Hack N Tap seal??

my TJ is at the shop right now getting the rear output shaft seal replaced. When he got it all torn down and pulled out the seal it didnt match the new seal he had ordered. The seal he ordered was an oem jeep part. so my question is:

1 is there more than one company that makes a hack n tap?

2 where can i get a bigger seal?

The hack 'n tap doesn't change the transfer case output shaft, it just cuts length off it. It sounds like the shop ordered the wrong transfer case output shaft seal.

You think Six States Distributors ordered the wrong seal? its the seal that goes over the plate that slides onto the shaft if that makes any sense

Im seriously contemplated just using this excuse and have them install an AA sye kit right now. any idea what labor cost would be? is a hack n tap even reliable? can i use my same tom woods driveline?

RE's Hack 'n Tap is very reliable, afterall it makes use of the transfer case's OE output shaft. I kinda doubt the length would be identical after converting to a SYE so the TW driveshaft length might have to be slightly changed which is easy enough.

If the shop even knows what they are doing I doubt they would charge less than 3-4 hours of labor to install a SYE kit... that's probably $210 to 280 using typical rates.

I would keep the Hack 'n Tap. As already said above, if the seal they got doesn't fit, someone screwed up. The output shaft seal doesn't get changed when installing RE's Hack 'n Tap.

Hack-n-tap is just a term, not a registered product name or anything.

I'm pretty sure some one screwed up some where and ordered the wrong seal. Or the wrong one got put in the box.

Since when did Currie start selling a hack 'n tap? I've never heard of one sold by them or seen one on their website.

It's an SYE of sorts, but it's a flange like on a Rubicon TJ.

That flange is required for a CV driveshaft, the CV end of the driveshaft needs it to bolt up to it.

No, but that's the only Currie one that sounded like what he was describing.
