I no it's not cheap. But like I said I need the jeep ready for wed. And that price also includes shunning the rear to set the pinion angle.

shimming the rear is the easiest part

Just got off the fone with the shop that did my SYE. $385. much cheaper than i was expecting!!! and they said my front DS is going to be to short to use short of my life to short of a shaft hahaha


anyways here are some more pics f the jeep next to my dads stocker on 235s



might pull another frotn DS from another xj and get it cut to length at a local shop or something? or should i just bite the bullet and get a tom woods?

It looks good. I still can't stand the look of the rims that are on it right now. And when you get better rims you got to get some meaty tires to fill the wheel wells. But it is looking good.
