Tj sbc swap---sye question
I have a 99 tj---just bolted up a built 305 sbc, with a nv4500 and a np241c transfer case. Now my problem is my rear driveshaft is only goin to be about a foot long from yoke to yoke. If I instal a sye kit on the 241 will that get me back to stock driveshaft length? I don't have a stock driveshaft to use to measure it. I'm hoping the sye will solve my problem but I'm not sure. I know somebody else has done this so help a brother out if you know anything about it!
JB conversions has a Super Short SYE looks like you'd gain 9 inches and you'd be fine. If not the next move is to stretch the rear.

Ya its the Chevy tcase when i first read it i thought the same thing but its the truck tcase and has a long output shaft.
Yea it's out of a 3/4 ton Chevy. Thanks for the help. I was planning on buying the super short one from jb conversions. Does anybody have a idea on how long a stock driveshaft is? And does a stock driveshaft have a slip yoke/cv joint or whatever you would call it?
The SYE is easy but the Full circle clips are a pain the auto store pliers won't do it. I had to put my jeep on hold for a week after i trashed two of the auto zone cheapos, i found a nice pair of c clip pliers in my Grandpa's old toolbox and the rest was smooth sailing. So before you start make sure to buy a nice pair of c clip pliers, make sure to pry the case apart on the designated points, and take your time and it'll go fine.
