    Have an 88 blazer with 6 in lift. Just finished swapping in a 14sf. Looks like Im going to have to shorten the drive shaft a smidge. Was wondering how much yoke or do I need coming out of the back of the transfercase?

    Not quite sure what you're asking. But I'd go w/ a fixed yoke conversion for the 208 and get a custom CV drive shaft w/ 1350 u-joints. Since you got the 9.5" rear no point stayin w/ the tiny 1/2ton 1310 u-joints. I'm guessing that 6" lift has aleast 35s under it. I used to powder my 1310 u-joints w/ 31s underneath.

    Yikes!! Sorry. I think I stuck my foot in my mouth. The conversions were all 205s (since they came w/ fix yoke in the earlier years). The only conversion kits other than that I found were for Jeep NP231s. I also read an article in 4wheel & Off-road talking about the increasing popularity of the aluminum cased chain driven t-cases and the increase in after market mods availibity, but they didn't give any names. So again, my bad! Later -Tommy

    Sure had my attention! If someone comes out with a reliable conversion kit my transfer case is coming apart.
