I hope the pinion angle is good and not much articulation is hoped for.
Couldn't he use a Dana 20 transfer case? If so, wouldn't that be quite a bit shorter than the NP231?

edit: The OP has an Unlimited. I would think he would be fine with the NP231.

Swap bodies. Keep the frame, running driveline, and axles all under the Ford frame. Put your Jeep body on that. Trim the rear wells for the wheelbase. Sell off the Bronco body for parts for other and probably make back your initial cost.

The Ford frame is much stiffer. The driveline can handle itself as proven it is still running together. Modify the stock radius arms for articulation with extending them as well as putting a rod end on the end. Have fun with it.
The wheelbase of the Bronco is in line with a CJ6/8 length.

i have the same wheelbase as a cj8 and the nv241 t case, but i don't know if i'm going this route anymore after finding out about the radius arm d44. it would take to much work to put it under the jeep. i'll probably just wait around until a f250 comes up for sale around here for cheap


vvvthis is what they don't tell you about LCGvvv
...I went with the lcg method but its never ending be because once you fix one thing something else breaks or needs upgrading...

If you could find a Supercab F150 they have the leaf sprung HPD44 in the front as well. That's what mine is.
