Drive Shaft Question?????

Hey guys I finally have my news transmission in and looks great. I went with the NV3550 along with my original 231 that I added a SYE to. Im staying with the original Dana 30's and the front shaft fit perfect. I know with the SYE the rear drive shaft will be different and it appears to be a very extreme angle. My YJ is a 87 with a SOA and the original 258. The question is with this information can I call and order a new drive shaft from someone or do I need to take it to a shop and have them custom fab one??

Call Tom Woods or Adams drive shaft they are on the web and can answer all your questions and tell you which measurements they need to make a custom shaft. Or you can look around locally for a driveline shop. It's not rocket science but the pinion angle thing with the Jeeps needs to be understood. You might just have a place local.

if you set your pinion angle on the rear end before installing your sye you may need to shim to get the correct pinion angle.
