Rough Country SYE & CV Shaft

I was looking around for a SYE & CV Shaft combo that I could get while trying to save some money and I saw that Rough Country has a SYE & CV Shaft for TJs. I was wondering if anyone has used either one and what they thought of it. I can get them for about $425 total, so if its a good setup I'll probably end up getting them for when I do my lift right away instead of putting it off and seeing if I have vibrations.

That is a great deal. I payed $237 for my Rugged Ridge Mega Short SYE and $200 to have an older waggy front shaft shortened and rebuilt.

I work for a company that is a dealer for Motor State Distributing, so I would be getting it through work at wholesale cost. Thats actually how I found out about Rough Country, by looking through what companies I can get a discount on. Then I found the RC 3.25 TJ lift which is a setup exactly what I was looking for. Also the RC website is set up great and helped me decide what other options I want to get with the 3.25 lift.
