New to jeeps and have a question on (SYE)

I have a 95 jeep cherokee sport 4.0 HO 4 door with dana 30 in front and a dana 35 in the rear and also has a np231 transfer case. its stock for now but i am wanting to lift it.

What i want to put under it - i am looking at a rustys offroad 6.5 lift with 33in wheels and tires and i have read that it is smart to get an (SYE).

So my question is when i put the (SYE) in can i use my stock rear drive shaft or will i need to get one made, and i have also read about some using front drive shafts for the rear. Some key points this is my daily driver and will see more hwy then offroad but i want it to be capable when ever I need it to be. So what would be the best solution for me

i am very mechanically incline and have put many of lifts on chevys and titans but like i said this is my first jeep and have never had to mess with a (SYE) before so I thought I should ask.

Thanks

At 6.5" of lift you need an SYE. You might be able to use an XJ front driveshaft for the rear axle, if it fits. Most drive line shops will lengthen or shorten a driveshaft for about $75-150, much less than the cost of a custom length driveshaft.


Read through the info at the links below:

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

I hope you are taller than 5'8" or climbing will be a PITA!

So my question is when i put the (SYE) in can i use my stock rear drive shaft or will i need to get one made, and i have also read about some using front drive shafts for the rear.
The factory rear drive shaft is not designed to hook up to a SYE, so you HAVE to replace it. You can use a front shaft, but it will likely need to be lengthened, and likely will need new U-joints. You might as well look for a deal on a new or refurb shaft...

Some key points this is my daily driver and will see more hwy then offroad
Be prepared for a mileage drop of several MPG

but i want it to be capable when ever I need it to be. So what would be the best solution for me
Bigger tires will get you through and over bigger obstacles, but skid plates, tow points and lockers would make it more capable.
