Yeah I called the customer service for my kit and they said with the transfer case drop I don't need the SYE or CV driveshaft. Although I'm sure like you said it would help

Do you know what your talking about? It comes with the kit and takes no time to install.

When I get 600 bucks for a tom woods sye and cv driveshaft I'll put it in. For a couple weeks it'll be fine. I talked to them for like an hour just explaining everything and even THEY(the people trying to get me to buy their product) said I don't need the parts but it'll help in the long run which is like a month away

So remain calm. LOL

Oh, and by the way...Thanks for posting your pictures.
I'm ordering my Rusty's 4.5" tomorrow. This payday, I finally have enough to add all their skids in with one order. Can't wait!

Rusty's Offroad 1" Drop Crossmember is stronger than stock and has no loss of ground clearance from the original with the drop built into the crossmember itself. It goes on sale periodically for $99

Made of 3/16 steel, pre-drilled for easier installation of our engine - trans skid and our TC skid. It is also available with a 1 inch drop model for better driveline angles without loosing any ground clearance. If used in conjunction with our engine skid plate, new holes will need to be drilled. There is no change on the catalytic converter attachment and we actually recommend cutting that off. Black powder coated for durability.
