Exclamation Rear Driveshaft

I have a 2001 TJ Sport. Next mouth I will be butting on a Dual Sport 4" Long Arm System by Pro Comp. Some 35's By Pro Comp on Mickey Thompson Classic Lock. With a ATLAS 2 the LENGTH in 13.8". How Long Should the Rear Driveshaft? If you have some ideas. I like to hear them.

That sounds like something that would be fabbed after your new t-case is in place.

Once the lift is installed you will measure from the center of the ouput shaft u joint on the transfer case to the center of the u joint on the rear diff. If your getting a cv driveshaft, the shop will give you an inch or two movement in both directions, so the measurement doesn't have to be too exact.

What he said above. Have to wait until the lift is on. and you will want to flex it to make sure you have enough play in the shaft. btw what made you pick that lift?

Sounds like you have a lot of $$ going into this thing, it will really be best to wait. But if you have to have it. You have some known factors: Rear axle, size of lift and t-case. 1st how does the atlas differ in size from the np231, Find out. Then find somebody with your lift or another long arm with spec's close to yours. And see what size the rear drive shaft on theirs. Make adjustments for the atlas and rear axle, and it might get your close.

If you have not already purchased the ProComp long-arm kit, I would reconsider that brand decision. There are many other long arm suspensions to choose from that are MUCH better quality and offroad performers including Clayton, Rubicion Express (RE is on my TJ), and Full-Traction. Of all the long-arm suspension lifts out there, it's my strongest possible personal opinion that ProComp's is at the bottom of the heap both quality and performance-wise.
