PO installed a 350 chevy, SM465, and NP205 drivetrain. I am in the process of a semi restoration and need suggestions on what to use for a transfer case shifter boot. Currently I have an open slotted hole.
Have you looked at a Dana 20 transfer case boot? How does your drivetrain fit/work? I have all the same components, and I've been going back and forth about the np205 and getting an adapter for my Dana 20 due to the length. But seeing how people are using the np205 I might give it a shot and save 500.00
I really like the setup, it was installed when I bought the jeep. Only thing is the final drive ratio isn't 1:1, so mileage is only about 11.5. I can take pics of my front and rear axles if you want.
I was doing research on my SM465/NP205 swap and have a couple questions for you. First, I thought the final drive on the SM465 was 1:1? Also, I would love any pictures of the drive line that you have such as the T-case position, skid plate, transmission/t-case shifter locations... Anything would be appreciated if you could!! Thanks for any help that you can offer!
I'm planning on using a dana 300 boot for the transfer case. PO used a Mr gasket universal boot, that works pretty well for the trans. THe dana boot will overlap a little but should be OK. I just ordered a new Mr Gasket boot off Ebay, $15 delivered. I'll snap a few pics of the driveline/shifter positions. I'm gonna start a build thread soon, and will be sure to post stuff there too.
