8.8 yoke????

I am istalling an exporer 8.8 in my 95 yj. the yoke on the 8.8 is a different setup than on my jeep driveshaft. I have been told you can replace the yoke in the rarend with a new yoke from NAPA. I evenwas given a spicer part#(2-2-1379), but this does not match up. Can anyone please help?

I got the flange thing from a ford driveshaft when i bought my 8.8, I haven't installed my 8.8 yet, but it appears that the ujoint should fit fine inside of it. There is a picture of what it looks like on <a href="http://www.mountainoffroad.com/catalog/Mounting%20Hardware-Axle/Mounting%20Hardware.htm" target="_blank">this page</a>

Sorry, that didn't work. Try looking up key word "yankee toys". If that doesn't work try "mountain offroad". I think they have some info on this.

The yoke just bolts to the 8.8 flange after you have pressed the driveshaft U-joint into it. The final dimensions are so close to the D35 that your drive shaft will not need to be changed.
