Buy Advance Adapters instead.

I was shopping for the same thing and Quadratec as well as 4WD advice me against that brand. I went with Advance adapters and a custom Woody Drive shaft. I love the set up!

1BLKJP Yup, there are tradeoffs in everything we do. The removal of a "speedo gear" didn't mean anything to me. I wanted a stouter output and a longer dshaft. It won't really matter when I stretch it, but it's been nice running a 21" dshaft for awhile.

Yeup it does use a tone ring and and electronic sender for the speedo calibration, but honestly if you have the right gearing for your tire size then the difference is minimal. However there are people that use the True Speed calibration tool from Superlift to cure that also.

AzTJ Do some searching on the JB Short Shaft - Jack(1BLKJP) has it on his and loves it. The only downside is that it uses and electrical speedo instead of a gear.

New SYE from Rugged Ridge

Rugged Ridge has a new SYE that is "mega short". I was wondering if anyone has experience with the new design and if they are any good. Are they just as dependable and strong and do they really lengthen the drive shaft?
