Not a very good chance, but it's a function of which skid you're installing.

Well, located source of DW. Boy do i feel stupid. Forgot to tighten front LCA where oil pan skid attaches. Its the little things that matter.
I definetly would go with cable shifter and wish i had it yesterday.

Imped is that right on the two degree difference or did I get some bum scoop.

Rubiconchris i did not need the lopro mount but it might of been nice to have.

Wow, I'm a member. Thats not the word I'm normally called.

You want the pinion inline with the drive shaft, such that the u joint is seeing no angle. The -2 degrees statement is accounting for axle wrap when on the gas. If you've got some deflection from the bushings in your control arms, you'll have a little axle wrap. If you're running rod ends or JJ's at all ends, you'll have virtually none.

In other words, you're fine where it's at.

Is there a differance in the rear Tatton driveshaft for my Rubicon and the Tom Woods shaft besides the price. I`ve read good reviews on Tatton shafts both come with spicer 1330`s. This Belly up project is costing a bundle and I need to save anywhere I can. Thanks

Tried to call ucf but got voicemail and no call back So i pulled it off and welded a tab to the bottom, then drilled a hole lowering the pivot point. This worked out well and the TC shifts like its suppose to. I modded my skid row oil skid and bolted it up to the ucf. Then adjusted rear uppers and lowers. I started with a Ds angle of 18, no vibes. It was now 25. So i adjusted it down to 22 at ds and 20 at pinion. Two degrees difference is what i had read so i thought i would be ok. But now i have vibes and terrrible Dw. I parked it and started crackin beers. BTW I did nothing to the exhaust yet. It is snug. Also the steering feels kinda strange when I turn to the left.

Sorry I missed your call. I've been on vacation for the last week.

I tried to call you back today and got your VM. Please call me if I can help.

The UHC (Ultra High-Clearance) skid will require a SYE of some kind unless it's installed with no suspension lift. You may need a Super Short or Mega Short model if you try to install it with over 3" of SL. Your specific situation will dictate that.

Thanks,

No problem, everyone needs family time. Today I had to work overtime so not much of a chance to work on it. I tightened up the front LCA, it really wasn't that loose. I drove it to the store and it still tried to DW on me. The exhaust is making an awful racket. Taking it in tomorrow to get that fixed.

Gonna trade out my crappy ProComp Xterrains for the new MTR's I have.

Thinking about trying to lower the DS angle some more, to get closer to the 18 degrees I had with no vibes.

I have come to the conclusion, after reading multiple threads on this, I actually know a lot less than I thought I did.

The good thing about TW is that Tom stands behind his product. Unless you turn the thing into a banana on the trail, he'll figure something out to help you. Usually it's "send it back and we'll take care of it", and it is not at all uncommon for him to split the cost of repair when the situation is completely the consumers fault.

I have never dealt with Tatton, however I would venture a guess there is a very strong difference in customer service. There are only a handful of companies out there that have seen the success that TW has and to this day the owner himself still answers the phone. Give them a call any given day of the week M-F and you're likely to have Tom answer and phone. What you'll find during your conversation with him is a person who actually cares about each and every customer he has. People are beating down that mans door for driveshafts and he has plenty of business, yet he'll spend twenty minutes on the phone with you answering all your questions, and even just having general conversation.

Not because he wants your money or wants to make a sale, but because he cares about you, and he doesn't even know you.

Just my opinion on Tatton's!
I have ordered from them twice now. When I call, I get Curtis himself on the phone, and so I beleve their customer service is the same as TW. Shipping is fast, and like you said, the products appear the same. Warranty appears the same. I have never heard bad from either place, so why not save some money where possible.

There are other shops out there that have the same (and some better) rep as TW. Tattons is one of them.

Thanks for your input, like I said I have not dealt with Tattons. Good customer service is one way to win my business, and get me to recommend you to others, and that's what I do with TW after my experiences.

Thanks for the replies on Tatton and Tom Woods. Its nice to here good things about companys standing behind their products. I dont mind spending the cash as much when I want to give someone my buisness.

So I also want to purchase the Novak shifter cable and install it and the driveshaft before I purchase the Transfer case skid to cut down on the install time. Is this a bad idea? Its my daily driver and dont want to tie it up more than a day.
