S.y.e.

Ok, I have been doing some research, but I'm having trouble finding the answer to my question. So I hope someone can help out. I have the 4" RC suspension lift on my jeep right now which came with a t case drop. But with the addition of some new bumpers and other goodies, It is not quite at its full 4" anymore. It still looks fine, but I was wondering if I put in a 1-2" coil spacer lift and some new shocks that may possibly put me over the 4 inches, would it be a good idea to invest in the SYE? I'm thinking after that I will probably end up at about 5 inches of lift, if I use the SYE could I remove my t case drop or would the be too much for even the SYE?

As you can probably tell, I'm not sure how all of this is going to work out I'm just looking for some facts. Thanks

ok, maybe i can help ya out a litle
at that height, even with out the spacers, you should invest in a SYE.
with the SYE you could remove the t case drop.
that amount of lift will not be more then a SYE can handle
now along with a SYE, you will also need a cv style driveshaft, and adjustable rear upper control arms.

slightly surprised people did not answer sooner...

From the
RE website FAQs:
Support and FAQs - Rubicon Express


"Which drive shaft do I need to order?
The drive shaft style you chose is dependent on the SYE kit you choose. For the RE1801 & RE1807 you need the RE1898 series shaft. The RE1811 SYE kit will require the use of the RE1860 series drive shaft. Rubicon model Jeeps require the RE1895 "direct fit" drive shaft.

How long of a driveshaft do I need to order?
The drive shaft length is determined from the length of your stock drive shaft. To measure your drive shaft you need to measure from center to center of the upper and lower u-joints. If you order a RE1801 or RE1807 you will need to add 5.5" to your drive shaft length for the RE1811 add 4.5" to you measurement. Example, If you measure your TJ wrangler stock drive shaft at 11" and your installing a RE1807 you would need to order a RE1898-165. If you measurement does not match exactly, round down to the nearest size for a short arm kit and round up for a long arm kit. For YJ, XJ, & ZJ always round up to the nearest size."
