its my duty to help here- first off 10' lift your rear shaft is out of the question for a slip yoke espacailly if your going to put hyway miles on it - you need a short shaft kit and c/v driveline unless you don't care about vibrations and life- the kit for your 241 is 325.00 makes it a bolt on style and the driveline varies - one ton stuff it 99.00 for the flange and 469.00 for most drivelines that long- - 1/2 ton stuff will be cheaper but what tire are you going to run? over a 35 " and i'd do 1 ton for your best life- On to your front shaft did you roll your diff up at all? we will start there - feel free to call if this is all confusing - jess 530-877-2875 @ high angle driveline

for the front,im going to use a 208 flange and a cv shaft out of my blazer with some clearence grinding,,i think(hope) it will work. im running 39.5 boggs. but this rig will get driven like 100 miles a month on the street. thats all. just to ride around town and drive like 150 miles to the beach for spring break. it will see verrrrry little offroad and maybe none. i have 3 other offroad rigs to do wheelin on. that rear drive shaft is long. but how far does it need to go into the tcase for it to be ok?

jess,,thanks for the call man. ill call my friend tommrow and see if he will swap out the 6in springs for my 8in springs. hopefully next month i will get to come out west and ill look ya up and have ya build me a good driveshaft. i forgot to ask you if you had a catalog. ill try to send buisness your way. i guess i just need to move out there since its hard to find ppl with knowledge of 4x4s around here. a lift kit to most ppl here is 4in blocks front and rear with some 40in groundhawg tires. thanks for the call and i will be getting up with you for some prices.
