Default 2000 2WD F350 to 4WD

I am going to pick up a matching set of axles out of a 86 F350 with 4.10 gears complete with springs. The front is a kingpin.

For a transfer case I have a NP205 and the guy told me a NP208 came in the truck the axles are from. Is that my best option? The 205 I have is the married variety but I could pick up a divorced one also.

My truck is a 7.3 manual trans crewcab with a flatbed so it is probably longer than a crewcab with a 8ft bed so there is plenty of room for a divorced setup other than the shifter could be too far back.

Will the 208 bolt up to the back of the ZF( I think that is the trans in it)?

Might need some help getting this done if anyone can offer any help.

Thanks, Jay.

Bw1345? Is probably a better choice.

I need to know why please. I am shopping for the rest of the conversion so if you know where I can get what I need please let me know.

Will it bolt up to the 2WD manual trans? It is a ZF, right?

It looks like there is a guy in Hartland with two of those for sale.

I dont think it would bolt to a 2wd. I have an e4od in my powerstroke and a bw1356 i believe. I dont know if the 205 is wide enough.

The 1356 is an electronically controlled transfer case, I would prefer a manual shifted transfer case.

If it is divorced he could offset it just a hair, the rear is still probably long enough to justify a 2 peice driveshaft to make the driveline that moves with the axle straight anyway.

Sure, slightly complicated, but not that big of a deal. Plus then he doesn't have to worry about a different trans, or swapping tailshafts, or any of that garbage, fab up some drive shafts (he'll prolly need custom anyway) and a crossmember and he's done.

Jay, I have a driveshaft you can have when you grab that topper, cv joint was rebuilt wrong by the local machine shop. Also hancho just around the corner has some superduty front leaf springs I was going to buy from him to bring my truck down a little.

The axles I am getting are complete with springs. But if I end up needing them I will let him know, thanks.

The driveshaft I will need, thanks.

Divorced is always an option. My posts weren't relating to a divorced setup. Could probably fab up a cable shift setup to put the shifter in a desirable location.

Good call on the cable shifter.

I am open to any suggestions and the easiest the better unless there is something better than easy, within reason.

I am not in a hurry to get this done, just want it done right.

Just for clarification you never mentioned a year. It seems your other threads are mentioning a 2000 SD.

Yes 2000 F350.

I picked up the axles today, supposed to be from an 86 F350 with 4.10 gears.
The front axle is supposed to have had the bearings replaced and all the steering, has new brakes on it too and came with springs. Front and rear for $700.

Just need to get the frame hangers or make some and shackles and then figure out what transfer case to get.

Kickstart has a driveshaft for me I am picking up tomorrow.

Going to try an run a set of the wheel and tire deals from Bigb. Don't think they will fit until I get the 4x4 springs in there.

Going to need to get a set of springs for the rear to match the front. I was supposed to get those in the deal too but the dude was a hilljack mudtruck kinda dude. Still think it was a decent deal if the axles turn out to be what he says.

According to the D60 bible from Billavista they should work fine. The measurements seem to be the same as far as spring spacing. The steering could be different. I will find one local to compare to.

Any chance this transfer case will bolt up to the 6-speed ZF?

And what is a good programmer to get some more go out of it?

What you got?

I like this truck and the low miles and the price was right.

I dont mind putting the axle and transfer case in just need to find out what will work. I don't have any experience with 1-ton vehicles or diesels for that matter.
