cherokee stock specs error

There is an error in the cherokee stock specs, didn't know where to post it

the early cherokee's did not have a double carden front driveshaft, they had a GKN style driveshaft this one slides in and out of the black cylinder,

it would be great if a note was attached about the limited amount of lift these can take as a warning to others(makes a very pronounced thumping/clicking sound, had to spend $175 to get a custom front shaft

t-case connection

Thanks. I'll update the post to show that information. What does "GKN" stand for? And what years had this type shaft?

Any XJ with the NP207 xfer case. I know it was the 4bangers up through 87 from experience. Don't know about the early V-6 2.8's.

I think all of them till 87 had this type (with 207 t-case), becuase there is no driveshaft that is a direct swap, you have to have them cut to length, and take a yoke of of a 231

not sure why it's called a GKN (manufacturer maybe) also seen it called somthing like HS? High-speed-something

to show the diff. in length
