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.

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

231 SYE yoke part number 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.
