driveline angle in a cj5?

i want to put a 4.5" rubicon express lift on my new 80' cj5 and a 1" body lift, but am curious if i have to do any driveshaft or t-case upgrades? any input would be greatly appreciated! thanks


R.I.P one Baddass 92' yj that had 5.5in in the front and 6in in the RR with 33x 12.5's Baja Claws with homemade everything and a whole lot of sweat, blood, and tears that went into her......... But i did just get an 80' cj5 that is getting 4.5in RE, 1in Daystar, bushwackers, winch, and ox lockers, gears, and some meaty 35in BFgoodridge Krawlers.. oh yeah baby

I am sure you will have to adjust your U joint angles. I have only a one-inch lift on mine right now and have 18 degrees at the pinion and experience vibrations at certain speeds. I have a Skyjacker 2.5" kit waiting to be installed and I bought a set of 2.5 degree wedges to lessen the pinon angle. I imagine I will have to lower the transfer case also. I'm running 4.10 gears. Mine is an 80 CJ-5 too.

I run the RE 4" YJ Standard lift on my 80 CJ5. I rotated the pinion up and used a 1" drop on the transfer case. No vibes. I would feel better using a CV shaft though.

is there a SYE kit for the dana 300? cause i've never heard of one, if so, is all i'll need is a cv driveshaft?

No SYE for the D 300. 80 D300's have a short output shaft. So that's as good as it gets. 81 and later D300 have a longer shaft, FYI. Yeah, sounds like you have a CV shaft in your future.

There is no slip yoke to be eliminated on a 300 case.
