    What driveshaft length and setup do I need...I'm lost here..

    Dana 60 front
    14ff rear
    6inch rough country lift
    203 transfer case

    What do I need? Starting with the axle yoke to the transfer case....What do you have? I want to go CV in rear also. My current setup(stock) is too short.

    How about a little help here.

    There are probably numerous setups similar to yours, but IMHO do not rely on the measurements from someone else's rig to size your drive shafts. Install everything, measure the driveshafts and have the modified accordingly. If you are going to a cv from stock, it will have to be shortened to add the cv.

    i highly recommend bolting everything up and measuring. That said, when i went to order my driveshafts (i was dumb, ordered them before stuff was bolted up), i averaged the lengths from 4-5 peeps here on ck5 and compared that number with a rough guestimate after looking at the 205 in my garage and where the end of my 700r4 was. Rounded to the nearest inch and took a shot in the dark. I was very lucky that the shafts worked out for me. Anyway, dont be a bonehead like i was, bolt the stuff up, measure exactly how long they need to be, then call Jesse at HAD to get some of the best driveshafts you can buy.
