Tranfercase Question!

So the PO of my jeep replaced the 231 in my 95' to rebuild it. He put a cherokee tranfercase in it as a replacement. I was going to put a SYE conversion on the rebuilt one and swap it out. But the cherokee 231 works really well and i noticed it has a CV joint? Is it essentially the same as a SYE kit? So i wouldnt need one when i do my lift? Only a driveshaft right?

Cherokee uses CV on front driveshaft, not on rear.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.

Whatcha have there is the stock single U-Joint setup... not a "CV" which has 2 u-joints.

Here is a "CV" joint.
(Technically it's not a CV joint, it's actually a double cardan joint but is frequently referred to as a CV joint)

FSJ's with the quadratrac system used a double cardin up front because it was full time 4wd. Hence the term constsant velocity or CV joint. It is A CV joint in that respect.
