    Need a driveshaft made to go between my 14 bolt and my 205 which both have fixed yokes. I know my DS needs some kind of travel, so do I need some type of slip yoke on my DS? Anyone have any pics of a rear DS with this kinda setup?

    If it has both fixed yokes, then the DS will have to have a slip yoke in the DS, so that it can move in an out for travel. I can get you a pic outta my truck but mines on a 203, but the DS set up still has fixed yokes, with the slip yoke in the DS.

    the slip will look just like the one for the front shaft. but for bigger joints and tube.

    this is for my 4l80-e with 205 fixed yoke to 14ff with 1350 joints on both.

    That's sweet...where did you get it and what is the proper way to measure between the transfer case and rear end?

    Center of u-joint cap to center of u-joint cap is how I've been instructed to do it. Thats from t-case yoke to pinion yoke without a shaft in place.

    like above but dont forget full weight of truck to get the proper spec. that shaft is thick wall tube and spicer ends and joints new series all from my local shop. about 200-225 for that style shaft. the slip is the most. this is the long one.
