Who makes the best SYE and where to get it cheapest?

Well, even though I've decided not to install the Revolvers, I do still want to do a SYE for reliability reasons (I keep breaking the |>@|\/||\| rear driveshaft!) Who is it that makes the kit with the stronger output shaft? I found one through Quadratec with the 54% stronger shaft for $340, does anyplace have it cheaper? I hear the R.E. kit leaks too much, and thats bad for going underwater with....

Tom Woods makes his own kit now. He sells it for $445 (plus $200 core) with the CV shaft.

Re: Who makes the best SYE and where to get it cheapest?

I used a Currie on my 89 YJ, it is a high quality complete kit, i think it was $449 -$200 shaft core return = $249. Without the drive shaft. The best looking engineered kit I have seen is Tera Flex's kit, comes with a new heavier output shaft housing. I think its about $450(no core return though) because they manufacture there own shafts.

If at first you dont succeed, your replacement will try and try again.

Rusty from www.rustysoffroad.com sells one made by Advanced Adapters I think that is $280. It replaces the whole tail housing like the teraflex one. I actually think it is the same part and TF relabels it. Tom Woods comes with the driveshaft though.

The ones that require a core simply cut down the core and use it in another kit. It isn't any stronger. I'm looking for the kits with the new cores that are 54% stronger. Sonds like the Qudratec kit for $340 is a good deal then.

Uh. The AA one Rusty sells is the same as the $340 one from Quadratec but for $280.
