208 bolt on or slip on

ok, I have been calling around to several wrecking yards here in Seattle. What is the difference between these transfer cases. The 208 bolt on that bolts to the tranny and the 208 slip on that slips onto the yoke. Is one better than another? I'm going to contect it to a NP 435.. Thanks Pete

Re: 208 bolt on or slip on

Um, just sounds to me like the difference in the rear d/s. Some have the slip shaft in the driveshaft, some have it at the rear output of the t-case.

I'd personally run slip shaft in the d/s, unless the t-case will NOT lose ATF when the rear d/s is removed in the other style.

Re: 208 bolt on or slip on

Shilo is right - "fixed or slip" refers only to the rear output yoke. Pickups use the slip yoke - Broncos use fixed.

either one better than the other. There is a price difference of 225.00 buck. 200 for the fixed and 425 for the slip.. thanks Pete

Re: 208 bolt on or slip on

Like I said, I'd go fixed personally. Jeepers spends tons of money for SYE's (slip yoke eliminator kits) to improve their driveline angle and make it possible to limp off the trail with no rear d/s.

If you're putting it in a project and you're gonna build your own d'shafts, get the cheaper one. If you want a direct replacement in a pickup, get the slip.

Re: Ti\'s 82

What model of t-case is it? Does it have a double-cardan at the front of the rear driveshaft? Are you sure it's OE? Got pics?

Re: Ti\'s 82

I'm about 99% sure its an NP-208. It is OE, and there is no double cardan.


The tag on the T-case says model 208F.
