needs a t-case. its only 2wd. I can add a divorced NP205 in less than a day. For the price it aint a problem

This will also help the driveshaft angle. Which really isnt that bad its no worse than mine i can assure you that.

I highly doubt it. I havent went though any u-joints except broken ones from being stupid.

if you know how to properly setup pinion angles and transmission angle its not much of a problem.

But the NP205 will help with this, because it will be a hanging t-case.

Nice truck Dixie.
