Not sure on drive shafts, but if it originally had a 208, you will have to run in HI LOC all the time when you don't want 4wd.

I got a ? too. If you have a full timer, can you just switch the front axle hubs to part timers? I've seen a few kits in Summit I was looking at. Way cheaper than a new axle. And I'm going to be getting a new 4spd anyway from a crewcab that my buddy has.

Install the 727/203 and leave the hubs locked all the time.

i was thinking that sence it has the manual lockouts on it, that if i locked them, and left the tcase an standand hi, it would work as a fulltime fourwheel drive

yes, keeping the hubs locked in would give you full time in hi. i dont know if there would be any damage caused by this but there is a kit to convert locking hubs to full time tied in front axle which you might want to research. as far as drive shafts the 203 is much longer out back than the 208, so the rear shaft will probably have to be shortened. i think the front shaft will work as long as it has the flange and not a u-joint.
