I knew it. Good news for me though. And my 2nd job starts back up in 2 weeks. Jeep parts

I'd agree with that partially, big items that are gonna get used all the time are no places to skimp on quality. But for me the smittybilt winch is what I wanted, I compare it to harbor freight tools, good for mild to moderate use, anything more and it just won't last. My jeep is a dd-weekend warrior, so a winch isn't getting used but once a month if that, so I saved the $200 and went with it and am happy this far.

If you lived a bit closer to me I'd take you to a spot that you need a winch or a pull just to get through each obstacle...

I haven't gotten stuck yet but I have web trying since I got the winch. The locker doesn't help. Haha. I don't play in mud as much now either though I get tired of cleaning.

Just wanted to let you all know.... My RR SYE real yoke seal is leaking... I think my vibes have a lot to do with it... Need to drop my pinion a few degrees... overshot it when eyeballing without the shaft.

I will be adjusting it on Friday... I only drive a mile to work, but I did a 40 mile trip today.... didn"t have any vibes until 60mph...

Same components since 1994? Well, those kits used to use a genuine spicer yoke until around the late 90s/early 00s, now everybody uses some other likely import yoke that has no markings on it.

If it is all the same parts that would be good. However, what often happens is the knock off guys come to market with their cheaper and typical inferior product, rob sales and market share from the quality made product guys that forces the quality made product guys to seek better pricing from their suppliers or worse yet, forces them to seek lower priced components and materials - or change from domestic to foreign suppliers in order for them to lower their price and compete with the knock off guys junk. It is a domino effect.

***** UPDATE******

Have a good 100+ miles on that new seal and still dry as a bone. No leaks to speak of. Contacted RR about it and they said they'd look into changing seal designs to prevent further incidents. Whether they do or not, who knows, I'm happy with their customer service and the way they handled the situation, however of you have a RR SYE or plan to get one, make sure you replace the output shaft seal.

I know that this is an old thread, but I just got my adam driveshaft and sye (I think it's Rough Trail by Crown). Installed it, leaked. Adams sent me a replacement seal, leaked again. Adams customer service has been great. It seems like the yoke wants to hit the right lower portion of the seal when it goes in. Think the replacement seal would work in that tail housing? I am frustrated as hell!

yeah.. the National Seal #3946 should work for you. Mainly, the seals that leak are cheaply made ( sent out with a lot of kits these days )and should all be redone with this National Seal. Mine has yet to leak after I installed the National seal #3946

****UPDATE****
I went to O'Reilly's and bought the National seal that everyone recommended. 80 miles on the seal and not a drop has leaked.

How is that o'reillys seal holding up? I have to do mine this weekend and was looking at the replacement RR part on amazon for $2.50 or should I get the national seal.

RR gave me the ID: 47.2mm and OD: 70mm. The O'Reillys specs seem pretty close.

Also anyone know what size the yoke nut is?

Picked up the seal yesterday. I'll put it in this weekend along with a new tranny mount, fresh gear oil.

Any tips on the install? I already have the d/s out. So i pull the yoke off (What size is that nut?) and then pry the old seal out and put it back in.

Which direction does this seal go in?

That seal is nice! Pretty easy job wants I figured out how to get the new one in there.

Ended up cutting a hole in a 2x4 and made a home brew seal driver.
