I would say the usual suspects for mail order drivelines, or build them yourself. Why a CV on the transfercase side of the front?

The cv would be to eliminate the vibration since the angles won't be parallel on both sides of the tcase to carrier drive line

Or at least that's what I've researched on two piece drive lines never ran one personally maybe it's not nessasary ?

might help, might not....

all a cv does is is make it so the other end of the driveline can run without any angle. doesn't matter how many u joints you have in a driveline as long as the net angle is "0".

Getting a 2 piece front driveline to be vibe free is tough because we are doing it for all the wrong reasons. The cv might help though. If you have some good info from someone who did it with success then give it a whirl!

Well I ordered up some drive shafts from je reel talked to them for a while and decided to give the cv a shot it wasent much difference in price so we will see how it works I'm hoping it will be ready next weekend but idk prolly not since I won't get anytime to test it out so I will prolly just take the green heap o jeep up for a romp in the hills

Well I took the buggy out last night for a test drive around town still waiting on the rest of my parts for the front drive line , but had a good time hot rodding around town with two wheel drive I still need to bleed the brakes some more the cutting brakes are a pain to bleed I put a pressure bleeder on it but still very spongy like the rear is full of air

Took it out and beat on it yesterday nothing to crazy but enough to get the wife cussing me wanting out although that dosent take much after she rolled her zuki but it did great I still need to wrap my headers ( the floor gets to hot to touch ) and my back brakes still have air in them but I think she is ready for the hills now so I can really test it out. Who's up for captain haha jk maybe something a little easier for the first run
