    Can someone get me a mesurement of how far your slip yoke extends out from the seal on the t-case?

    Here's what mine looks like after the lift and all:

    I was thinking it should be an inch or so closer to the t-case, but I forgot to measure it before the lift and swap.

    No problem. That may be the only advantage of a slip yoke. It can extend out a good amount with no adverse effects. Just make sure there is still a good amount engaging the output shaft. That is about what mine looks like right now, and I have had the rear axle at full droop.

    I think mine might stick out a little farther than that but not much.

    I measured my 208 from the seal to the backside of the slipyoke and got 3'' when it was stock. After an ORD shackle flip and 1 1/2'' block I ended up with 3 1/4''. I'm not saying this is "normal" but it's what I got /forums/images/icons/wink.gif

    Im no expert, but I have always been told that 1.5-2" is the optimum range.
