The driveline vibrations were completely eliminated afterwards. It fixed multiple problems I was having. This post from my build thread details everything it fixed for me.

Also worth noting, I couldn't find a harmonic balancer puller long enough for the rear output shaft. If yours has a harmonic balancer, either see if you have better luck than me finding a puller, or do what I did, which was get 3 long m6 (I think) bolts and use those to tighten into your old housing gradually until it pops loose enough to remove by hand. Scars up your old housing a bit, but it's not like you're going to use it again.

Good luck, and believe me, the work that goes into this is worth it. It eliminated all of the problems my transfer case drop created, worth every penny and bloody knuckle. Remember that if you get pissed off at a snap ring or two.

Yup he sells it as a kit with Extreme Short SYE.

GoldenSahara00 I have a rugged ridge SYE I got from a friend, which I believe is the same one RC sells, according to the RR. It will be going in in a few weeks, I hope. I'll let you know how it is. There is a common issue with the seal, but that's a cheap and easy fix. My friend had no issue when running it on his rig.

Ha. I was referring specifically to your SYE and driveshaft. Looking forward to the day.

Relocatedduckman I would make sure you have the pliers before pulling it.. Don't use any other pliers.. Could cause damage really quick.. Gears are not cheap to replace!!

I had to use a 6in gear puller to remove my harmonic balancer.

I used Lisle 44900 lock ring pliers with no issues.

1rbotma ok.. a set of craftsman pliers may not work... hope they do.. thanks.

Jerry Bransford Who is this Tom Woods guy? Is he related to Tom Wood?
05-06-2013 01:48 PM
Relocatedduckman I bought the tereflex super short sye.. And Tom woods rear drive shaft.. I LOVE the super short sye!! Great price and customer service from both tereflex and Tom woods. Even ordered the front driveshaft from Tom woods after getting the rear one in.. You can't beat the customer service!!
05-06-2013 01:26 PM
Jerry Bransford You won't need a puller but yes you'll need a good set of snap-ring pliers that open extra-wide. Most snap ring pliers I've seen don't open widely enough to install a SYE kit, I had to get mine from a Matco tool truck I noticed parked at a local car dealership.

homebrwd all measurements put the pinion at 1/2 degree blow shaft angle. The fisheye of the camera may distort it a bit.
05-06-2013 11:06 AM
Jerry Bransford Looks good, though it doesn't look like you've lifted the pinion shaft up to the angle it needs to be at for the new CV driveshaft yet.

SYE and Driveshaft

I've read that people prefer tom woods drive shafts and advance adaptors or JB SYE kits for us.

Has anyone used the SYE kit and drive shaft from Rough Country? I know there are some people who hate their lift and with that maybe their other products.


But does anyone have first hand experience with them?

I have a 00 tj 4.0" lift, np231 transfer case, g2 d44 axle. and tc drop kit.
