Any recommendations on which SYE brand to go with or are they all created equal.

Haven't really heard of a bad SYE kit, all sold for the TJ seem to be fine. Tom Wood at Tom Wood's Custom Drive Shafts - Tom Woods Custom Drive Shafts Custom Driveshafts Specialist has sye/CV driveshaft kits, you won't find better pre and post-sales support from Tom or his staff. I'm currently running them front & rear with 1330's and have run, I think, 5 of them over the years on two different TJs. Never an issue and Tom is a real gentleman I was privileged to meet and talk at length with at a 4x4 show years ago. Great guy.

Thanks for all the comments I’m already running a Tom woods front driveline so I planned on staying with them for the rear. Just didn’t know about SYE.

I have had both an Advanced Adapters SYE and now a JB Conversions SSYE. I vote for the JB Conversions Super Short SYE. If you ever plan on a tummy tuck it will help with the extreme angles. It also gives you a better operating angle regardless as it is 2" shorter than the standard SYE, this gives you a long driveshaft. The one downside, it coverts your gear driven speedo gear to a hall ring and tone sensor. Meaning you will need to factor in a speedo healer of some sort. Roughly, an additional $75-150 dollar added expense.

For most they're just a brag point but not actually doing anything that a standard SYE doesn't do.

Definitely didn’t need SSSYE for my LJ but it didn’t hurt anything and I already had a speedo healer so no change there.

Just order the combo from Tom Wood and be done with it.

i got sold on the JB SS SYE it is clearly beefier and more detailed in construction than the comparison unit they use. and that joint a couple inches forward equates to a lessor degree or 2 of angle as well as a bit of length.

I had no other choice but to install a super short. My driveshaft was binding at droop after installing the savvy ua and at 4" of lift.

Here's a video from Teraflex, but it's gonna be the same with the JB Conversions SS SYE.

You can install it with the transfercase still attached, and it should only take you a few hours if not less. Basic handtools other than a lock ring plier.



I had my first sye installed by a shop back years ago when I didnt know what I was doing, they charged me 1k for the sye, dc driveshaft, and labor to install it all.
