A slip yoke eliminator elimiates the slip yoke <IMG SRC="/board/images/smilies/dunno.gif">

Actually the rear driveshaft in stock form has a end that slides into the tranny/t-case output. When the axle moves up and down, it lets the driveshaft lengthen and shorten at the tranny. Unfortunately if you over extend the slip yoke, it can fall out. It is also not as strong as a slip-yoke in the middle of the driveshaft.

An eliminator will convert the tranny/t-case to a fixed yoke (looks like the pinion yoke on an axle). This prevents the top end of the driveshaft from falling out. You should replace the driveshaft with one with a long travel slip system in the middle.

Correct me I'm wrong Jason, I believe when, if the slip yoke does seperate from the T-case (while wheeling ) that the T-case fluid can drain out as well?
I've heard of this happening on Wragler's off-road.
Something else to stink about huh?

Troy -

You are correct that the fluid can drain from teh tail housing. However, I am not sure how much will actually drain. When I pulle dmy shaft to change u-joints, less than a cup leaked out. Of course I wasn't driving it as if I had bent the rear shaft and removed going only in front wheel drive.
