    Are you sure about that Nick? Looks like a 208 T-case shifter in the pic.

    Hard to tell by the pics but doesn't looked like D60 sized front hubs either...might want to double check.


    Good purchase regardless...their getting tougher and tough to find. :)

    So it's cast iron T-case, not aluminum? Some one must have swapped it in, it's definitely looks like a 208 shifter judging by the pic (little tough to see though). Just wanted to be sure so if you did a fluid change on it you got the correct fluid in it. The 208's dont run long with gear lube in them. :salute:

    Nice Nice! Man, you've got quite the amount of trucks... Do you actually work all of them every storm or have a few kickin around just in case one breaks...I just bought my first used truck the other day.. 95 F-250 w/ only 86,000 KM. hope she will do well... maby old trucks are the ticket.

    Nick, where the heck are you finding these deals on the old iron?? I would kill to have another 84 K20. Had one with 350/400 D44 front, 14bolt rear, NP205 transfer case. That truck was a tank, bought it when I was 14. That new truck looks real nice!!! 700 bucks is one heck of a steal on that thing

    thx again guys for the comments well except jd's of coursetymusic

    hey tom i found this one on craigslist guy was 1000 firm but i sensed his need for money and put 700 on the hood and he took it:drinkup:

    deere thx the shop definitely is a huge plus is a snow removal business nothing like being warm having the tools and a lift to fix something in the middle of a storm
