SYE for YJ ?

I know nothing about them YJ's but have a friend that now has one and wants to put 35"ers on it. I have found that a 4" lift with 1" body lift and TJ flares will let the 35's fit without much rubbing. But here is what I am not sure of. When going with a 4" lift in a YJ do you have to install a slip yoke eliminator kit and new CV Drive Shaft? Lastly will the front shaft be long enough?

If there is anything that I am for getting about other then Brake lines, drop pitment arm, and gears to get them tires moving let me know. Thanks Mike

With a 4" lift on a YJ you do not need a SYE.
The stock driveshafts will work.

Re: SYE for YJ ?

Well, there are a few issues. Is your friend leaving the dreaded D-35 in the rear? How about gearing? With 35" tires, I'd say that 4.56's are almost a necessity, and regearing the D-35 is a waste of money.
As far as the SYE, yeah, maybe the stock driveshafts will work, but with *everything* else needed to make 35's work, spending $500 for the Tom Woods kit is a drop in the bucket.
