    I have a NP208 with the slip yoke and have been looking for a way to get rid of it. I found a website driveshaftsuperstore.com, that sells a "flange" that looks like it slides over the factory output shaft in the slipyoke and on the other end is the flange with predrilled holes for a cv driveshaft or others. But it says to drill and tap a hole in the center of the existing output shaft to bolt the flange in place. Is this okay or will it weakin the shaft????? If not it looks like a good idea. I know it wouldn't allow me to add alot of length to my driveshaft but I could get one with more joints.

    Been covered before here on CK5 . The majority thinks drilling the output shaft makes it weaker . I do not know if anyone has done it , and given a long term report on it .

    Although I have no experience with the shop, some here have had a bad time with that shop.

    Sorry I'm still kinda new. Well if the guys on here don't think it is a good idea and have had bad experience with this company, then that's good enough for me. Thanks!

    That is commenly called a hack and tap saw one done on a full size with 44s and a built 454. He had been running like that for about 4 years with no problems. I also have some freinds with Jeeps that have done the same thing. No relability problems with theirs either.
