If it's in TJ Chat it's serious. OT is for OT.

There are several companies out there that make several different version.

With your RK kit you'll need a custom shaft along with the SYE.

The SYE that I have is by Advance Adapters, and the drive shaft is by TomWoods. I got them together as a package with my lift, otherwise I would have went to REEL oh Hi-Angle Driveline for a custom shaft.

Now days I would recommend with being able to use the longest possible driveshaft you can on your TJ. I have a Tera ESS SYE on mine and JB Conversions also makes a super short SYE. Gives you 3 or 4 more inches of driveshaft length over the AA setup.

RIP - what kit are you looking at specifically? The 4" short arm or long arm?

If you buy through RockKrawler(the long arm) with the SYE and CV that they offer, its $2829.

I've seen a RE 4.5" long arm with SYE and CV for $2650.

I know Jeremy and I love his products, but you don't ever want to buy your equipment directly from the manufacturer.

Seriously though fella's back on topic. Take a look at this comparison of SYE's. Which one would you rather have?

The shorter one of course. ANd the JB version that you are showing is just as long as an Atlas TCase.

Good, I'm glad we all learned a lesson today. Atlas is a whole other ball game. Not all of us are cool like Blu or Kat and can have an Atlas or a Stak.

Like I said, the only reason I got the AA SYE, is because it was included in the lift kit, basically free. If I was buying the SYE seperatly I would have gone with the JB or Novak and went to J.E. REEL for a drive shaft.

It has a speed sensor in the housing and tone ring on the output shaft.

Well that's pretty much the down side of it. The only way I know of other than having the correct gears for your tire size is a speed calibration tool from Sky Jacker.
