The SYE is installed in the jeep. Going to get it after I get outa class


Than hopefully put the front shaft in back. If not I'll run to a local driveshaft shop and get one made up if it's not to expensive

honestly i am really confused about the whole stock front shaft thing. i have heard from everywhere you can use one for an sye, but i can tell you for a fact that on my xj and my dad's xj a stock front ds is about 4" too short. both are 5 speeds with the np231 so maybe that has something to do with it.

Ageed. I haven't tried yet but it looks really short... I'll have to try it when I get home Monday.

Tried the front shaft. It worked so its in there now. Drive the jeep to school for the first time in 2 weeks lol still has a vibe, but shimming the rear will take care of that



Also screwed the e-brake cable to the floor. Will post pics later lol

Sell u this one... I'm REALLY disappointed in the RC lift. It rides like ****ing ****. The back is so stiff it will chirp 2nd gear and the front is super soft. And doesn't flex at all. I flexed out the front in 2wd on a small grass hill.


Really disappointed. Sad to see a good company have **** made in china and ruin it.


Gonna see if I can get my $ back, yes I'm that upset with it...

You got their 4.5" kit right? If I remember right, it comes with 4.5" springs and uses stock shackles. That's makes the shackle angle less than optimal and the reason for the harsh ride.

It's more than that. They don't even budge going off a curb. I just hit a pot hole and it bounced me into another lane and got death wobble. Gonna call tomorrow and c if I can get my $ back. If not jeep is getting sold.
