      Yes. The female section of the slip yoke and the the part where the ujoint gets pressed in. When I did the three link I needed to extend the front shaft a few inches. Instead of lengthening the driveshaft, I found a different slip yoke that would fit that was a bit longer. Now I redid my links a bit to get caster better and I need to get in back shorter. I cant find my original yoke currently.

      What slip yoke did you use and will it fit a Dana 35 TTB pumpkin? And how much longer was it?

      You sold me a rear driveshaft. I still need to modify it to make it a spare.

      Yes it will fit the dana 35. I do not remember the part number. I went here

      http://www2.dana.com/expertforms/demenu.aspx?prod=JOI

      I found one that had the dimensions I needed and started calling driveshaft shops to see if they had what I needed. My driveline is no longer balanced but then again neither are my tires either.

      And DB1 is sending me what I need so I no longer need it.

      I have extended the front a few different ways. When I first did the SAS I cut it in half and sleeved the shaft with a larger tube to make it a few inches longer. When I added the doubler I took it to a driveline shop and had it lengthen about 6 more inches. When I redid my front suspension I swapped the ends to make it a bit longer.
