swapping a np208 from a t-176 to a tf727

I have the oppurtunity to buy an NP208 from behind a T-176 fairly cheap. I want to put it behind the tf727 that I'm going to swap into my YJ. Will it work? I'm assuming that it will because they both have 23 spline out puts and a new process case bolted to the 727 before so the bolt pattern should be the same.

I did this in my '89 YJ. It bolted right up

The somewhat rare '80s Jeep T-18/NP-208 combo is the only one to avoid. It uses the same spline count as Ford did.

thanks for the help, I think I'll get it if it's still available. Has the swap worked out good for you? The 208 has a pretty good reputation for being strong so I think I'll be happy.

The NP-208 is so damn big that it hangs down 2" through a hole I enlarged in the skidplate. I would recomend re-drilling the adapter to rotate (AKA "clocking") the x-case clockwise for better clearance. Otherwise, it is damn strong for an aluminum chain-drive...
