Another lift thread!Help

Hey everyone I need some help! I've looked up threads and I'm still confused! Its a 2000 Xj classic 4.0. I'm getting some general grabber at2 tomorrow and the next thing to do is add the lift. The lift kit I'm going with is the rc 4.5 x series. It comes with a tcase drop, but from what it sounds like is the cheap way to go and leads to problems down the road. How bad is a tcase drop and how soon should I get a SYE? When I get one for it I was thinking about the RC SYE, does anyone have any input on it? Would I need any thing else for that SYE or would that be everything I need to do it?

How big enough of a tire will you be running?

A SYE is not always needed.....must most of the time you will get driveline vibes from a 4.5 lift.

I would put he lift and tires on, then drive it to see if you have any vibes. If you have some vibes you can install the TC drop as a temporary fix until you have the funds for the SYE.

The only thing you'll need in addition to the SYE kit is another front driveshaft from a Cherokee to replace your rear one with.

The tires I'm getting are 235-70r16s. I do plan on getting bigger tires but will be waiting until after the lift. What's the reason for needing a new drive shaft with the SYE? Is it because the one that on it will be to short for the SYE? If so is their one I can look for from another 4x4 that would work? Of possible I'd like to get a used one until I can save up for a new drive shaft. And is their any shafts I should look at? Such as a certain brand or length I should be looking at?

The whole point of doing a SYE is to be able to install a CV driveshaft. The easiest and cheapest option is a used front shaft from a Cherokee. They work great.

You can always buy a nice new woods driveshaft if you so feel inclined but the front shaft works and its cheap.

Ahh ok, I get what you mean. You can use a front end drive shaft for the rear end when you install a SYE correct? If I can just go pull one out of a Cherokee from a scrap yard ill do that instead of buying a new one!
