ok, and the cherokee will have the slip joint that goes into the transfer-case or use the slip joint from the ranger shaft and where the u joint on the slip joint end to the front diff. use the cherokee shaft? because i have the BW 1350 with the slip joint in the transfer-case, not the 1354. any help would be great, thanks.

Ohhh I thought you had a yoke on the t case, and I figured the newer style you were talking about was the bowl style cv joint on the newer t case side. I have no info on any Slip joint shafts other then to take your completed swap into a driveline shop and they will piece together a shaft for you. Not very expensive either. In that case its usually cheaper to start with a shaft and have it modified, so use your shaft you have now and take it in to be modified

even better, find a slip joint shaft along with your stock unit, then they just gotta re-pipe it to length and balance it. probably a $100-$150 job

I don't know if it was ever mentioned, but a 1354 from an older Explorer or Ranger works great. Then use a 95-96 Explorer front DS and it all bolts up without modification.

When Justin and I did my swap, that's how we did it. Worked great and I beat it pretty hard at the Dunes without any issues at all.

Thanks man, I've been hooked up to the 1350 with a shortened b2 front shaft. I don't beat on it bad but the 4x4 works great for what I need it to do. Been about 3 or so years problem free (knock on wood)
