I was wondering if a 2008 nbs 2500 rear end would fit and work properly underneath and 08 half ton nbs chevy. Wasn't sure if the drive shafts, u joints or yokes would match up ect. Just random thought and was curious

Yes is would bolt up with a little parts swapping, but now you'd have to use different wheels for the front and back meaning you need to carry 2 spares.

Wouldn't the U-joints be different? I think you might need one of those trick u-joints that can adapt different u-joint series. Otherwise, from a bolt-in aspect, I think it is a bolt-in otherwise. And, unless you can find a 6 lug semi-float axle, you would have to carry 2 different sized spares.

See Tim just like over in the suspension department with my other thought of the day. Dang 6 lug and 8 lug pattern...but I would think someone in the after market world would make a 8 to 6 lug conversion

Yea Moser sells an axle swap but the price is close to $900 not including all the other little odds and ends you need to put it all back together, thats why I didnt even mention it.
