    i am wanting a one ton rear driveshaft. i guess i need to a cv driveshaft to eliminate vibrations and i plan to put a sye kit on my np241 so i would need a two peice. also i still have my 10 bolts so dont they make a hybrid u-joint that will work on that. is there anything else i need because i want to do it right the first time.

    Yes, they do make a hybrid u-joint, it's at Napa, part # 447.

    And, who's opinion on doing it right? Some would think it's okay to have a slip yoke CV. Others think that a slip yoke eliminator is worth the money. To me, the only way to fly is to swap in a better transfer case to begin with that already has a fixed yoke (and since that leaves only 205 or 203, you'll end up with a stronger case in the end anyway).
