This is my first project truck so any help will be appreciated thank you.

    I would swap out the slip yoke for a fixed yoke if it was mine. Other than that I can't help you out much.

    You dont have to but I would. You will need to find another case to rob the yoke out of, or find another case thats fixed already.
    Do you have any lift? If so, it depends on how much lift you have and where your pinion is pointing.
