I installed the JB Conversions kit with the mechanical speedo. I didn't want to have mess with wiring and calibrating the electronic one, and the "normal" length SYE gave me the drive line angle I was looking for.

I drove around in front wheel drive for a while waiting for my Tom Woods DS to come in. I waited until I had everything installed to take my measurements and order it. But I like how everything came out.

As you may or may not already know, make sure you have a good set of snap ring pliers to make the install go smoothly.

With a 6" lift and the tummy tuck, your driveline angles are going to be severe. So the longer your driveshaft, the better. I would go with the JB Conversions shorty kit. There are quite a few of online sources for driveshafts: Wood's, Adam's and Tatton's - to name a few.

I just purchased the teraflex sye, as well as a teraflex CV driveshaft.. Haven't installed it yet. Any ideas?

I used the transfercase drop for about a day, then realized how huge and ugly it was...

Sye it is

I actually just installed my SS SYE from JB conversions this weekend and have a couple points I want to make about it...

Customer service...SUCKS.. don't expect them to pick up the phone when you call (tried 5 times), answer an email (mine was returned un-deliverable) or give you much detail about when your parts will ship.... Luckily, my parts came within a week. My kit was missing the new retaining clip, bolt for the electronic spedo and a new flange nut. That being said, I did get a UPS notice that a second package has shipped from JBC...so maybe that is the missing parts???

If you have never replaced a SYE before then I would suggest removing or at least loosing the flange nut PRIOR to dropping the transfer case... This was my first time and the instructions do not even mention removing it at all even though you need to in order to remove the shaft...

The parts themselves appear to be well machined and of high quality. Would I buy another one from them...Yes.... but would make sure I didn't wait to order it.

As for the driveshaft, get one from the front of an XJ and have it cut down. Mine ended up at 18" from center to center but yours may be different. I am running with an AW4 on 3" lift..

Good luck!

When I bought my SYE and new shaft I actually went in to Tom Wood's shop and dealt with him directly as he is local to me. Very nice guy and very helpful. He hooked me up with a Teraflex SYE and one of his drive shafts. He offers either Teraflex or JB or Advanced Adapter SYE and I asked him which one he prefers. His answer was they are all good and would run any of them. He said they each have a little different design, but he has never seen one design exceed the others. He sells more Teraflex ones though because they have a better supply chain management system.

I'm a fan of the Teraflex SYE's - I run the regular tail length, which is basically a clone of the Advance Adapters SYE. On a good note, Teraflex also offers a short tail SYE.

So I've just started looking into installing an sye and have seen Tattons name mentioned a couple times. For those ruining his setup how is the quality? I know he uses the Teraflex sye kit. But how are his driveshafts?

Very stout and the build is QUALITY! I was very impressed with my Tatton's driveshaft. It is all scratched up now and I even sheared off the zerk fitting on my last run but it is still true as I do not have vibes, despite the abuse. Before I purchased my SYE and driveshaft, Chris was very patient and informative over the phone. I recommend the product.

You want 4.88 gears. I also suggest upgrading the rear D35 axle to either a D44 or 8.8 if you plan to of road.
