    Does anyone know what crossmember, type/shape, to use on a k20 with an nv4500/np205 setup?

    Any of the '85 and up crossmembers. That would be the W or S type.

    Should be either of these. The W one is pretty hard to find since it was only used either 85 and 86 or maybe 84-86. The other type is better IMO anyway. Had a wider footprint for stability and is a couple inches more shallow so you're not as likely to snag it on something and bend it up. I've seen as may bent up W members as I have non screwed up members. Never seen the other type damaged.

    By dropdown, what do you mean sir??? Maybe suggest a post # that it's pictured in and which pic from the top it is. Like for example Post #33 Pic #2 from the top.

    I was talking about the second picture in post #21. I actually found one locally for about $60. I've already installed it on my blazer now i just need to put the transfer case in and measure for a driveshaft.

    This I believe is a 700r4, or possibly a th350/np208 short tcase adapter and skid plate blazer I believe 85-87
