Did you do a sye? The super short, which I did, has a sensor instead of a gear. The pigtail easily splices in and my speed is pretty much dead on with 33's and 4.10's

I thought about doing a super short, and at some point I will probably do a standard HD model. But for now I'm going to stick with the slip yoke in the transfer case. I'm only on 2.5" lift, and no vibes from the D35.

I do have a 1" t-case drop installed, and that's the only real reason I can see for my purposes to get the SYE is to lengthen the driveshaft enough to improve the driveshaft operating angle and get the skid back up where it belongs. When I do the sye I'm going to get one with a non-cv yoke and stick with a single cardan-slip joint driveshaft. I'll never go taller than the current lift. So while the sye and longer driveshaft will be a plus, I have no need for the dc driveshaft and rewelding the perches again.

If I can find a hack-n-tap with a non-cv yoke I'll seriously consider that too.

Edit: But before that happens, and provided my current driveshaft and slip yoke combo work happily with the 8.8, I need to focus on getting a front axle together. I've had a Yukon Chromo kit, and a TrueTrac setting here since the summer of '13 waiting for that day. LOL

I know this does not count for much, but I actually drove my YJ today it mostly sits in my storage.
Not many miles on it the last few years.

Checked out a speedo gear chart to see which one I'll need once the 8.8 with 4.10's is in. I discovered that I actually don't need to change my speedo gear at all. Since I'm still running the factory 30 tooth that came on 4.0/5spd, all I have to do is get a new set of tires, and go from 32's to something in the 36"-38" flavor.

Isn't it amazing how upgrades just have a way of working themselves out?! Hahahahahaha!!!!!

Final mod finished today was moving the pedal e brake to a hand e brake from a 97 Cherokee to in between the seats with some slight modifications. Hoping inspection this week is a breeze.

That's the bumper I've got. No issues so far. Actually I have their low profile bumper for the rear too but have it for sale now cause I ended up doing a stretch before I ever used it.

Of course the weather would be 73 degrees today and tomorrow. I'm already looking forward to having my Jeep back.
What is the ballpark figure on what this is going to run you? I am about to do the same thing to my 93 and was curious at what I am going to have to spend.

I changed out my gauges. Actually, it was two weeks ago.....

They look crooked in the pic, but they're progressively angled towards the driver, so they look straight from the drivers seat. The "Boost" gauge on the right is actually a boost/vacuum gauge, they don't make a dedicated vacuum gauge...... so no, it's not turbo'd or supercharged!

Had to take my F250 Superduty to have a new bumper and some bodywork on the front panel (had a guy back into me 3 weeks ago). got home and was going back to town and my 93 wouldn't start. I just replaced my Optima red top last Saturday.It was dead this morning so I jumped it and got it started and checked the alternator with a volt meter was getting 14.3 volts at an idle @ 1500 rpm 14.8 volts. I have never had a problem with it not charging so I got to thinking on what I have done to it to bring out those electrical gremlins to it. From what I can assume my rear wiper wasn't working sometimes when I turned them on. Then after a few minutes the would come on. I am thinking I hit the rear defogger switch when I turned on my rear wiper. The smart relay may have messed up and is what drained my battery. I disconnected the connection at the back of the canopy and I will try and see if the battery will not drain with it disconnected. We are in the middle of 2 storm fronts right now and I will check it out when the weather drys out some. We have had over 100 inches of rain since the 1st of July. This is what it does when we get 8 inches of rain in 24 hours. A pic of my driveway.

My 8.8 was $150 junkyard axle
Spartan locker
Dutchman chromoly shafts
East coast gear brake kit (e brake doesn't work if you're stretched, ask me how I know)
4.88 gears
MORE driveshaft 1310 adapter

I've got roughly $1500 into my axle. $300 labor for a buddy to do the gears and weld the axle tubes where it was previously just pressed in. Installed myself cause it's easy to install.

What'd you do? I've known a ton of people who ran em and have never had an issue. Ran one in my other rig too. I think they're pretty reliable to be honest
