S10 Small block, w/fs Axles, trans fer case quastions

Hey guys, need a recommnedation on a transfercase for an S-10 with a small block running fullsize axles. I was looking for something with a drop in it to reduce driveline angles to the rear axle. Any help would be appreciated, plan on running 35-37 inch tires, and I'm worried the rear driveshaft angle would be a problem.

find a 205, gear to gear and almost unbreakable and you can add a 203 gear section to it for a doubler if you ever choose to. What tranny are you running? How much lift?

Right now this is in the project stage, my brother just purchased a short bed stepside S-10, he wants to run full size straight axles, a mild small block, and he want to go with a 700R4 just because the metric 200 tranny in it is slightly smaller than the 700R4, and he won't have to beat the tranny tunnel out of it. He;s figuring about 6 inches of lift,

you can always push the rear axle back 2-3 inches for a better angle and clock the pinion up slightly and relocate the spring perches for better angle.

We had discussed that scenario but he is reluctant because he doesn't want to detract from the body lines by moving the axle backwards. He is trying to transform it into a complete straight axle conversion and still maintain the somewhat stock appearance other than big tires and a straight axle in the front. This is going to be his daily driver, he doesn't like IFS and prefers a straight axle, and he said he wants it to be different, I was hoping we could use a SYE and a CV driveshaft to make it work, but he was thinking he would have to have a dropp transfercase.

redoing the spring perches will not take away from stock look and you can drop the tcase an inch with no problem

Look to see what other people have done on a FS blazer. The wheelbase on a short bed single cab s10 is actually 2" longer than a K5 and the drivetrain length should be about the same.
