Extra work may be required

The bell housing was cast incorrectly. After little to no support from the manufacturer, I had to fix it. I had to grind away material from the inside of the bell housing to get the transfer case to work properly. Apparently I just got a bad one. I was not pleased that I had to do extra work on a brand new part. I'm just glad I checked it out before re-installing in the vehicle.

Asked by nacy newbie from on

Hi Nacy, This Rugged Ridge NP 231 Slip Yoke Eliminator Kit works great on the YJ Wranglers but its usually needed on kits 4" or higher. You'll also need the CV style driveshaft for it, here's the link and thanks for the inquiry. http://www.4wd.com/Drivetrain-Differential/CV-Style-Drive-Shaft.aspx?t_c=12&t_s=515&t_pt=4925&t_pn=EXP4040

I have a 1995 YJ Sahara. It has a 3.5 inch lift and I am installing 35 inch tires. The transfer case was lowered with spacers as part of the lift kit installation and I would like to move it back up to its original position. Do I need this kit to accomplish that. Anything else I would need? (FYI I am doing some minor body mods and front wheel spacers to accommdate the larger tires.) Thanks.

Hi Az-YJ the Rugged Ridge NP231 Slip Yoke Eliminator Kit will put it back at the stock hight but you will need to install this then measure for a drive shaft and order a custom drive shaft for the jeep. If you have any other questions feel free to ask. Thanks,

Are there any SYE kits for the TJ NP231 that have 1330 yokes instead of the 1310? I have a cv driveshaft but its set up for 1330 u joints

Asked by Josh from Denver on

Hello Josh, With these slip yoke eliminators you will have to use the 1310 joint, we do not have a setup with the 1330. If you have anymore questions feel free to ask, Thank you.
