Question Question about a SYE ?

So can you just order the SYE and drive shaft (after measuring) and then install it? Or is there other things that must be installed along with the sye for it to work? I was considering installing an sye as my first mod and, when I upgrade my lift later I just need a new drive shaft. It sounds like its not that easy though. Also does anyone know an approximate cost for geting a shop to install the sye?

Thanks to Everyone,
Love you bye,
B-Rad

You need at least rear upper adj. control arms with adj. lowers being a good idea as well.

I was quoted $250 from a shop to do the install. I ended up doing it myself and didn't have much of a problem.

Thanks for the reply's all, so I think I will start with a set of rear lower and rear upper adjustable control arms. Looking at getting the Rokmen's around my birthday in may think they offer a military discount?

Thanks agian,
Love,

Tatton drivelines in SLC will send you the SYE kit (Terraflex kit) and an awesome long travel CV driveshaft for about $400 total.

You can call him and tell him what you have, what lift your going to eventually go with, he will ask you a few questions and then custom make your driveline and ship them to you.

His drivelines are a work of art, I left mine on the dining room table for 3 weeks, it was a shame to put it under the Jeep.

All this for $410 - click here for ebay listing


Installing a SYE is very easy, the hardest part is getting the transfer case out. You can do it with the transfer case still in, but personally I think it's easier the first time if you have it out and can see just what your doing. You won't need any special tools but you will want to go to an auto parts store and get some good lock-ring pliers (not snap ring pliers, though you need those too, but lock-ring, they are different). Just be careful to keep track of the parts as you go and remember how it comes apart and in what order, it really is a very easy job that feels very daunting.

I just finished putting mine in last weekend and did it whith the tc still in the Jeep. If I had to do it again, I would do it the same way. Once you have both drivelines out, it just means removing the tail shaft housing, then splitting the case....you would go through the same work plus some pulling the entire tc. As long as you have clearance and a creeper...no problem.

That's the way I did mine too. Having an already lifted jeep helps a lot. I contemplated pulling it since it was so cold outside though.
