My splines are "whooped"

I recently got my sye and driveshaft put in and was told my splines are pretty whopped. I want to start builing up my rear axle a little and want to start with my splines. My question is will this part fix it?

Are they talking about the splines on you Driveshaft or your axle shafts? If the splines on the axle are shot, it likely means that the splines on the side gears/spider gears (part #16) are in need of replacement as well. Be a great time to upgrade to a locker or depending on how you wheel and tire size, a more stout axle.

Well i currently have 35x12.50s and stick to mud pits and country trails that are mostly just good for the views. I was thinking about getting either a limited slip, or selectable lockers once i go to 33's. Regearing would cost alot more money right? I know you didnt suggest it but its something i want to do in the long run anyways.

Btw i bought this jeep with no knowledge and didnt realize all the advice the original builder went against. Luckily he didnt go much farther then rims/tires and the lift.

And about the axle or driveshaft part, im not entirely sure. I thought he said axle. Do you know if the mechanics would come across both splines during the install of the sye and rear driveshaft? I assume they would

No reason to open up the rear diff just to bolt on a drive shaft.

yes, if all it was was an SYE then it is the drive shaft splines. what shaft did you use for your SYE, as it would have required a new/different drive shaft other than stock?

I got the rough country cv driveshaft because when i bought the jeep the rough country sye came along with it and i didnt want to worry about different brands not fitting. If it breaks im going for a tom woods sye and driveshaft im pretty sure.
