That is interesting! I have a uni on the pinion end and a cv on the t-caseend with my Hemi and mine doesn't come out without unbolting the crossmember. Iplan to take the spare shaft I have in and have it modified like yours on thet-case end with a double cardan and also have them put a slip in it so it willcompress enough to be removed if need be. You said you had the adapter speciallymade? I was hoping there would be something out there already that would work.Any chance I could trouble you for one?!

That sucks about the brake lines! I wonder why they did that?

Does yours not have a slip joint under the concertina plastic cover? If they put a slip joint the same length as the rear shaft noone would have any problems!

My shaft was cut down down and had the Cardan welded onto the end, and they machined the flange on the cardan to match the tcase pattern. Not just as simple as an adaptor sorry!

Oh I see, thanks. I have a slip in mine but it is on the t-case side. It would get cut off when the cardan goes in, so they would have to add a new one at the same time.

Any chance our t-case end is similar to anything the JK uses? That would make things easier!
