    hey guys, i need to take my rear driveshaft off to lengthen it. so far i have the rear part disconnected from the axle. what do i have to do for the part that is connected to the transfer case? (its a np208) can i just pull the slip yoke out still connected to the driveshaft and take it to get lengthed like that?

    sorry if my question sounds stupid, but i dunno what to do??

    thanks for the help in advance

    FIXED IT ---- :D

    all i can add is you will need to top off the 208 after you put in you longer drive shaft

    i think 2qts will come out of the 208 when you pull the yoke out get a oil pan under it


    good luck :D
