Default converting to shorty

I have a brand new TCI full length glide with the dedenbear case,pro brake , etc,.
I find myself needing a shorty glide now. My question is, should I just sell this and buy a shorty or what all needs to be changed to convert this to a shorty besides the obvious. Which way would be the smart money thing?

Thanks for any info[/b]

You can have the output shaft changed for around $175 then all you need is a shorty rear cover.

yep you can either have you tailshaft resplined to a shorty and buy the aluminum rearplate or buy a new planetary set and the shorty plate. Then swap them out.
