All three transfer cases can have different front output yokes depending upon the year and application. Stephen Watson at Offroad Design warns us that 205s have different front-output spline count depending on the year: '69-'78 205s use 34-spline shafts, '79-'81s use 30, and '82-'86s use 24. To switch output yokes, you must get a new yoke with the same spline count as your output shaft. Regardless of which type your truck uses, switching from either the 203 or 208 to a 205 will require a shorter front driveshaft.
