Brandon has video of me making up the other hill.

Last time I was at 28 PSI so when I go back I'm definitely going low!

Man what a day! Plenty of good action today.

Just got home from leaving at 9:30am. We went to go see Zero Dark Thirty...bad ass.

Justin - Layne laughed at you getting your wife's permission. I'm working her over the locker and SYE I "need", wish me luck.

Rick- I'll get your video up ASAP.

And I'm free to ride next Sunday.

Slip Yoke Eliminator

Main reason most people go to it is to be able to lengthen their driveshafts to decrease the angle and help with vibrations.

Here is a pretty good explanation of the other reasons:

Your drive shaft slips in and out of t case. The sye makes it fixed. So the drive shaft you would have, would have the slip.


SYE stands for Slip Yoke Eliminator. The Slip yoke is the yoke that slides over the output shaft of the*transfercase. This is the yoke that the rear*driveshaft*connects to at the*Transfer case. The 84-95*design*uses an output housing that contains a seal at the end that holds fluid in the housing and lubes the yoke as it skids on the output shaft. This fluid is the Transfer Case fluid. The 96 and later models use a sealed housing and the yoke is lubed with grease from the factory. A small rubber boot is attached to the housing and the yoke to keep the grease from contaminants. The downside is that this setup is longer from the rear of the case to the end of the yoke.*

Thanks man, I aired down to about 15 psi and thinkg that helped out a lot. The tires just conform to the rocks and make it a lot smoother.

No Prob. $65 is a steal. I'm cancelling my order with 4WP and getting them direct from Solid in the morning.

Wow, looks good. You said you're willing to help people when bored right? Well my truck badly needs to be clay bared, cleaner waxed, and finish waxed in the next couple weeks. I'm good at enticing people with beer too
