The 3" body lift has absolutely nothing to do with a SYE. You could use a 12" body lift and it does not change the drive shaft angles at all.

So, like another posted, mild riding, may not need one, heavy off roading, you will need it with 4" suspension lift.

Mitchness If you trim fender you might as well do a TJ flare conversion. There're tons of writeups about it all over the web.
03-03-2011 08:42 AM
black94yj I don't think cutting the out the spot that is hitting will work. Only reason the spot is were the flair is bolted to the fender. Just afraid that I will not have enough left to bolt it back together.

cpisani89 yea i broke out the grinder and sawzall and will admit it was not done right lol. fml

Undead-89 I have friend who id a 4" lift on a TJ without the SYE. the biggest issue he has is because of the TC having to have been moved he can't always get the 4WD shift lever to engage fully because it hits the plastic before it gets all the way back. He's going for the "belly up" kit as he calls it.

Crso8541 Very true, "if done right" is the key though, but anything would look better than 3 inches of body lift.
03-03-2011 02:33 AM
Mitchness "Ouch" what? Done correctly you can free up a lot of flex space and still look professional at the same time.
03-02-2011 09:22 PM
black94yj Ouch!!!
03-02-2011 05:20 PM
Mitchness Break out the and go to town!!
03-02-2011 04:35 PM
black94yj Kind of hard to see but...

uplifted Ran a 4" lift without an SYE for 10K without single issue... I'd say 4" is the limit though..
03-02-2011 04:09 PM
Mitchness Well, the 4" SL will need it. The 3" BL should just come off.

Really, why go to all the trouble of lifting the frame of the vehicle just to drop the center of it back down with a TC drop?

black94yj So a 4 inch suspension and 3 inch body really need one!!!
03-02-2011 03:26 PM
whiteyj Those that do any wheeling will say 4" will require SYE. There are many that don't do any appreciable wheeling that will run 4" without one.

Sye?

What is the max amount of lift before you need one?
