Micky x2 on what Water Dog said regarding the Tom Wood's driveshaft. If you get them the measurements they usually have it shipped out by next day. It's pretty quick.

I went with the Currie relocation bracket and Currie trac bar. The bracket is the newer version that is angled away from the gas tank (JKS is angled as well). It is bolted on and requires a small weld on the housing tube. I know you said you don't have access to a welder and neither did I so I just called around and convinced a welder to come out to weld it for $25. It literally took him 5 minutes, and he was out of there.

Big Cole Take a look at tattons driveshaft service based in Utah. I paid $235 f
including shipping for my custom driveshaft. Its a quality unit and I have no complaints.

Water Dog I just did mine and went for the JKS bracket and adjustable trackbar. I figured since I was doing it, it would be nice to be able to get the rear centered. I used Tom Woods and was very satisfied. If you take a measurement from the rear seal of your transfer case to the center of the pinion yoke, measure your tc drop, and know what SYE you are using, you can call Tom Woods and they will do the math to get you the right length. You don't have to wait until you get it set up. Mine fit perfect.

homebrwd I just ordered the JKS bracket for mine as I am in the same situation. Should work with the stock bar.

Woods, Tatton, Carolina are all good shaft makers. Find out if you get anything like a good warranty, free lengthening/shortening and such from the local guy to see if its worth the extra costs.

SYE setup

Slowly I've been getting all my parts together to get rid of my t-case hanging low. Went with the currie aluminum rear upper and lower control arms. Have an Advance Adapters SYE kit on the way. Need some advise on the last two things I need.
For the drive shaft - should I go with a Wood's? I also have a local builder, but he's a little more.
I'm guessing once I get my pinion angle set, I'm going to need a rear trackbar relocation bracket. What is a good one to get? Would prefer bolt on, since I don't have access to a welder. Do I need an adjustable trackbar as well, or will stock do with the relocation bracket?
This is finally all coming together - can't wait to finish.
