put a new chain in it.

As to the engine, forget fuel injection, just get the carb running well and stick with it. The NP208 is OK, certainly up to the V-6 power, but I agree, do the fixed yoke conversion.

The TH350 is a good tranny, one of the stongest, it's hard to kill them. They're also a popular swap due to their short length.

Sounds like a nice jeep if everything was put together well.
