    I installed my 14bff today expecting it to compensate for the 1" the 4" lift caused the driveshaft to pull out of the transfer case. Well, wrong, the yoke is now 2" out of the transfer case over what it was stock. Why did this happen? I still have about 4" still in the housing (241) I don't wheel this 'burb, but I do tow with it, should I have a new shaft made?

    Well, I was wrong,there is only 2 1/2" in the transfer case now. I just hate to spend $200 on a driveshaft.

    Why don't you just have it lengthen or buy mine. I have the rear shaft out of my 90 burb when it had 8" lift. You would probably need to shorten the driveshaft. It was connected to a 465/241 and 14ff. Shipping would probably kill the deal unless you want to pick it up. I sometimes go to Gulfport so that might be 1/2 way. PM me if you are interested.

    I didn't get mine lengthened, i wheel mine all the time, flex it out pretty good as well, never had an issue with the driveshaft coming out.

    to add: it's the same setup you have, mine's an '89
