This is what divorced means. In the foreground is the NP205 transfer case that is connected by a short driveshaft to the NP435 four-speed. You can see that extra ride height is needed for driveshaft clearance. The low pinion front axle makes for some interesting U-joint angles when these rigs are lifted. The ’77-and-up trucks used a high-pinion Dana 44, which is often swapped in.
