Icon4 Front output yoke

Does anyone know if I can swap my flat flange front output yoke from my existing electric t-case to the 1990 Bronco 2 1350 I just bought. It has the u joint looking one.

Basically can I use my stock driveshaft by swapping yokes?

I need to know by Friday because if I can swap the yokes I will keep it.

If not I need to return it by tomorrow.

i dont think so, because the cv cone end is part of the shaft and i dont think the u-joint one is...just use a 96~00 explorer front shaft and be done with it

x2!



The only way I see swapping the outputs to be beneficial is if you've got the expensive superlift shaft and are swapping in a manual non-fx4 1354 and want to continue to use that shaft. If you've still got a stock shaft and are putting in a 97 and older 1354, just do 95-97 Expo front shaft. ....AND it's an upgrade and you can run it with the Superlift or RCD kit.

I'm in the middle of doing that right now actually. lol. I still need to remove the front output yoke from the old school 1354 in order to remove the shaft itself from the housing. The bearings both look the same to me. That yoke takes a WEIRD sized socket....like a super super thin wall 32mm or something.
