I concur.

KidRock171 I've heard positive things about Adams as well.

Jeep_guy3 I've got the rugged ridge SYE and an Adams driveshaft. The SYE is leaking at the output seal (RR was VERY quick to respond to my email and also quick in sending a replacement seal), assuming replacing the seal fixes my leak I'll be happy that I only spent $400 shipped... If not I'll be getting a refund from RR and buying a different one.
As far as the driveshaft goes ive heard good things from them, and they were super quick to send it out and it fit like a glove. From reading both marketing posts they use the same materials as TW and other competitors.

KidRock171 I'll be switching to a 4" lift next year and will be getting the "special" rubicon DS from Tom woods. I forget the model number.

jarradfiorito Tatton all the way.

On my second shaft from them right now.

Very high quality, and very reasonably priced.

TnDz TJ Tom Woods has a great rep... so does Tatton.... AA, JB are the top for SYE but there are others out there.

The only thing is, you need to install the SYE AND your 8.8 to get the proper measurement needed for driveshaft length.

I just bought a combo deal... Rugged Ridge SYE and Tatton rear shaft for $420

3025826 I second kid rock, sye Tom woods is built well, installs alright and is priced the best for what it is

KidRock171 Advance adapters SYE Tom woods DS is the go to combo for most of us. Also you have a slip yoke. Your looking for a slip yoke eliminator. Unless you have a rubicon. Then you don't need anything but the DS
