NP205 in Jeep

Read a thread that an AMC TH400 could be modified with the tail off a factory TH400/NP205 combo from a fullsize truck. Will this HUGE T case fit in a CJ7 without the Jaws of Life being needed? Would it further cut down the lenth of my rear driveshaft - Is this a viable idea?

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img] My guess is that the overall length would exceed the room available. You could only do that in a CJ Scrambler or whatever it is they call the long wheelbase CJ. The Quadra-Trac transfer case that is behing our TH400 is quite a bit thinner than the NP205 would be and even with that our real driveline is only about ten inches of tube.

I guessed as much - with Jeep guys being so inventive I would have seen this combo in more threads had it been a pratical swap. I guess it is back to the TF727/d300 swap - OR - now I see the NP208 mentioned as a possible - the more I read the less I know.

Re: NP205 in Jeep

This can be done with a turbo 350 but with your AMC motor you're out of luck. The 400 is too long and even with the 350 you would have a very short rear driveshaft. If you have much lift you would need a highpinion rear diff as well. I've seen it done and it is tight!
