Why not?


From what you have said it should just bolt in.

The HP Š-30 drive shaft sits higher, other than that it's the same axle.

A little off topic here but are you using the UCF lowpro mount? Did you have any issues with the fitment of the skid? I'm installing both and having to do a lot of modification.

Clearance with what? The driveshaft just sits higher. It should actually help clearance unless you have some kind of insane uptravler or something weird hanging low.

I was under the impression, probably false, that the stock driveshaft would be slightly too long with a hp30 if the jeep is at stock height.

i cycled the axle and checked the shaft travel. mine was fine, your results may differ depending on your setup....which is why you cycle the axle during the install process.
