All Chevy parts, with ford axles... Need guidance

Hey guys, just as the title says, I have a 79 cj7, 350, th350 Trans and a 203 transfercase sitting in my garage. As I am piecing this all together a good friend drops by and GIVES me the front and rear axles off of a 2000 F250. And as y'all all know, the chunk is driver while my Chevy parts are passenger. I'm talking complete axles down to calipers, pads, rotors, you name it. Being he saved me an easy $1000 dollars on axles, what are all my options to make this work?? Iv heard of cuttin the tubes out of the chunk all the way to a dana300 flip kit. What's the easiest and most budget friendly way to approach this? I'd hate to sell them to get a Chevy or dodge front end since this is a good friend of mine and these things still have the stickers and bar codes on them! You always hear of guys running a 350 with ford axles. How do they make it work?? ANY help would be appreciated. Thanks

np241 transfer case. one from a newer IFS chevy truck. IFS is drivers drop. should be able to get one and the proper adapter to go to your TH350 tranny from a junkyard. I am running a 79 ford HP60 in my 89 K5 blazer using a drivers drop 241 in place of my factory passenger drop unit.

Someone mentioned that the other day, but after a lot of research I found out I have to change the rear shaft on my 350 to mate to the 241 and the kit is $$$$. Is there any other options??

Ok so say I had an 87 700r4 Trans, that would bolt straight to my 241 with no adapters ( other Than factory) and I'd be good to go??

Yes the 241 came factory behind the 700r4. Just a warning, the sye for the 241 is pretty pricey!

A slip yoke eliminator. The 241 has a VERY long tailshaft. So to keep the driveshaft as long as possible and to run a cv driveshaft, you need a sye. Go to jbconversions.com and look at the sye for a Chevy np241 super short sye.

you should be able to get a TH 350 to bolt to the 241. i guess it would depend on the year of the tranny, as i had a 241 behind a th350 in an older chevy i had.


but yes, a 241 would bolt behind a 700r4 as well.

what year and spline count is your current th350?
