Does an 03 Rubi have a slip yoke?

I have heard some say they dont have a slip yoke, and some say they do. I am wondering if it was different for certain years.

Rubi's dont have CV style driveshafts, they have double cardan shafts from the factory. However, the NV241OR t-case has a flange output in the rear and no slip yoke.

This is a photo of my rubi's tcase with an aftermarket HAD CV driveshaft. The tcase output is factory stock.



It is relatively easy to replace the flange with a yoke if desired.

So, if you get a vibration with a lift you can jsut replace the shaft as opposed to a tcase drop. Is that correct?

I don't think any TJ comes from the OEM with a rear double cardan shaft. The Rubicon comes with a single U joint at each end of the driveshaft and no slip yoke...

That and adjustable control arms to correct the pinion angle...

The Rubicon 241 Tcase doesn't have a slip yoke to eliminate and the stock rear drive shaft is nothing but a plain old u-joint. The front is a CV shaft, not the rear.
