Run a conversion joint? or switch the yoke?

What should I do? Which is better?

Should I switch the yoke on my Dana 60 to a 1330 to match the stock Ford Driveshaft U joint.

Or

Run a 1330 to 1350 U joint?

My thinking is U joints wear out, the 1330-1350 is pricey and the 1330 yoke is a one time expense.

I dont know if there are any strength differences I know the width is the same I think its just cap size.

why not look for a flange-type yoke? I've considered getting D44 yoke to toyota driveshaft flange adapters... about $100 each, but then I don't have to worry about silly driveshaft yokes.

to answer your question though, I think the 1350 joints are stronger... any way you can get a driveshaft to match that 1350 joint?
