Hello again gentlemen!
I've searched and read up plenty on SYE kits and the cardone driveshaft (DS henceforth) I need to order. I got the super short SYE kit from JBConversions for my '94 YJ. I have yet to install it. The YJ I purchased with some sort of Procomp lift (Seemed to be about 4") and I got about another inch of lift from some boomerang shackles (Clearance for my 35s). So, here's my question. I've read how to take the measurements for the DS I need to order to install the SYE, BUT, my concern begins when considering the 8.8 I will install sometime in the future. I'm not really about to jump on that as it will be a bunch of money to do properly, but it WILL happen in due time. I'll rag on the Dana 35 for a bit longer. However, I don't want to wait until the 8.8 swap to do the SYE install. So all in all I have about 5.25" of lift. How will this future rear-end-swap affect my DS?
Also do any of you have any experience with the Tatton driveshafts listed on eBay? The feedback seems terrific but to save only about ~$65 I may just go ahead and spend the $300 on a Tom Woods, yeah? I don't do any crazy offroading but I'd like to build the YJ to be able to take anything I throw at it. It was that mentality that cancelled out the idea for an XJ cardone DS; or should I still consider that?
I'm a newb to this, as you can tell. Your knowledge and input will be greatly appreciated!
Last but not least, if you care to check out my YJ build progress (Slowly but surely) you can find me on Instagram. I'm not really starting a forum thread or anything but following a couple builds via mostly pictures: IG: @94yjbuild.
Thanks again guys
