Extended Drive Shaft?


Been looking at my options again, still, as I'm going to be dishing out money to my Wrangler which I wanted to keep bone stock, so, I'm trying to do it wisely! (This money should be going to my gun collection, not my car! But I love this thing... it NEEDS to go higher).

Anyway, do they sell already made drive shafts so you can just buy it instead of having to get it custom made somewhere? I got a 3" bl and since my suspension is shot I'm thinking of getting a 4" suspension lift too... if I do that should I go with 33" or 35" tires? Anyway.. my main concern is about the drive shaft... the kit comes with the brake line relocation brackets and a TC lowering kit or w/e... anything else I need? Links would be great! Info as well.

Greatly appreciated!

well I will go ahead and be the first to say it....get rid of the 3" BL. It's too tall! Go ahead and do some research on a SOA lift. It will net you the same lift (about 5") You should be able to run a 33" no problem. And the ride should be a whole lot better than a 4" SUA.

Just my 2 bits.

you my find that the tc lower kit may not work to well.sooner or later you'll have to go with the sye and a new driveshaft.
