If you went for a pumpkin on the drivers side, there would be no problem with ford parts. Whe do you want a pass side diff? I've seen several with the normal 350,t350&205 witht he stock toy axles with no problems. It's just simpler. Also, the chev is actually bigger and heavier than the ford, but with the acc. on it the chev is far smaller. I'm not a chev man either, but I've learned that none of them makes anything good. Just pick and choose the best parts you can find.

arnt the ford d44's pumpkin on the pass sode??? Does fordf have a transfer with the driverside output for the front shaft??

just about all fords are on the drivers side. Chev and dodge are normally on the pass. Jeep and cornbinders are wherever they wanted that year.

ok, driverside diff it is, What came out with a c4 and a np208??

I think a dana 20 would probably be your best bet to find. I'm thinking the older rangers, early 80's might be your best bet, but I'm not sure. There are several others on this board with the little fords who would be better to inform you. My experience is with the bigger engines, namely ones with c6's.

wan't the d20 only used in early bronco's 66-77'? as far as i know up till 79' in the fullsizes it was a 205(standard) or 203 as a option (with c6 auto) 80' an up went with the 208 then they switched to the bw1354 somwhere along the line
the c4 can be built to handle good power but if you don't want to dump alot of $$ onto a tranny i'd look for a small block c6 with a 205 behind it it's a bigger tranny but you will never kill it so long as it don't overheat okor's right unless you wanna run a divorced case then your stuck on the drivers side output
if you want overdrive grab a AOD and bolt a 205 to. it the AOD is pretty much a c6 with o/d
it's light it's fast it's powerful
everything a chevy isn't
