Theres a little red and silver tag on the back side of your TC that will tell you. But yes 231.

Cool, thanks ! Reason I ask is because I'm wanting to get rid of the TC drop and was looking at SYE/ CV options.
Can I loose it with a MML ?
I have what I believe is a 2 1/2 in lift that the PO installed.
I can post pics if it helps.

It's just a Rancho sport lift I think. I'll be replacing it in a few months with an OME lift of about the same size.

You don't yet need to spend the $$ for a SYE kit & cv driveshaft for only a 2.5" suspension lift. A MML should probably be enough.

A Browndog 1" MML would be fine, as would a M.O.R.E. Bombproof. Just make sure to get the rubber version of either brand, which will have a very long life, their polyurethane versions pass a lot more vibes.

Savvy Offroad makes a better designed BL than Daystar does... at least in my personal opinion. You can see it at Body Lift 1.25" TJ/LJ 97-06. Plus Gerald at Savvy gives WF members a discount.

Thanks Jerry, Will that let me eliminate the TC drop or do I need to address other things as well ? I hate that Shovel hanging down. Its pointless IMO to lift and drop at the Same time. Plus it's ugly as Sin !

The reason I was looking at the SYE/CV is that I saw a deal on the combo for the 231 and want to TT eventually. Thought it might be beneficial to already have them.

I would not install a SYE/CV driveshaft until your lift height warrants it, like 4" or taller. A 1" MML may by itself be enough to eliminate the tcase drop for a 2.5" lift... if not, a few washers added around each of the 6 bolts to serve as a much shorter tcase trop would do the trick.
