Not sure. Was going with Tom Wood but that was going to be if I got the Tera SYE/Tom Wood Shaft combo from his site. Decided I would rather have the JB SYE so TW is no longer priority. Just going to shop around when the time comes for the shaft. It's going to be awhile.

Best prices I've found is Carolina Driveline. That's where I got my CV from. They are high quality, and I prefer to give my business to local companies whenever possible.

That's what I originally was going with but several people, including Jake (Jankoid) and Gerald at Savvy, suggested a Super Short SYE since I'm going to have such a high tummy tuck.

They took a loooooonnnnnng time to get back to me. They quoted me about $285, which didn't seem all that stellar when I can get Tom Wood's best shaft for $15 more (Long spline, sealed boot or greasable)

I'm in the same boat. Tattons driveshaft is my vote. $260 shipped, 7" slip spline, and all genuine spicer parts. Plus he returned my email quickly.

Really? Other members of durtyrok with regular TJs have ordered shafts from there and sure didn't pay that much. I only paid $300 for my Rubi LJ shaft with a 1350 CV joint and the Rubi transfer case adapter. They also answered as soon as I called and I had my shaft 2 days later.

i dont know who you talked to at carolina drive line, but you could have gotten the sye and a refurbished and shortened xj shaft all for 300 + shipping. thats what they told me when i called them but i didn't know the length of the shaft i needed at the time. they would know the length you need cause you are at stock wheel base. did you tell them what you were putting it on?

I had to go back through my email. I realized I was the reason the price was so high. I asked for a shaft competitive to the Tom Wood XB shaft. I forgot what I asked them lol.

Seth,
> A 1310 double-cardan, long travel driveline with the protective boot will cost you $248.00 before tax and freight. This is an all-new unit made solely from american components using 2" 0.120 wall tubing and speed-balanced.
> Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
> Thanks!

You will not need a long travel shaft, trust me. It is a waste of money to get that upgrade.

I know. I emailed them back when I was trying to guesstimate the shaft length so I could have all the parts at once. Obviously that was never going to work. But if their long spline shafts are so similar in price as the TW XB shaft, are their base models similar in price too?

Guesstimating shaft length is not a good idea IMO, you can easily measure the distance the sye subtracts wrong and get the wrong size shaft. I would install, then get shaft length

That's the plan.

Not sure, I think they cost around $190-200 but don't quote me on that. Plus they are located in SC, so if you ever had an issue they are close by for help.

So I'm in the same spot right now. Looking to get my SYE/CV setup. Im going with the JB conversions also. So my question to you, did you order direct from their site or somewheres else? When I looked around I couldn't find anywheres else that sells them.
