JeepCrawler98 Slip Yoke Eliminator - it changes the slip yoke driveshaft on the rear of the Jeep and replaces it with a double cardon (aka CV) style shaft. It lengthens the shaft a few inches, and the CV joint allows for much harsher angles. The output shaft is upgraded as well to a heavier unit (unless you do a hack and tap).

A SYE reduces driveline angles, driveline vibes (which WILL kill your pinion and output shaft bearings if ignored, and can crack your t-case), and beefs up the overall assy from the output shaft on back to the pinion yoke.

Yeah ford explorers have the 8.8

The transfercase in TJ's is a NP-231 - Chrysler uses these in v8 applications (Dodge Ram 1500s and such) so I would think it would be ok. Just make sure you put in a bigger input shaft and I would recommend a wide chain upgrade. If you're gonna shorten the rear drive shaft ANY, or lift the jeep any - with the extra power an SYE is a MUST.

debruins it seems like you want to upgrade stuff so i would get a 4 cyl. they are less exensive, youll have to upgrade the tranny anyway, and you can put in a ford 8.8 for a round 700-1000 whihc i stronger than the D44 anyway

naterg well... for one, I am almost 95% sure that all 4 cyl. came with the d30 fron d35 rear axles... which you will DEFINITELY want to upgrade if you are to drop in a SBC. Transmission will probably want to be changed too...
