Is it possible to get a bigger yoke for a AMC 20?

This is the 8th time ive put u joints in my rear driveshaft within 6,000 miles so my question is, could i get a bigger yoke like the ones on a dana 70 and put it on my AMC 20? Also could i get one for a NP 208 transfer case?
Thanks!

I don't know but it would only mask the problem. What is happening to your u joints that you have to replace them so often?

No profile information but judging by your profile pic you have a substantial lift. You should be addressing the pinion angles of your driveshaft, not trying to increase the size of the u-joints.

I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.

The angles match up and i know i should probably get the driveshaft 2 inches longer but i mostly drive it on the road and they get busted out. The needles break in half and then the driveshaft starts flopping around. Maybe its just to short and that's the problem, im not really sure though.

Take a pic and lets see. I'm guessing that if your lift has made your driveshaft 2" longer then your angles are too extreme and putting too much stress on your u-joints.
