NP205 or 2.5 ton Transfercase

I bought two 2.5 ton trucks I will be keeping one set of axles for my buggy project and parting out and selling what is left.

My question is.

I am going to put the motor which will be a cummins 12v in the rear. It will have a divorced transfercase.

Should I use the 2.5 ton transfercase from the truck or should I find a np205?
Is the military transfercase air shift or manual? The rig will have air bags for suspension so it will have a air compressor.

Go with the 205. Have u seen that t case. They r like 300lbs no {expletive}. They r like anchor's. But they do have badass gearing in them. I would do a 203\205 get some low gears. Thumbs Up!

Due to the shear size and weight of the 2.5 ton t-case, I highly recommend the 205. The 2.5ton is like two feet from top to bottom. I had to lift it w/ a forklift. Don't waste your time w/ it. Also, they come in air shift or manual, but the manual's are less desirable because a different gear setup. I think it binds when you put it in reverse or something like that. ANyhow, good luck.

I kinda thought that a np205 would be the better choice.

Thanks for the help! Very Happy

I do have a guestion about a np205. I will be looking for one with fixed yokes what else should I look for? Did a 205 ever come in a full time 4x4 or was the the np203?

Why would you pay $900 for a transfercase from an M37 (which is an NP200 or NP201 I believe) that might be equal in strength to an NP205 that you can get at any junkyard for under $150?? Bitch Slap Bitch Slap

As far as answering his question...to my knowledge, none of the divorced 205s were slip yokes...the NP203 only came behind fulltime 4wds, NP205s only came behind part time 4wds...they are two different cases for two different 4wd applications.

The dodge divorced NP205 (I have a 1974 NP205) is the strongest of the divorced 205s having 32 spline input and outputs. They were used in GM, Dodge, Ford, and IH...I think Jeep used them in their truck too.
