3.5 lift = drive line dropped

I just bought a 88 yj wrangler and put a 3.5 inch lift on it. I have the tc lowering kit already installed, but the stock drive line.
Taking off I was getting a vibration that would smooth out pretty quick, only to start again at a little higher speed. the drive line popped off at the tc side.
I have read that a slip yoke eliminator would not be needed but is not sure what else it could be. Could I just add the rear cv driveshaft? I have no clue!!!

A sye may not be needed, but your factory driveline is most likely too short

Welcome!

A SYE and dc driveshaft is recommended. You can have a Cherokee front shaft cut and balanced at valley driveline in Stockton for relatively cheap.

Thanks. I actually go talk to the owner of valley balancing at his Ceres shop when I need work done. Never hurts to network a bit. I will check them out.

You can figure this out using common sense.

Take a look at your rear output and how your drive shaft 'attaches.' It should be quite obvious as to why it's called a slip yoke.

Now pull up handy dandy Google and look at a double cardan drive shaft or a SYE kit, either one or both. It should be quite obvious as to why the rear output yoke is called a fixed yoke.

You will be left with no question at all if you can use a double cardan drive shaft with a slip yoke.

It's as simple as that.
