    That is the question....
    Going to a CV rear shaft. Should I go ahead and convert to fixed yoke now, or just rebuild the transfer case, and run a slip yoke CV shaft? /forums/images/graemlins/1zhelp.gif

    The build up includes a 60/14/detroit install, crossover, WTO hydro, and CV shaft/ transfer case rebuild (241c)

    I would do neither for a 4" lift. I'd fix your driveshaft angle problem so you don't have vibes.

    Later on down the road, find yourself a 205 with fixed yoke, but for now, leave it alone.

    i dont see the terible problem whith slip yokes. I say they are good enough untill you have the cash to upgrade.

    That's because your LUV and your TTB are enough to you until you have to upgrade. Anyone that is happy with a setup like that would have much bigger things to complain about than a slip yoke transfer case.
