Chris,
I have been anxiously awaiting for your trials. I'm wanting a TT (am on the waiting list for the modular version), and was concerned about the rear DS angle. I also have the Tattons shaft with 4" spring lift on 35's. Was worried about vibrations and all...

What about shifter linkage? Any pics of your shifter after bending?

My buddy took one of those drop t-case adapters you get with a lift and turned it upside down and put a brass pushing in it. Its works as good as stock if not better! I`ll post a pic in a few. And I have no driveline vibes with my 17 inch Tatton shaft.
Took it up to 90mph on the interstate cause my test drive was going that good. Woods test today. I did put a limiting strap on the rear from the top 2 dif bolts to the cross member because the driveshaft binded a little at full droop. We did have to call Matt cause we were to dumb to figure out the Rubi pump mount. He answered the phone as always. The only complaint I got was from the UPS man! lol
And as far as my shifter, after I drove it I left it where it was cause I kinda liked it. So I didnt even bother bending it. Its closer to the dash but its not like my hand hits or anything.

OK, here's an off-the-wall question...

Would it be better to do a SYE or just find a used Rubicon transfer case to do a tummy-tuck?

(It's my understanding that the Rubi transfer cases already have the SYE.)

The 241OR has a fixed output shaft, so yes it doesn't need an SYE. It would be nice to have one for the 4:1 low range, but typically they're hard to find, expensive if you do find them, and a bit larger so tucking them up with a TT can be a bit harder. If you can find a good deal on one I'd say go for it, but they're typically not cheap. The only ones I've seen under $1000 are not local and would cost a good bit to ship. Pirate4x4 has some occasionally, might want to keep an eye out over there.

Good luck.

The 4" RC kit doesn't come with progressive rate coils, only their 2.5" kit does.

When I bought it they said it did. Also when the shock bushings kept falling out they told me to go buy more their only 25 cents each. Screw Rough Country!

I agree with this. Love mine! Actually glad I went with this one instead of the Savvy version. One thing that would be great though would be for you guys to make an "add on" cross brace that holds up the TC when dropping the skidpate. Looking it over Im surprised you guys haven't made one available yet. Would love to hear that you guys are going to have one down the road in the near future, or have one in the works.

As previously posted, the 241s don't show up often and usually priced stupidly when they do. 231s with a SYE already done show up probably more often and prices are usually reasonably. Swapping one 231 for another should be pretty easy. Just make sure input shaft is right length. I need to convert my SYE to a SS SYE and keep hoping I get lucky and find one for sale local with the SS SYE done already.

Thanks Bio...

Can someone elaborate on the difference between a standard SYE and a SS SYE? Short shaft? Huh?

(It sucks being stupid!)

Super short slip yoke eliminator.

This version allows a longer drive shaft. And hence, less steep of a driveshaft angle, and also will allow for more axle droop.
