Front Driveshaft Q

I am lifting my 2015 JKUR and instead of the exhaust spacer I thought I would go ahead and get a new front driveshaft. However, when looking for them, I have noticed two choices:

Adams Driveshaft JK 2012-15, Front 1310 CV Driveshaft Flange Style - JK-1310F-SSL

and

Adams Driveshaft JK 2012-15, Front 1310 CV Driveshaft w/ T-Case Yoke & Pinion Yoke - JK-1310F-SS2YL

The difference being the inclusion of the pinion yoke in the second choice. Forgive my ignorance, but what is the right choice for my application? I am going to be putting in a 2.5" RK X factor kit.

Thanks,
R

IMO go to yokes if you can and get away from flanges. Less overall parts and they are more common if you break something. Break a yoke, you can probably get a replacement. Break a yoke to flange adapter or a flange, good luck.

Call Adams and talk to them and order over the phone. Price is the same and they can answer any questions you have and explain why one is better(or different) than another. Great group of guys to work with.

Thanks for the advice, for the small increase in price, I would rather have a more robust and maintainable solution.

He makes great drive shafts. I run them on my trail rig and have nothing but positive things to say. Don't forget to ask for your free t-shirt.
