poor mans sye.

Alright, so I know my idea isn't a perfect solution, but if it works till I can afford to do something HD I'd be happy. Does the front output yoke on the np231 have the same spline count and size as the rear output shaft that I could do a really poor mans hack-n-tap SYE and then have a front shaft shortened and balanced to use in the rear? I'm thinking that if I can do this I can have an SYE and cv shaft for around $150. Again, not a permanent solution, but one that would allow me to get it taken care of for now and let me put my tummy tuck on and upgrade later. TIA

I know a lot of people who have sucessfully installed and used the Rubicon Express hack-n-tap, to include myself about 4 Jeeps ago. My disclaimer is that the one I did it on was a YJ 4 banger, although I think that it would work just fine with a 4.0 as well. If you have the skills to fabricate it then why not?

A fixed yoke with a driveshaft is only part of the equation, you still need adjustable control arms to get your pinion nose up for the cv driveshaft to work properly.

Already taken care of, I have all 8 arms replaced.

Does anyone know of any yoke that will fit onto a 231 rear shaft?

231 SYE yoke part number 3103-27CV

http://www.sixstates.com/products/pa...part=3103-27CV+


Any shop that does drive-line work or transfer case work should have one or be able to order one.

The 3103-27CV is used for Hack & Tap SYE's with a double cardan drive shaft. Just Google it.

Also found this in my searching, and think that it's a possibility it could work...but then again, I'm looking at a lot of different mixing and matching, and I might just go with the IRO hack-n-tap kit after all of this because it's only $200 and comes with a remanned dc shaft.
