SYE needed for 4\" lift on Scrambler?

I know shorter wheelbases (-5's & -7's) need the SYE if lifted ~3" or more, but does my -8's longer wheelbase/driveshaft eliminate the need? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

What about the front? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

I think I am going w/ the Rubicon Express Extreme Duty 4" lift, w/ Doetsch Tech 3000 shocks. Is $910 a good deal for this combo? (Includes shipping.)

Other thoughts/suggestions?

Re: SYE needed for 4\" lift on Scrambler?

Scramblers and cj's don't need sye. Slip yoke elimnators are for yj's and tj with 231's. The dana 300 and dana 20 have fixed out put yokes and the drive shaft has a slip joint in it where as the 231 gets all it's travel from the t-case out put and doesn't have a slip joint in it. People put sye's in so they can run a cv drive shaft to deal with the steep angle. You should be fine with your drive shaft, it might need to be a little longer. If the angle is too steep you can get a cv yoke and have a cv drive shaft made.

Did you call DC at DC4WD ? he tends to be able to put together the best price. Tell him I sent you...he'll either double the price or give you a better discount.

No, I have a 4" lift on my '81 and have no problems with vibration with either driveshaft. It did extend my rear driveshaft fully, so now I'm looking into getting it lengthened, however I haven't had it come apart yet on my off-road excursions.

Lissen to Jeeper99xj He is the only one that seems to have read what you have and knows what you said. CJ Never had a slip yoke So and SYE is not available for them. There are short shaft kits or 2 different Dana 300's out there one puts the rear drive shaft back further then the other. In a CJ8 though unless you go well over 5" you should be ok at the rear by just installing the lift measuring the length of the shaft needed then having the one you have now retubbed.

Re: SYE needed for 4\" lift on Scrambler?

LOL Ok you got me there I also looked at it as you telling him to go to DC4WD to get an SYE kit. My bad!!!!!

But also try www.mesa4x4.com [email protected] and tell him I set you I will say that DC and Mesa are the 2 cheepest I have been able to get good deals form both.

Yes I do remember Jeeper99 and thats why I made the quote in the shipping cost to Florida post!! " I would deliver it down there just to help keep Jeeper99 from recking that great state during spring brake" or something to that effect. LOL

It just ticks me off when I see people leaving comments that they know nothing about. If they are not sure about something they should state that!!!! Other wise some one that has an honnest question gets to look like a fool when they think they have good info.

It's the 1st time ever i was right. Even jole has agreed with me a couple times and was impressed with my lack of go pedal wheeling before my jeep took a dump new years day at the badlands.
