driveshaft length

i recently did the 4" rough county lift in my 95 yj and still have to put the transfer case drop bracket and sye in and plan on doing this on friday. i have a hill and rti event at my school on sunday and want to run both my jeep and truck but still need to have the driveshaft cut down. has anyone done this exact set up and know the driveshaft length so i can have it cut in advance?

If you are going with the SYE you won't need the transfer case drop. I hate those things. To do this correctly, you'll need to install the SYE and then measure the distance from the yoke at the SYE to the yoke on your differential, then have the driveshaft cut to fit.

To me, RC is kind of the Harbor Freight of springs. Sometimes you get a good deal and sometimes you don't.

why would you run a t-case drop and SYE?

And I would never spend the money on a driveshaft with out measuring it myself. you have a small margin of error.

Drop your driveshaft off at your local shop and keep them on standby when you can get the measurement to them.
