Dont want to have to regear etc. 2.5 and 33s would be perfect for some trail riding i want to do
SYE, is a slip yoke eliminator. This makes the rear xfer case out put a fixed yoke. You will also need a new slip style driveshaft. You can go with a cv style double cardan driveshaft with this option. It eases rear ds angles and strenghthens your rear outputs. This can be pricey, iv'e seen people report 600-800 to get this done. OUCH!
Point of fact, with my RC lift so far it looks like I am gonna have rear DS issues. It sticks way out of the x fer case and IMHO it's too much and I'm not taking a chance on it. I can't understand why becuase it's only 2.5" but...It looks like I gained 3-4", plus the 1" shackles... Personally at this point I am just gonna have the rear ds lengthened at a local driveline shop, price there is about $125.
I was looking at the bds kit but some local guys are running and hard wheeling the rc kit and are not having any issues so for the difference in price i went the route i did.
