no,no seats yet.im only at the stand and look at it and say"this is gonna be schweet"stage
so i just picked up a output yoke from the jy,its a longer version than the original should i cut this thing shorter,and does 2" of spline engagement sound enough or should it be going on more?

i believe mine was cut, making it only have like .5" slip and be closest to the trans to be the strongest

for trans or tcase? I'm assuming trans slip yoke, that sounds awful shallow, usually they're more like 6" long-ish with a good 3-4" of spline engagement aren't they? Granted I don't know GM stuff...

I got a van with a good v8 drivetrain
I never wanted a red car.. always thought they were tacky and common...
I now have 4 very not common cars and they are all red.. :o
