Divorced transfer case

I am in the process of putting a dodge np 205 into my 76' Chevy 3/4 ton truck. I was wonderin if someone who has done this can give some pointer on what they did. How did you mount the shifter, can you use the stock one out of a dodge or is custom better. Would welding the crossmember to the frame be a bad idea?

Re: Divorced transfer case

Can't help with the first part, but I would never weld a cross member to the frame.. Might bite you in the [censored] down the road, and I think most frames are heat-treated so the area around your welds would be substantially weaker than the rest of the frame... Bolt it in good with Gr.8 bolts, and save yourself some hassle down the road..

I would also recomend if you don't own them, buy some VERY GOOD drill bits for drilling thru hardened steel....

Hope that helps bud, good luck with the swap.
