2 in college, 1 with a 99 GC Limited

Hey, hoping for a little advice here. My son's 99 Jeep GC Limited has developed a problem at the coupling between the front drive shaft into the transfer case. Boot is all but gone, shaft is not centered in opening as if whatever coupling was inside there has failed. Very noisy especially above 50 and when you let off of gas since the shaft is "wallowing" around in the TC housing extension . My question; is the coupling a replaceable part to properly re-join the shaft end into the rcvg part of the TC? (might be called the "yoke"??) Thanks for any input !!

Welcome to the garage.
Since you talk about a boot, it should have a CV-joint. The rubber boot is well known to tear and all grease goes out/dirt comes in, starting the breakdown of the internals of the joint. This joint can be replaced separately. I bought mine from RockAuto Parts Catalog. Google " rockauto discount" for a valid discount code and get some 5% off of the price.
In the meantime, to stop the noise and prevent any further damage, i would remove the front propeller shaft. Just remove the 12 bolts which hold the CV joints to the flanges and you can drive without problems. Ofcourse you loose the front wheel drive doing this, but prevent any further damage if the CV joint would catastrophically fail. In attachment a copy of the Rockauto.com page.

Thanks for the input. Got under the jeep and a chance to do a little more research. The coupling is a "rezeppa" type and has failed. I have found couple of companies that make replacement couplings in lieu of total shaft replacement. reviews look promising and am probably going to go that route. Will update once completed.

Donīt know where the name " Rezeppa" came from, is that a brand name? I only know this coupling as a CV joint. This joint can easily be changed separately from the shaft. You can ofcourse ask a shop to replace the joint for you, or you can even do it yourself.
