Not worried since this truck will have a sealed cab with windows installed. I will be have rubber floor mats that I can remove to clean out the floor easily.

Got the driver seat mounted up. Did the rear outer tab that goes from the floor tube a-b pillar and the smaller 1" tube to cross member infront/above transmission. Also dumb luck the bead roller triangle panel on the rear of the panel the notch for tab went just up to the edge of it.

How tough are those old 205s?

I'm guessing pretty tough since you're using one here.

I remember pulling the one in my Bronco in my parents driveway with nothing but a bottle jack! Doh! Almost died that day.

Tough as nails. But heavy as hell as you noticed. Next step down from an atlas II really. Atlas was based off the 205 from what I've read, but they obviously made those things way lighter.

205 are gear driven t-cases in a cast iron case. extremely reliable and extremely heavy. downfall is the shitty 1.96 to 1 gear ratio but only to those that like crawling. Ive also never seen one NOT leak. in Tommy's case, it will work well.

Yeah a friend had a rock buggy with an LSA and atlas told him for what he was doing with it and the power to run a ORD magnum box and NP205 since it was a stronger setup than an atlas and he had the room to mount it. Not worried about the t-case strength being an issue at all.
