1310 or 1330 u joints

Well, ordering my cv DS. Talked the the place I am buying from and I am going with a 1310 on the transfer case side and 1330 on the axle (ford 8.8) side. I was told the 1310 is for 1/2 ton and 1330 is 3/4 ton which is stronger.

Did anyone else do this?

Sure, plenty of folks have 2 different rear drive shaft ujoints. Some stock YJ's have this as well.

In the case of the stock ones being 1310 & 1330, there is a different yoke on the D35 which calls for a 1330.

If you have the correct sized yoke flange adapter on the 8.8, you can run the 1330.

There are other combo's out there which call for 1310/1330 combo ujoints with 2 sides of the ujoint are 1310's and the other 2 ends are 1330 (hench - a combo ujoint).

Rep said it's direct bolt-on. So, it's 1330 on the ford 8.8 flange and 1310 on the TC side. I could go 1310 on both. But, 1330 is stronger.

Sounds like that's what I will do. 1310 on TC and 1330 on axle

the 1330 and the 1310 have the same cap size but the 1330 has a larger cross. I have broken more 1330's then i have 1310's so unless you are going to 1350 or 1410 i wouldnt worry about it just make it work. you can get diffrent companion flanges from ford for a 1310 joint or get a conversion joint from napa.

Rep said it's direct bolt-on. Nothing needed (adapter). Not true?

Already ordered the 1330 and 1310

i have an 8.8, but it has a regular yoke instead of the flange (yoke is from a stang)

1310 up top, and 1330 at the axle. and it just bolted on.... never had a single issue.

Good to hear. I got the driveshaft ($249) here Wholesale Reed's Offroad Kids Quads Jeep Driveshafts Rock Crawler Bumpers Vehicle HID kits because they been in business so long. I will post pics as soon as I install it. I think I made the right choice.

That's good to know.

I wonder if all 8.8 yokes are interchangeable? Like from a truck too?

It would be a better solution instead of the adapter flange.

I assume the builder is just putting a different yoke on?

i just did the 8.8 swap. I have my stock driveshaft to the stock Ford driveshaft flange. You can get a 1310 to 1330 U joint. I just used a stock 1977 ford index ujoint. as its the same thing... I didnt wanna have to order the spicer adapter or special u joints as if i break one id be screwed on trail.

I did call and they said no adapters. They are using a different yoke. So, hopefully the Rep is right. It's a 1330 not a 1310/1330 in the rear.

there wouldnt probably be anything wrong with the flange, but i was missing the adapter yoke (or whatever its called) and happened to have a buddy with a yoke that fit, so i went that route. plus its easier to work with IMO. and yes it has u bolts.

Just my

If you have the option of going with either 1310 or 1330, go with 1310 for the strength over the 1330 (what I've been told and it seems to concur with post #4 but correct me if I'm wrong) and the fact that if you have a choice of running the same size u-joints on the entire rig, carry one or two spares of the same size and no matter what u-joint breaks, you have a compatible replacement.

This was the thinking behind my build with the choice to go with 1310's all the way through from front to rear.

They look the same. How do I tell the difference Also no bolts for the TC to connect. What size are those?
