No, just rear adjustable uppers to set the pinion angle for the SYE/CV.

I'd recommend it because it is inexpensive (comparatively). The construction is crude, the finish is so-so, but it works pretty well. My has been perfectly fine for the 2+ years I've been using it. I ended up welding up the ends of the box steel to keep mud from getting inside but it's not critical.

Ordered from DC4WD.com for a good price.

But if you can get almost any other skid within $50 of the cost of this one then go with a different skid. Honestly, I'm fine with the Go-Fer-It. It's perfectly sturdy for general wheel'n. But other skids are better finished.

Look at what you have in your sig, I think you're good to go. Keep in mind that doing a belly-up skid conversion is the equivalent of adding another 2" lift to whatever you now have in terms of your rear driveshaft. Most driveshafts can probably tolerate a 2" lift change. I'd still watch it but you should be ok.

Good to know, I'll give Dave a call at Northridge and see what he says about the rear drive shaft.
