SYE driveshaft?

Hey everybody! I have a 93 2dr XJ, I'm adding 4.5" of lift, I'm about to install a rugged ridge SYE, where is the best place to order a new rear driveshaft for this? Also the cheaper the better! Thanks!

Pull a XJ front driveshaft and take it to a reputable local driveline shop.

Cheapest option is getting a front drive shaft from a junk yard and having a machine shop or a driveline shop make it shorter or long as necessary.

If you want the most dependable, Tom Woods.

BA! FORGET TOM WOODS


From him I got: the wrong length, bad u joints, and a bad centering ball on the Cardan.

Tom woods takes used front driveshafts and re tubes and balances them. Doesn't even replace all the parts. YOU can do better.

I'm with GetLifted. Take some measurements first though. If an XJ front shaft is too short, try a ZJ front shaft as it's longer.

Just FYI, I paid $30 for the last one I pulled.
