What should I get???

like everything else I do, I go about it the hard and long way. this winter im small block chevy converting my YJ. I have a 85' sb350 one piece rear seal, and a TCI th350 auto tranny. I will be using a Ford 8.8 rear axle from a 95' explorer. Im keeping the D30 up front for the first year, and switching it nxt winter. (im not engaging 4x4 untill i loose the D30) SO, now i need a transfer case! like an idiot, i bought one from craigs list; its a 92' np241 from a chevy truck. Come to find out this WONT bolt up to the th350. so what t-case do I need? ohh, i went to a junk yard and looked at a t-case that was mounted to a th350 and it was the same size as the dang tranny.....this is way to big!PLEASE HELP!!!!!

i hear that the np231 will fair fine behind the 350 as long as it is mostly stock, also from what i understand the np205 is good too. there are lost of other options like a dana 300 but that will need a flip kit to make it drive drop...its like 500 something last time i priced it. and i think your dana 30 is gonna be fine behind it. don't bail on using 4 wheel just cause the axle. it should be fine as long as you show some reserve on the trail..jsut a little!!! novak makes a mount and so does advance adaptors, and some others but i think novak really specializes with chevy conversions, as a matter of fact they give oyu all the strength facts with the axles and tcases and what not...heres the link

http://www.novak-adapt.com/

have fun and good luck...

yeah guys I looked at both those sites already, and the adapter to my jeep's t-case is like $480.00 bucks! thats insane... i'd rather put a chvy case on it and spend the money on good drive shafts. is'nt there any chvy case that will bolt to a th350? what about chvy light trucks from the late 70's? or what other vehicles did chvy have that were 4x4 and used a th350? but, if it has to be the adapter then i guess thats what it has to be...o'hh and the motor will produce around 300hp it's a guess from what i've heard about how i have it set up. all standard overhauling has been done, w/ edelbrk eps intake- matched cam and lifters (eps) edlebrk perform elec choke carb-elec. fan- serp. belt set up. i know, its not injected...but its all my budget could allow.

roll with the np205 and get yourself a twin stick kit. or...you could always look into the 203/205 doubler combo.

if its not a straight forward application (ie. adapter or factory joinable t-case) i dont want it (unless its near bullet-proof) i dont like divorced set-ups or really "backyard" cobbling.
