avg price ive seen people say they paid is about $500-600 per axle, so $1000-$1200, parts + installation

4.56 manual or 4.88 auto

It was going to be much more than i was trying to put into the jeep at this time. I would have pretty much been doing an overhaul. anything i would have to change on the jeep after the lift kit to run 33's?

Keep the jeep that you have an buy a Rubi case. They pop up on pirate 4x4 every so often around the tune of 1k. Sell yours along with the SYE and you won't be in the hole that bad. Added benfit is 4:1

OP, also something that I forgot to mention. You will need at the very least to have adjustable upper control arms. I would go ahead and poney up for lower ones as well. Uppers will sent your pinion angle correctly and the lower ones will push the tires back where they belong in the wheel well. Because of your lift the rear axle will be pulled forward some. Now I would highly recommend Curry or Savvy/Curry (look at savvy site for those). They made with a JJ's but the thing about them is they do not bind in housing. JJ will yeild better flex and will last thousands of miles. They are easly rebuilt if they ever needed to be. Get on jeep forum and speak with Savvy. They can hook you with some good prices.

Mortalis5509 Do not put a t-case drop on. You are lifting the jeep to get it higher and when you put a t-case drop on you just went backwards. Buy an SYE from Advance Adapters and then a Tom Wood drive shaft. Looking around 500 or so if you do it yourself. I have read that the SYE is easy to instal but I don't since I own a Rubi which doesn't require an SYE.

scgeek12 also put an add up on CL and trade those 35's for a nice set of 33"s and then you wont have to worry about the D35 (as much lol) and they look just as good!

ive got a 4" lift with a 2" T-case drop and let me tell you, its NOT the way to go, i bought the jeep like this and have replaced every single U-join in the past 8 months, and it vibes so bad i cant even have a passenger in my rear seat because the extra weight throws off the driveline angles so much it will vibrate right off the road lol, that being said a SYE is the very next thing im doing, they are not that pricey if you do them yourself but can get expensive if you have someone do it for you, if you bring it in to have it installed a local DS shaft quoted me $400 to install it , and another $120 to cut down an old XJ front driveshaft to fit, but thats if i bring in my own SYE kit, ive never done one but they look VERY easy to install so im going to be doing it myself, the parts are right under $500, including a brand new rear driveshaft- http://www.4x4groupbuy.com/store/adv...aft-p-115.html


heres a great video from advanced adapted on how to install the SYE-

So you think a TC drop is the right way to fix the vibs on a 2'' lift ?
That is a cheap way to fix the problem .
09-16-2011 11:23 PM
doclouie A 4" lift will most likely need a SYE & a CV drive shaft. I have never heard of one going that high without needing one. What will you be doing with it? 35s and wheeling hard on a D35 will explode that axle. If you are pavement pounding then it may do you just fine or it may not. There is a lot more to just putting 35s on a Jeep if done right. I must disagree on any lift should be run with a SYE/CV. That is just not needed on the smaller lifts, but a 4" is not a small lift.
09-16-2011 03:56 PM
vbTJeeper Agreed. Any lift should be run with SYE/CV shaft. You MIGHT not have a problem, but I for sure wouldn't risk it. More information about your plans with the Jeep would also be helpful. As in, how much off roading do you plan to do, future upgrades and such.

Welcome!

T2000J Any lift should have a sye and cv shaft . Some guys dont put them on and dont have any problems some do . I would put it in with a 4'' lift for sure .
As far as the 35's your axles need upgrated if your running a dana 35 rear . I'm not saying you cant run 35's with a D35 but you will have a good chance of having problems.
And welcome to the form . do a search this has been talked about alot . Good luck

Okay so just upgraded to a 2000 wrangler tj Sport inline 6. and have a set of 35x12.5x16s to put on it. Have been hearing conflicting stories about this and that about putting on a lift and the tires. I am looking at rubicon express 4 inch lift but it says you need to instal a slip yoke eliminator (SYE) and CV driveshaft on the stock NP231 transfer case. Is this true or is it just a recommended thing. Like I know others that haven't even mentioned either of these things running 35s with just the lift kit? can somebody please help me
