Slip Yoke Eliminator (SYE) Kits Overview
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.
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.
If you have a Cherokee or a non-stock differential, you need to confirm joint size at differential end.
|As an overview, (assuming you have the 231 transfer case) the
options and prices are as follows:
All of the above use a new main shaft for the transfer case which is larger/stronger than the stock main shaft and no core is required.

With the XB configuration, we will use a heavy rubber boot which is banded down with stainless steel banding to seal all of the contaminates out and keep the grease in. The XC configuration uses the same slip yoke & spline stub but instead of using the rubber boot, we drill and tap the slip yoke for a grease fitting and use a dust cap which has convolutions that follow the spline stub for sealing. We consider the XB configuration to be the longest lasting and best value.

Note: Most drive
shafts shown in photos are polished and clear coated, this finish adds
$25 the cost. We only recommend the polish & clear coat for show
vehicles or very dry climates.
