    I've been searching but haven't found any definite answers. Most of what I found says that the slip yokes are worse for lifted trucks because it lets the angleof the driveline change. What's the main difference between the two? Advantage/disadvantage? I have an 80 NP205 which I'm assuming is stock so it's a slip yoke. What's a rough price for the conversion?

    no idea on the conversion price... might be cheaper to just swap in a regular np205. Slip yokes are no good... last thing ya need when wheel'in is to have your driveshaft pull out of ur tcase and the tcase fluid to puke on the ground.
