Unless you had a bad rear seal, '97 and newer TJs don't leak from the output shaft area when the rear driveshaft is removed. That is only a trait of '95 and older YJ 231 transfer cases.

Also what is the difference between a slip yoke and a slip-joint splined output shaft?
The 231 has a built-in oil pump that lubes everything, it isn't splash-lubed.

The OE output shaft has a splined slp-joint that the female-end of the OE driveshaft fits over. An aftermarket CV driveshaft that is installed after a SYE kit is installed which replaces that slip joint with a yoke or flange, has the slip-joint at the mid-point of the driveshaft instead.

rjdriver I drove without mine after I did the sye install On the replacement nose piece there is a garlock seal that the output shaft extends through. Here is a video if you want to see how it works this one is from Teraflex but you'll get the jist.

rjdriver Thanks Jerry for the clarity....... I don't need to worry anymore as mine is all back together ...... done front to back lockers on both and 4.88's, sye and drive shaft, Rokman control arms, straightened up spring perches in the back adjusted bump stops.....hopefully I won't have to go under it for a while now....... You were a lot of help in my decision on this. Sorry for the hijack

Jerry Bransford The front Dana 30 is more than strong enough for this usage, don't worry about that 50:50 split of how much the D30 typically gets offroad.

rjdriver I have been driving on mine for the last 2 months (after I changed the gears up front) until I got around to changing the rear axle and drive shaft with no problems although in my case with a Dana 30 I was genital with it because typically the front drive shaft in 4 wheel drive will have no more than 50% power diverted to it but when you have the rear shaft removed it has all the power diverted to it ........ and no leaks......

turnbull How do you keep the transfer case from leaking once you pull the rear yoke out?

Redsand Ya you can. I did it for a month or so and drove on the highway everyday at speed with no issues

driving w/o rear shaft

I have a 2004 Sport, and I was just wondering if it is at all possible to remove the rear driveshaft and drive in 4H without the TC leaking. I have 6" lift but no SYE/CV shaft yet (long story) and no money to get them. I'm not sure if I will have the $ by the end of summer, so I am trying to avoid another driveshaft failure until I can get the proper parts for the rear.
