Difference is about 3".

Once I swap in the 4" springs that are sitting in my living room those combined with the 3"+ from my Savvy UA and the complication of the LP third member in my 9" means my rear driveline is seeing a lot more than your average lift. That 3" from the SSYE plus some extra grinding/trimming on my yokes and CV joint by Tom Wood will hopefully be enough to keep my rear driveline from binding when rear axle sags.

Quick question...

If I go with an SS SYE now and end up doing a D44 or an 8.8 axle upgrade later, will the new driveshaft be good with the replacement axle, or should I think about doing the whole works at once?

I intend to live forever. So far, so good.

Hey, guys.

I've been saving up for my own LJ tummy tuck and mods (as is obvious from my earlier posts).. and came across this contest to win gear: https://www.facebook.com/poisonspyder. This may seem spammy or goofy to you, but if any of you have already "Liked" Poison Spyder Customs on Facebook and would be willing to vote for me tonight or tomorrow morning, I would be grateful. I was hoping to get in the top-10 and nab a diff cover (I'm #11): Gioia Mia (Medic Barbi). I'm trying to outfit my 4-banger into a wilderness medic jeep.

test fit my ultra high clearance skid today and even with a 1" lift and 1.25" BL a sye is still needed. Driveshaft angle was pretty mean, the protective boot even pulled off its mount. My TC would not go into 4 low as well. Needless to say the old skid went back on.
I have everything ready to go just need to order a DS to do it right. I did discover a transmission output seal leak though, so I get to fix that as well when TC comes out.

Just figured these notes may help someone with similar set up wondering obstacle. I must admit it did look good under there.

Those of us say things like "regardless of coil height, a SYE needs to be on the list" and "the stock linkage will be half-*** at best" aren't just pulling that stuff out of thin air......

Minimizing the drive shaft angle is always ideal. Look into adding the LoPro mount.

Let the record show that I ran a Tcase drop between the frame and TT skid temporarily until I could do it right. I just wanted a flat surface under there instead of the shovel. something to think about.

Had driveshaft planned as soon as jeep was bought. Lifted or not i hate the stock shaft set up. I knew already the shaft would be an issue but buddy wanted to try it while my Jeep was in his shop. Hell rack and tools where there so i was not going to say no. It only took around 15 minutes.

Oh yeah no lopro mount for the auto in my year. May look into what it will take to make one with a buddy of mine. He has plasma and a very nice welder anything is possible.

Here is my Lo Pro Mount and UCF Skid for my 03, manual. UCF makes some real nice stuff. I did not have to do any tub clearancing. I added a 1" MML and 1" BL prior. The only thing I had to change after was the 4WD linkage was biding. So I upgraded to the Novak Cable Shifter and couldn't be happier. The skid is UnderCover Fabworks Extra-Clearance Carbon Steel 3/16" Skid Plate.
