Re: Anyone running a T18/NP205 or NP435/NP205 w/258?
Wel, the only problem is the NP435 and T-18 are both Ford trannies (you knew this), but the NP205 that came with them has a driver's side drop, not the passenger's side you need. I am running the SM465/NP205 setup in my scrambler, and it's only 3.5" longer than the stock SR-4/D300 combo that was in there. I do know of someone that is running a NP435 in their Scrambler, but they needed an adapter to run the D300 for the correct side. If you wanted to swap front axles to a Ford one, to get the driver's drop, it should work. Hey, just coil it while you're at it!
