Can you share the reason for the new driveshaft? Is it that there are still clearance issues after installing the spacers or is it unrelated to the exhaust?

TeraFlex These exhaust spacers will work with any brand of lift on the market. TeraFlex recomends a new front driveshaft also for 3" or taller TeraFlex kits. Please refer to the video for info needed regarding these. I'll be back in the office thursday, feel free to call me then on these.

Thanks for bringing that up, I wasn't aware of that and did a search on the issue and found that it looks like some people with mid-arm and long-arm suspensions may still need a new drive shaft, or a different solution.

To clarify to anyone reading this, I have a 4.5" AEV lift with new Tom Woods drive shaft that is thinner. I still stand by my recommendation of this as, even a permanent solution, as it works with this setup (but my recommendation is with this setup alone). I have completely maxed out my suspension and gotten the Jeep on 3 wheels with no issues. However, this is the case on my specific application, and if you're using something else, YMMV in some cases.

I think, however, for those that are reaching the end of the money roll, that putting the extra money you saved on this vs the Y-pipe towards a new front DS is definitely a good move. That driveshaft even on 3" is going to get stressed quickly.

That said, if price wasn't a consideration, I would definitely have gotten the AFE Y-pipe since its the cleanest solution (and now enough people have reported no power loss on the butt dyno then back when I decided). Though, as I finish up my mods and more money frees up, I don't think I will go back and get it now for my application since the spacers worked out so well and there was no performance loss at all (on the BD).

They were properly tightened, but having to shimmy them hinders their ability to hold.

Anyone getting the spacers I suggest you use a bit of lock-tite on the threads just to be sure. Also, use a lock washer. It's not a big deal, since the exhaust has no way of falling even if both bolts fall. They are compressed in there, but even if under some crazy flex they pop off, they'd land on a cross member. You'll just get a very sweet sounding exhaust temporarily, almost felt like leaving the bolts loose .

I'm happy with the results over all. Just wanted to suggest using lock tite on the bolts, even when replaced with better ones just in case.

Thanks for the reply. I can let thing like that go too but not when itís known that the bolts are wrong to begin with. TeraFlex just posted about the bolt issue so it looks like they are making things right.

I,m sorry but I don't remember. It really was not a big deal to me. It,s only bolt. Sure,, it would have been nice had they come with the correct ones but I try not to worry about the little things. Heck,, I have already put it behind me.

Terra flex what the deal??? are the spacers 1.75 and 2.00 correct length? maybe the bolts are incorrect
The spacers are the correct length, the only issue has been a bolt that doesn't have thread down far enough. We are switching out some of the bolts to one that is 10mm shorter, so there will be enough threads for the nuts.

You will need to address the exhaust issue on most lifts above 2.5". You can lower the suspension about 2.25" before the driveshaft just about comes into contact with the exhaust.

Take a look at 1:40 in the video.

Anyone wanting the shorter bolt, please email me your info. j.thompson@teraflx.com

Any lift kit with shocks or extensions that are 2-1/2" or longer than the stock shocks when extended will have the same problem.

Mastersonics Wonder why the engineers at Chrysler didn't thought of this.
Especially with the new engine, tranny upgrades...

They should know people like to upgrade their Jeeps [lifts, wheels, bigger tires etc...]
Not sure why they didn't do anything about this...

River Hill Trying to decide on the crossover from AFE or the spacers. Has anyone installed the new crossover? Also wonder if Teraflex has fixed the bolt problem with the spacers?

I'm was disappointed with TeraFlex with this product from the beginning. They price the item at $29.99 and just overnight jack up the price to $59.99..... then they start shipping the item that does not work or sets up like the video indicates... just to finish it up, the folks have questions and they do not even come back to answer the questions on the product they are selling.
They can come in and start answering questions and possibly sell more exhaust spacers.
