Just ordered it. Here's to hoping I can do it without ruining the shaft.

why would you need a new axle just to install an SYE?

I ment to say new driveshaft. I havent seen anyone saying they run a stock from axle with a SYE short shaft kit. If Im wrong please correct me but as far as Ive seen you need the HnT to run a factory front shaft and save money.

I was gonna say, I've never heard of anyone needed to get a new axle so they could install an SYE.

I am lost but no need for a new axle, just a new driveshaft. I was able to get away with using a stock front driveshaft in mine for 4" of lift to 8.5" of lift. I was looking into doing axle swaps and then I would need to get a custom shaft made but if you are running XJ axles, a stock front shaft will work fine.

I'm still torn between HnT or the JB SYE. $100 more and less chance of messing something up it seems. If I go ahead and bite the bullet for the HnT, what cut off wheel do I buy at Home Depot. Any 4 inch cutting wheel? And how is everyone keeping the hole they are drilling straight? What if I drill it at an angle?

unless you run a dana 35 or an AX15

stock XJ shafts end up being to short

When I did mine with my friend we jacked up the front, put it in 4lo and let it idle in 1st while he took a 4" cutting wheel to it and slowly took it off, made it smooth, then measure dead center and used a punch as a guide. No issues.

How much is the axle for the JB SYE?

So im lost at the moment, but slowly figuring this all out. From what I have read... a front auto DS and this kit: http://www.ebay.com/itm/1987-2006-Je...item5d31e2361e

Would be what I need. Rather not H&T.

I dunno if the stock front shaft would fit with a SYE like that. The H&T yoke sits out a good but further.

I got an answer back that says it will fit, but like you said, might need a longer driveshaft. Ive read that the PORC one will work with a front auto shaft, which is the same price as the Rugged ridge on ebay.

The wait to the next pay begins.... Unless i get some of these other parts sold.
