    What's the latest on kits for this? I see these:

    http://www.driveshaftsuperstore.com/slip_yoke.htm

    but I don't really get it. Does it just attach onto the same output where the slip yoke currently is and mount somehow? If so, the length would be the same, so not much benefit except being able to drive home on the front wheels.

    I think I've seen plugs for sale someplace, and probably cheaper than $550. I've already got a CV slip-yoke shaft.

    I would also be interested in getting rid of that tail section. Anyone listening?

    It attaches to the output shaft. A person drills a hole in the shaft, bolt the slip shaft onto the output shaft. As for a plug, Pepsi bottle duct taped works as good.

    There's a guy on here K10somethingoranother that builds 208s with a fixed yoke. I don't know much about them, even though I do have a custom case with a fixed output. I can take a pic of it when I get home today to show the outer differences.
