also, if i do a HnT, what is the weak point? would the U-joints break before the output shaft breaks?

$99.99 - Slip Yoke Eliminator (96 & Newer)
$11.22 - Shipping to 23702 US (change)
-$10.00- Coupon code NAXJA
$101.21 - Total

If you've still got another $150, that's enough to rebuild a stock driveshaft yourself.

$30 - Used front driveshaft (CraigsList or junk yard)
$53 - Spicer 211355X
$35 - (3) Spicer 5-153X
$118 - Total

That still leaves you $30 to source the drill bits and a tap, should you need them.

hmm thats interesting, do i really need that red flange thing?

also, do i need to rebuild the stock front driveshaft or is it OK if i get one that has recently been rebuilt, my neighbor has one he rebuilt as a spare but then sold his jeep.

The flange is for the 95 and older t-cases so it's nothing you need to deal with. The photos on that site are a little misleading but your finished product will look like the pictures below. I've pulled 3 different driveshafts out of junkyard rigs and they've all been fine. Most likely, yours will be to. I was just letting you know you're likely to have plenty of spare cash. More info on this kit and my install at http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f177/...l#post12484186

So you have the IRO HNT and it bolted up without the additional flange, right?

Correct. On the 96-01s the output shaft is sealed rather than the slip yoke.

Maybe. Wait and see after you install the lift. Every Jeep is different. If you have vibrations after the lift, you can figure out what you want to do from there. Some are okay with 3" of lift, some just need a transfer case drop, some need a SYE and some need a SYE plus shims.

My XJ has 3.5" of lift, no vibes, no TC drop, but i want to go to 5 or 6" so I ordered the SYE from Dirtbound Offroad. now just need to get a front Driveshaft.

Right, got that. I was actually talking about the Spicer 211355X.

Does the IRO (or Dirtbound) HNT require the Spicer 211355X or not? The photos make it look like it doesn't, but I want to be sure.

No, it doesn't require anything else. That part is just another potential wear item for the front driveshaft.

Awesome. Thanks for the help. There's a lot of information out there about SYEs, but some of it is conflicting.
