Zone 4" lift

Alright so I've got my zone lift ordered should be in this week, going to run it with the T/c drop for the time being SYE in a month or two.
My main question right now is what's my best option to go SYE/CV. I don't want to pay out the *** for a Tom woods although I know it's the best and I'm not a welder. Is any one running the Ebay SYE CV kits? Or is there another kit that I haven't come across yet?

SYE is about $150 for the cheapest one. You might be able to do a "hack n tap" cheaper, but I would not recommend it. You may be able to find a transfer case with an SYE already installed for a good price. Then you can sell your existing t case. You might save a little money doing it this way, but it could also turn into a big headache.

Driveshaft: new Tattons is about $250 or so, which is slightly cheaper than Tom Woods. Tom Woods is great, and I don't mind spending the extra money with them. I get great advice when I call them, and have been very pleased with all the driveshafts I have gotten from them.

Some people will recommend shortening a front XJ driveshaft to use in the rear of your YJ. It works for some people, but it really depends on your local driveshaft shop, and the condition of the XJ driveshaft that you buy. You can see my thoughts on that here:
