driveline

on my 82 cj5 they just installed a 4 inch pro comp lift and they said i needed to get my driveline extended. there is a place here in okahoma that does it called driveline specialist or somethin like that so its no big deal to get it done but is that a normal thing to have to do. we just put the same lift on a 92 yj and did not need to do that so i was just curious. thanks, Blake.

Your 5 is quite a bit shorter than the YJ. It depends on how much room you have left in the slip joint. You don't want to seperate it on the trail somewhere. Depending on the angle, look into a CV style shaft also. Usually it's cheaper to build a new shaft rather than lengthen an old one.

1986 CJ7, 4.2 w/4.0 head, TFI-HEI hybrid ignition, Clifford manifold w/Holley 390 w/cold air intake, OBA, 4.5" lift, Woody CV shaft and Tattons in front, 4.10 gears - lunchbox in front, Truetrac in the back, twin-sticked, blower upgrade for running topless, trying to keep it simple.

It's just a Jeep, and if you don't wheel it once in a while, it's not even that.
