Slip Yoke Elimination????

Please pardon my ignorance.

Id like to have a general discussion on the topic, for learning purposes.

What are reasons to do it?

Pros and cons?

Kits: good, bad, stay away from.

Have you done it, or considering it?

Drive shaft length, does it require a special length shaft vs an already purchased stock length?

Etc Etc.


Edit: its time to upgrade me rear DS, and Im wondering if I should consider SYE at the same time.
I know almost nothing on the topic, and only thought about it after looking at/for a rear DS.

SYE are great for closing off the t-case. TJ's were a better benefit to have.It put the slider on the shaft,in turn allowing for more travel. all your adjustment for travel is then on the shaft and not on the t-case output.I ran the crown kit with the shaft included.If you don't get a shaft you will need to have one made up or ordered for the SYE. The JK's shaft has a slip yoke built into the shaft. The downfall of the JK shaft is the joint at the t-case. Better off to change the shaft to a conventional style u-joints/double cardone.

Thank you both.

These responses do 3 things.

1)solve my dilemma

2)prove my ignorance

3) eliminate my slip yoke ignorance.
Im still pretty ignorant in multiple areas.

Thanks again.

Lol

But the statement did make me realize that my DSs have room to move.

Im not the sharpest knife in the drawer but it m not the one the wife used as a screwdriver either.

Cheers.
