Yep, you got it right.

One of the popular reasons to go this route is the relatively inexpensive costs vs buy a new custom made CV from a driveline shop.

If done correctly, the XJ shaft cut down will work pretty well for most folks.

I used my 220V MillerMatic 175 MIG with a CO2/Argon mix tank.

Welder left - plasma cutter right. Plasma is a Miller Spectrum 625.

As always Joe Thanks for the great write up & pictures. Now the wheels are turning in my head and I just found a XJ front shaft I forgot I had.

Here's some SYE info. Make sure to shop around.

AA Slip Yoke Eliminator for the Jeep NP231 Transfer Case

Advance Adapters 50-7906 - Advanced Adapters Drive Shaft Angle Reduction (Slip Yoke Eliminator) Kit for NP231 Transfer Case - Quadratec


The purpose is to allow for using a longer drive shaft, which helps with decreasing the angle.

I hear and see so many people call it a cv driveshaft when, correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't that transfer case end called a dc joint (double cardon)? I just want to make sure i havrnt been calling the wrong joint the wrong name this whole time, thanks!

you're right AND wrong

a double cardan joint is a TYPE of CV joint... CV stands for constant velocity

there's double cardan, birfield (sp?) and I think one or two other types
