Tom Wood JK 1310 Front Drive Shaft - Short
Often referred to as a Slip Yoke Eliminator (SYE) fixed yoke kit, short shaft kit or tail shaft conversion. This kit does not actually eliminate a slip yoke but rather moves it to a different part of the dive train. On the original application the provision for compression and extension of the drive shaft is a function of both the drive shaft slip yoke and the out-put shaft on the transfer case. After the conversion, this provision for compression and extension becomes a function of the drive shaft only.
You will then have a drive shaft that is longer than stock which will reduce joint angles and the ability to use a Constant Velocity (CV) double cardan type drive shaft. This will reduce driveshaft vibrations for smoother operation and a longer life on the related components.
With this conversion you should be able to keep the transfer case at stock height. You will however, want to be sure to pitch the differential so the pinion points more or less directly at the out-put of the transfer case, maintaining a minimal joint angle at the differential end. Any of these conversions will give you a fixed yoke/flange on the rear out-put of the transfer case.
All of these conversions are offered as a complete package that includes everything required to modify the transfer case along with our high quality CV drive shaft. This drive shaft will be built to fit your vehicle and is not a "universal fit" drive shaft. Once you’ve decided which kit you want.
