    Does making the yoke shorter make the shaft stick further in to where the u joint will be?

    Yes, but the super short sye from jb conversions uses a really short yoke. I have to shorten it to be able to get thread engagement for the yoke nut. The new yoke is about 1/2" longer from the start of the splines than the old yoke. I'll still need to take it to work and turn it on the lathe. The sealing portion diameter is about .070" wider and will have to lengthen the sealing portion to .750".

    All the machining is done on the transfer case rear output yoke. Everything fits nice and tight. New drive shaft is in. The next nice day I'll take it outside and make sure the transmission works after it was rebuilt at home.

    Great work. I've been following your build, and you have a good one in the works. It's great you have the skills and tools to do all the things you show.

    Looking at the driveshaft pic, have you checked how much spline engagement you will have left at full droop?
    It could be the angle of the picture, but it looks like the control arms are longer than the driveshaft, so it will stretch as it drops.

    Thank you. I had the same concern. I lifted the rear end until I was at full droop and still had spline engagement. There is 8" of splines there. If there turns out to be not enough, I'll shorten my control arms an inch or two.

    Typically doesn't the DS shorten when the axle droops?

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
