A Hack-And-Tap (HnT) is a style of slip yoke eliminator. You drill a hole in the end of your output shaft, tap for threads, and bolt a yoke to it. Now you have aslip yoke eliminator. do a search and you will find DOZENS of pages with pictures. Its the cheapest way to get a SYE.

I had no vibes after the lift (sitting around 4" in the rear) until i did my TC swap. I think I have them because I had my DS shortened a tad too much. I ONLY get vibes between 60-73ish if i'm on the gas, none what soever when coasting. That makes me think it's for sure the DS. But I dont wanna have to mess with it getting lengthened or anything. $200 and I will have no problems, besides, I plan on going higher....... with LA's!

Did an oil change, took off shock boots, replaces crappy rezeppa front drive shaft with an OEM ZJ U-Joint DS.
Also threw in a few random pics, tires and no boots. And a picture of my tucked exhaust.









I'M GETTING ROCK SLIDERS NEXT WEEK!

Did you just take off the CV yoke and put a U-Joint yoke on?

So you just threw it on without measuring the pinion preload or whatever you have to measure?

AFAIK, torque management was a 5.9 only thing.

I marked a spot on the top of the pinion nut and gave it a few zips with the impact so it was facing straight up again. I don't care if it's not perfect cause i'm swapping in a HP30 with 4.10's when i get the back re-geared. I just didn't want to have to deal with a broken front DS out on the trail like some "other" forum members. DS only cost me $25, plus a can of rustoleum.
