A style of sye that doesn't replace the slip yoke with a fixed. Instead you cut and drill, and tap the end of the slip yoke to bolt on a fixed converting it.

They work fine you don't have to pull the transfer case. Been running one for about 10 years most of the time with 36" swampers.

So Im a little confused... you DONT need to do anything on the T-Case? Just swap out the driveshaft? Does it cure vibes?

The instructions for the Hack and tap actually have you pull the transfer case output shaft then cut in tap it. I actually cut mine while it was still in the transfer case with a cut off wheel. The reason the hack and tap is not as strong as a regular SYE is because you drill and tap a hole for a bolt to hold the plate on.

Thanks, I was wondering why they were cheaper than a regular style sye kit.

I pulled the driveshaft cut the output shaft and tapped with it on the vehicle then replaced the driveshaft. It's very simple to do all you need is a few hand tools, drill and a 4.5" grinder with a cut off wheel.
