Question will i need a SYE for this

Im looking at putting this tummy tucker t-case skid plate on my jeep.

AEV NTH14031AA - AEV / Nth Degree Tummy Tucker for 03-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited with Automatic Transmission - Quadratec

I have a two inch suspension lift and im looking at adding a two inch body lift with a one inch motor mount lift and a t-case drop for a 2-2.5 inch lift.

If i need a SYE how hard are they to install, and where can i get a new drive shaft or have mine modded by mail.

Agreed. Why would you want to put a tummy tuck belly pan on and then a TCase Drop? Yes you are going to need an SYE to accomplish what you are looking for which also means you are going to need adjustable upper control arms also.

Tummy tucks are smoother than the stock skid. Thats the only reason i can see for him to install one and then drop it but then that ruins the point of the tummy tuck. A tcase drop will work as a temporary band aid until you do get a sye though.

This is one of the mods that there is no reason to do it unless it's done right. After the random lifts and spacers, etc... You start to get to a point in your modifications where there are certain pre-requisites that need to be done in order for things to work properly.

no the transfer case drop is for a jeep with 2-2.5 inch lift. it actually only drops the t-case about 1 inch.

Just the rear for the SYE, but you would not regret getting adj arms in front too. It gives you more ability to tune the suspension.
