SYE for np231?
Found a SYE on CL that says it is for a YJ with an np231. Is there any reason why this wouldn't fit a 2006 LJ?

Also, found out it is a mega short sye. Opinions? Is this best for a future tummy tuck?

with the length of the LJ rear shaft a mega short is not needed. Who makes the SYE and how much... advance adaptors and JB conversion sye are both around $200 and to me are worth it.

Rugged ridge mega short sye new in the box asking 175 but I will only go up to 125. I know mega short isn't necessary but I read they are better for tummy tucks. Any truth to that?

yes.. there is truth for mainly TJ's... LJ have an additional length.... but either TJ or LJ you will still have a better driveline angle with the mega short SYE + TT than with a standard SYE +TT

Not sure on the YJ issue, they are a little different. Go on RR webpage and see the application that it lists for it. And buy a handful of rear seals while your at it, you get good at swapping them out for the $75 difference, I would get an AA one or the JB conversions one.

Thanks,the guy didn't want to deal so I will wait for an AA orJB. Thanks for the info. I have already learned my lesson with less than top of the line parts. I will be collecting individual components to do my buid the right way this time.
