Anybody know about this SYE?

http://www.driveshaftsuperstore.com/SYE_Kits_$375.htm

I'm looking at the external kit. Looks like it will do the job just fine, but I'm curious if anybody has experience with it.

From what it appears to me, they are just selling a CV drive shaft and an output shaft adapter to allow the use of the CV shaft. The pic of the shaft installed shows a new (aftermarket) output yoke on the transfer case. The same as is required to do the standard SYE kit that involves opening up the case and removing parts. I don't really see how they can state that you don't have to tear down the case when it shows the aftermarket parts. This is how I am seeing the page, others may see it differently.

Personally, I would go for a tried and true SYE kit. Good luck with your choice.

Jeff

It says for a YJ you have to drill and tap the output shaft on the t case to install the yoke, no tearing down. I was just curious if anybody has used it and how much of a buttpain it might be to do.

Also refered to as a Hack-N-Tap kit... but I was unaware that anyone other than Rubicon Express made these.

Hey YOTE!

Best bet would be a place in nevada. I used them. You can buy the mega short sye for $439 and the regular sye for $ 389 WITH the custom driveshaft and shipped for free. I used then personally and then with our shop. If you or anyone else is interested the number is 1-800-216-1632. I worked with chris. They have everything. The website is drivetrain.com. Seriously, check them out, I'm about to order my new rugged ridge top for less then 400.
