I don't have the transmission or transfer case yet. lol. Been focused on the body lift so I don't rip my flares off.

I do have a rear driveshaft on the way though.

Transmission and transfer case are up next after the body lift. Finding a driveshaft had me worried. The transmission and t-case are the easy parts.

You can always get a custom shaft done. I remember a lot of hybrid shafts being made back in the day on rf. Some good info on it over there.

Nevermind. I thought you were talking about the front. I need to read more.

lol, I've got the front shaft for a propeller style transfer case. But if I find an older 1354M, then I'll have to find a shaft from a 95-96 Explorer so I can have U-Joints on both sides. Shouldn't be too hard either way.

Part of the reason I refuse to go with a 1350 is because I don't want to deal with custom shafts.

It is a pain for sure. Better to try and stay away from it if possible

I always hated trying to match up U-Joints for all the mud trucks when I worked at Advance.

I shipped my old bed rails in a box about the same size. They were confused, but they took it.
