Damn, some of my message didn't post. I was wondering what options I have as far as a rear drive shaft to use with an sye. Are there any junkyard shafts that I can make use of? Or am I looking at getting a custom one made?

It's going to be about 6.5". Short bed. 4.0 5 SPD 231. I have been reading about lengthening a Cherokee front drive shaft. Or just have one built at a local shop. I have access to a welder and tubing. So I was thinking of just extending the Cherokee shaft. This is strictly my offroad toy. But, I drive it around town on some days. Vehicle.speed will not be faster than 55.

for super budget. you could buy a zj front driveline (CV/double cardan) from the jyard or craigslist, then take it to a driveline shop like Six States to have it lengthened. you just give them the measurements. it'll probably cost around $90, but they'll balance it and everything.

but you can do that with most any driveline from the j-yard, just make sure it uses the same u-joints and have the shaft lengthened or shortened.

yeah sorry. i guess Six States is west coast only. But it gives you an idea of a good company to look for in your area that does drivelines and such.

Most forums i read for the hackntap sye use the zj front driveline in the rear on xjs, i dont know if its any different than the xj front driveline. but it might be the same. if its not, it might be longer, or beefier for the v8 zj models.

At the moment, the drivetrain is in a 94 XJ. It has a hack and tap and un modified front driveshaft for the rear axle. But, the measured length is 31 closed, 36 fully extended. However, I've been reading the stock length drive shaft of the swb MJ is 42". So I would need one that's 40" collapsed, 46" extended, since the sye moves the Ujoint up 1 inch. I guess I could take a stock from drive shaft and have them extend it. How safe is that though?

they cut off the tube and keep the ends. then they weld on a new tube with a thicker wall. they don't weld on a small section additional length. so i guess as safe as a brand new driveshaft could be.
