To get rid of the t-case drop you'd still need a driveshaft & some upper adjustable control arms to adjust the pinion.

The fixed flange DOES make this much easier since you don't have to modify the t-case. The driveshaft upgrade just bolts right up.
i have a dc rear drive shaft in my rubi....

Another Rubi option that was not mentioned here is the Rubi also has 4 wheel disc brakes. Small but significant...
