Time for a SYE, which one??

After my last post:
http://www.jeepforum.com/cgi/ultimat...c&f=7&t=001347

Its time for a SYE and CV driveshaft combo. does anyone out there know of a good, reliable kit? Ive seen the quadratec ones but they seem a bit overpriced. Thanks in advance
Joe

The two places that I'd consider first (for reliability) are:
http://www.bayougeep.com/

and
http://www.4xshaft.com

The second site also has a lot of good technical information. Keep me posted.

The JB Conversions SYE uses the 241 shaft. This is the best of the SYEs as far as strength. There are others out there now that have copied the JB Conversions kit. Whichever one you get, make sure it uses the 241 shaft and you've got the best.

I looked at the bolts that hold the rear universal on (yolk straps) and they are broken off which means drill out or buy a new yolk.
http://www.4xshaft.com/

this Tom woods kit:

<<AA/JB HD Conversion Kit
231 Transfer Case

$550.00 outright. This kit includes a Heavy Duty Tom Wood Custom Drive Shaft>>

Questions:

1) There are 2 there the AA one and the JB one. The JB is this the one with the 241 shaft?

2) I am also getting confused with the terms "Slip" yolk and "fixed" yolk... can someone clear this up fo me?

3) Another question is how far can I drive like this? My friend lives about 40 miles away, is it OK to drive that far in front wheel drive?

4) With this custom drive shaft will I have to get a new one if I lift it anymore?

I went with the HD SYE from High angle driveline. Jess from HA makes some of the most bulletproof shafts Ive seen, and his kit has held up well for me.

AA uses the 241 shaft also.

Yeah, you can drive in front wheel drive as long as you're comfortable with it. It does handle differently. But if you're still running a slip yoke, then without a driveshaft in the hole, you're gonna lose your fluid. Plug the hole before you drive this way.

A fixed yoke is what you have attached to your axle. A slip yoke is what you have on your tcase currently. You want a fixed yoke at both ends ideally.

Yeah, when you lift, you do commonly have to change driveshaft lengths. Not always.

Thanks everyone I'm going with the tom woods and the JB kit. You'll probably see me in here later when I go to put it on. Any helpful hints- something they forgot to put in the manual?
