research for project...

Just wheeled my stock yj toy for the first time, planning to go with the RC 4" lift, but want to know what is the best sye for a 95 wrangler 4.0ltr. I heard in the TJ forum Rugged Ridge do nothing but leak.

Go with higher doller company's like old man emu. That's what I have and the shocks are amazing haven't leaked yet and iv had em forever! You would deffintley get your moneys worth. Sky jacker, rugged, and all thoes are ok but they seem to leak fast. Iv also have decent luck with monroe shocks to. But at the moment I have old man emu lift kit and shocks

Removes the slip joint driveshaft, it is stronger, it also prevents the stock slip joint to come out from your transfercase and leak fluid all over, specially if you have a lift kit.

The SYE shortens the length of your T-Case and gives you a better driveshaft angle. With the double carden joint and the slip yoke is in the middle. IT is beefed and looks great. There is an excellent video on Youtube for SYE install from Advanced Adapters. Follow it closely and no isssues. You will need a GOOD set of snap ring pliers. Then do you have a new driveshaft if not after you are done follow the directions on this website, Tom Woods, get your measurements and call on the phone, mine was $309 to the door.

No more vibes and no fear of losing the driveshaft and fluid.

I have run two advance adaptors sye kits. I would go with that or JB conversions. In addition to allows you to run a longer driveshaft.. on the YJ it will also allow you to run with out the rear shaft and the worry of leaking t-case fluid. check into tom woods driveshafts for combo deals on the sye and shafts.

I'm going with the JB Conversions one. It's the shortest one available (that I know of) and it's top quality (as all of the JB stuff seems to be).
