What is the best NP231 tailshaft conversion & CV driveshaft combo for the money?

I'm doing a spring over in a couple of weeks and I will be purchasing this item. So many people are now making these things and I can't tell the difference from one to another other than the price and manufacturer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated? Thanks.

Tom Woods setup is what I am going to use. The SYE kit and driveshaft together are $460 and everyone knows he makes the best shafts out there. There is a review of it on www.rockcrawler.com His website is www.4xshaft.com but HIS SYE kit is not listed on the site yet. Another option and only recommended if you plan to swap out the tcase someday is to use the Rubicon Express cut the shaft $100 SYE kit and a $250 drive shaft.
Good luck,
Aaron

I noticed you probably have a spring over by your user name. What full size brake lines need to be bought for maximum articulation. I'm currently having some springs made by Alcan springs that should yield 5 1/2 inch lift and I"ll be using RS9012 on all four corners.

Rubicon Express also offers a Heavy Duty conversion, not just the cut down type. By the way, don't waste time on the cut down shaft. You are just asking for breakage with that. The Rubicon heavy duty shaft is made by JB Conversions. After having said all of that, I like the Tom Woods stuff a lot.

Good luck!
