How would you attach them? Slip yoke DS has a female splined end, CV has a u-joint end. So no, they wouldn't bolt up.

Might....

And i would press the first ujoint of the CV into the slip yoke of the slip yoke side...then it would be a solid shaft down to the axle. (from CV to axle would be solid tube, not slip spline)

CV shafts aren't solid shafts, they have a splined slip section in them. So the overall length of the shaft changes when the suspension cycles. Both ends of the shaft are bolted to the axle and xfer case

Slip yoke shafts are always the same length, but the position that they mount to the xfer case changes as the axle moves (axle end is bolted, xfer case end slips).

Very good, those are all things i already knew...my question is, can i make a hybrid...a slip yoke (sliding in and out of the transfer case) and a CV mounted to a solid shaft (well hollow tube, but solid length)

Cause i'm running an NP208 (with slip yoke) for now and think i might need my rear shaft to have a lot of angle to it...so i'd like a CV on it....but we'll try it regular and see what happens....

the CV is gonna make it at even more of an angle as you're adding a considerable amount of length coming out of the transfer before it starts to angle down. Also you'd have to have keep the splined section of the shaft from moving cause if it compressed it would likely pull the slip yoke out of the transfer instead of pulling the shaft back apart. I've thought about doing this but in the end the negatives outweighed the advantages to me.

I meant if you try the other way, like I said I considered it but decided against it.
