Hey guys, I've got a question about my rear driveshaft. I'm needing a shaft that is real close to 15" running length.... A stock length yj shaft for a auto tranny is 14-7/8" running length... Do you guys think I could run that shaft??? I've got a buddy with a parts jeep yj, with an auto tranny. Said I could have the shaft..... But want to mk sure it will work

Not sure on the answer for your question, but I have a question for you. What is the part number for the radiator hoses your running? or what application were they originally for?

I've actually robbed some hoses off of the truck I had bought to do my swap. I robbed two hoses off the truck, the I just cut off the xtra length I didn't need.
The only other option I had found was to get some universal/custom cut to length hose. But it was expensive. So I took the cheap route for now. Lol

Try the shaft, but you need to measure from the center of the rear yoke up to the tail housing, then add the length for the slip yoke of how far it sticks inside.

That's how I had measured first, which gave me my 17.500" length.
Then I called to have a shaft built here locally, an they told me to measure ctr-ctr of Ujoint caps. Which factory is 13.250", and my need is 1.500"-1.625" longer. The factory auto tranny shaft is 14.875" running length. So I'm thinkn that it will b pretty dam close!!! Got my fingers crossed!!! We will find out tomorrow after work as my new shaft will b waiting when I get home!!!!

Well just about got the inside of my jeep just about wrapped up, just need to order a new brake light switch an wire it up, an the electrical will be complete!!! I do have a feeling that the ol 35 rear end prob won't hold up too long, but I think ill just swap in an 8.8. Besides a few wires to hide an my speedo to hook up an program, I'm 97% done!!! It's well worth all the time and money!!!!

Did you switch to a pump for a Chevy or a factory jeep jump?

I switched to a jeep in tank pump. I used the pump for a 91 wrangler.... It is a direct fit into my tank. So far so good...... It has plenty of flow for my needs.... But my v8 is a stock 95 TBI....

I recommend Novak they made my 6.0 swat seem less motor mounts are solid and the transfer case adapter as well. I pulled a 6.0 motor from a 2000 Yukon Denali and the trans off of an 85 Chevy Blazer) set the computer to manual trans) in this case and kept the NP321 T-case off my YJ it's a very very simple swap. You can get gauges from Autometer or their cheaper version Auto Gauge and will work great. Biggest issue I ran into was alining the t-case out put to the front diff it's just a matter of olaying with the engine location. We set up the engine about an inch to the right from the center. It been running perfectly fine for about a year and a half. Like all these guys say, take your time and do your homework.

That looks good , I'm considering scrapping my idea and going this rout. Did you go with the 4-speed manual trans ? And do you know if I could use the 700r4 auto if my wife decides she don't want to shift gears...
Good Job..

95' with 05' Motor and trans,,,
