Just curious...BTW I have a 4" susp lift and 3" body lift, how does this play into the situation?
slip yokes SUCK!!!!!!!!! Three main reasons... they dont allow very much travel in your rear suspension for one thing. If your rigs rear is too flexy, you can easily pull the slip yoke right out of the case. secondly, when that shafts comes out... joy of joys... your tcase fluid starts leaking out the gapping hole left by the shaft! weeee!!! Lastly, because it doesnt accept a flange for a standard CV shaft to connect too you have to either get a driveline shop to make you a trick shaft if you want a cv or live with driveline vibe problems. a trick shaft is more $ and in the end not as strong as a HAD setup (for example). Some reputable shops that make HD drivelines wont even make a HD cv shaft that will work on a slip yoke. If a driveline pro doesnt trust the design... i dont either.
can you tell i dont like slip yokes yet? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif thats cause I still have one!!!! Gah. Tomorow I (finally!!!! /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif) drop off the parts for my np205 swap... i CANT WAIT until that god forsaken 208 is out of my rig. Its been a headache since the day I got my jimmy.
I'm so glad I ditched mine!
