    How long is the yoke?
    I did the 3/4 ton swap and now have and extra inch of yoke out of the tcase, and don't feel like pulling the drive shaft back out. /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif

    I just happened to have one in the back of my truck.

    From the center of the yoke (center of ujoint) to the end is 8.25 inches. This is from a 1987 208 if that makes a difference.

    If you are just talking about the portion that slides in the tcase it is 6 inches.

    You did a 3/4 ton swap and have MORE shaft out now? I cant honestly judge since when I did my swap I also lifted more, and did a 2in shackle flip but to look at the size of a 14 to a 10 the shaft should be IN more. (all other things being equal.) This is just an eyeball observation I never measured.

    For the first time ever.. I agree with you. /forums/images/graemlins/ignore.gif LOL You should have less sticking out... I had to shorten my driveline..

    I thought the same thing. I have 2" block lift, with the t-case dropped. I measured the 10 and 14 from axle tube center to yoke center, they are within a 1/2" of each other. The only thing I haven't done is check the driveline angles, the pinion is lower on the 14 is the only thing i can think of.
