      • Slip Yoke Eliminator Kit
      • Reinforced 356-T6 Aluminum
      • Provides Stronger U-Bolt Connection Point
      • Designed for Lifted Wranglers
      • Replaces Slip Yoke with Fixed CV-Style Yoke
      • Includes Speed Sensor
      • 5-Year Warranty
      • For NP231 Transfer Cases
      • Designed for the 1988-2006 Wrangler YJ & TJ Models


      Mega Short Design. Made from reinforced T6 aluminum, the Rugged Ridge Mega Short Slip Yoke Eliminator kit is designed to convert your NP231 transfer case to a fixed-yoke CV driveshaft connection. The mega short design provides room for a longer driveshaft to reduce the drive line angle and preventing bind and vibrations from larger lifts. Plus, it offers a stronger driveshaft connection point, allowing you to enjoy some serious off-roading, without worrying about snapping your driveshaft.

      Construction. This part is designed with strength in mind for the lifted Wranglers. Going from a slip yoke to the fixed CV connection prevents broken driveshafts and U-joints. A new speed sensor is also included to prevent speed miscalculation. There are many parts included in the kit, all provide high quality and performance over stock.

      Application. This kit is designed for the 1988-2006 Jeep Wrangler YJ and TJ models equipped with the NP231 transfer case. Lift application applies to suspension lifts only as body lifts do not require drive line corrections.

        Such a great idea.

        This is a good idea for lessening the angle of you rear shaft. Buckle this with a cv driveshaft and now you can go even higher (or articulate more) without worry. Rock on.

        Yoke eliminator

        This product was overall an amazing product. Well worth the money spent. Easy straight forward install using the all color large print directions. I would recommend this product to any one. Only reason I gave four star is I'm not sure how I feel about the new style speed sensor. Other than that super pleased.

        I should've bought this sooner.

        Been running with a drop kit. Just didn't like the clearance. Started getting vibration. So I switched. To the mega short, I'm liking the clearance. Can't wait to get out on the trails.

        mega shorty

        Everything was delivered quickly. And the machining looks amazing, only reason I don't go five stars is the yoke doesn't come with U joint caps, not a fan of that but everything else, awesome
