We'll I did it this time.....SYE question

So I mananged blow apart the clips on my rear yoke(leaving the bolts snapped off isnside the yoke), causing my drive shaft to spin crazy, and broke some part off my T-case ( the cone shapped piece that goes over the spindle that connect to the drive shaft...whatever its called).... Of course this happens a few days after my budy tj's diff complete anialated itself...

I was offered a pretty damn good deal on an SYE kit with new drive shaft, now question, will i need any other part than what i have to get it in?
The transfer case is fine... but most likely needs a new spindle, but that comes with the kit...

i've seen a picture. basically it extends the part where the driveshaft connects so that its closer to the tcase and you can get a longer driveshaft. it definitely looks different than stock.

stands for slip yoke eliminator if you didn't know that already.

If you know anyone with a Rubicon, look at the difference in the rear drive shaft, and how it connects to the t-case.

I now what it stands for.... But basicly the Yoke in the rear is going away....(its already broken, The universal joint strap bolts have to be drilled out), so i wont need to worry about saving that, correct? and i do believe that the housing that sheared off from around the spindle is replaced in this also, correct?

Ok.... So if the rear yoke is basicly where the drive shaft came on done, and then caused the spindle housing thing to come on done when the driveshaft was cuasing mahem under my jeep.... What is the SYE actually doing for me? Why not just get replacement stock replacement parts?
Thats a noob question, but I would like to know the answer...

As stated before, the SYE kit will allow for a longer drive shaft and a CV joint on that shaft. When you go with a lift bigger than what you have you need this style drive shaft to eliminate vibrations. Although this is not manditory for your Jeep it could still be useful if you ever blow another universal. You will be able to pull the rear shaft and get home in front wheel drive without all of your gear oil spewing out from where the factory slip shatf was.

drive shaft yoke to rear end

I had all four bolts shear off, the yoke that connects the drive shaft to the rear end. I did not have to drill the bolts off they came out with out drilling.

Ok thanks for explaining.... I did remove the rear driveshaft and drive away front wheel driven...with t-case fluid spewing everywhere, but it was only about a 1/2 mile away.
