Needing to swap flanges as the front drive line is long than the rear and I need to put a cv joint in the rear. Can I swap flanges. Would like to know before I pull them. Thanks.

Yes they are interchangable or you can drill a new set of holes offset from the origionals.

Hay Eric hows it going? yes the flanges are interchangable. I am going to get a front drive shaft to put in the rear of mine soon so I can turn up the pinion. Marlin says of you run more than 5or 6" lift that you have to run a cv and turn up the pinion to keep the t-case output from ratling. Like mine does.

Thanks guys. Got my t-cases all put together and turned out that my front is 40 inches long and my rear is 36. I'm going to have to lower my rear end down by reduing some upper coil mounts as the new coils lifted the truck like 5 inches! I think I can get away with moving the front cv joint to the rear and not have it rub like it is now so it should be really ok when I lower the rear a bit. The front looks nearly flat so I am not worried about running the regular u joints. Randy my man big difference in running triple case. I think it is perfect now with the 39.5's. Anyway I am going to have to redue some linkage as the lower links are probably going to interfer with the t-case cross member though I may be able to notch it and make it work. Started building the coil mounts for the front, and nearly finished with the links. Going well, Mike and I are going to NWARCA this weekend so that should be fun. I'll take some pics and send them to ya. Keep in touch man and let me know what all you been up too.
