Crown SYE + CV

I've been doing a little research on SYE and I think i narrowed it down to the Crown. The reviews have been positive and the price is good, ~$200. I also need some recommendations for a CV drive shaft, and length. my budget is ~$350.

I run an e-bay special through Tatton's driveshaft.
I have nothing but good things to say about them and they're priced right too.

Tom Wood's
Tatton's
Carolina Driveline

Any of those should be fine.

Or you can have one built by a local drivshaft shop if you have one.

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

See if you have a local driveline shop, if you do, you can get a XJ front shaft at the junkyard for $25, and have it shortened and balanced.

X3 on Tatton, search ebay for SYE CV TJ and you'll find him quickly, he sells a Terraflex SYE kit with his long travel CV shaft for $410 shipped (that's both the SYE and the CV).

His drivelines are a work of art, mine sat on my table in the house for 2 months, I hated to see it go but the Jeep had to have it lol.


Edit: I see he is charging $50 for shipping now, still very worth the price. One of his ebay listings here.

Glad to hear you made a decision! To throw a wrench in the works, I have heard a lot of great stuff about Adam's Driveshaft. My buddy paid $420 for his bolt on SYE and DS. No complaints so far and its beefy
