I have a question I have 4" springs with a t-case drop on my 01 Sahara. I have a no body lift skid that I would like to install with an Advanced Adapter sye kit. Do you think I will have any issues with vibes? Should I be looking at a super short sye instead of a standard sye?

Well it says its not needed I really don't think you will have any problems. But make sure you get a CV shaft with that SYE. And of course rear uppers to adjust the pinion. But from I have seen the no body lift version is not a huge difference on the stock skid maybe an inch to an inch and half more but I think you should be ok. If you don't have any vibes right now with that TC drop then I'm sure you will be ok because if you can get away with that 4" lift and a TC drop then your driveline probably isn't to messed up.

I'm thinking about getting the ucf TT and want to know what kind of exhaust modification I'll have to make to my lj rubicon to fit the ultra high clearance skid? I know I need other stuff such as the adjustables, CV shaft, novak transfer case shifter etc.. but I just want to know what is involved in adjusting the exhaust.. thanks

to adjust the exhaust i needed to cut the hanger on the trans mount and relocate it. really simple task.

the better question is what trans do you have? if you have the auto, prepare for a lot of custom fitting and you will def need a BL. I have done a ton of things to mine to get the UHC and LOPRO to work, and my exhaust still rubs

I don't have a welder so the relocation of the exhaust hanger would have to be a shop job, although I can't see it costing too much

no welder needed, a saw or grinder and a drill. there are a bunch of write ups on it and i think some pics in this thread

you'll have to worry about the big np241 and relocating your locker pumps

Alright thanks, you wouldn't happen to know about where those 2 specific things are would you? I don't want to have to look through 100 pages if somebody else has already done it :P

Decide to go with the Savvy underarmor, and it's on backorder, but am hoping it will ship this week. I just received my metalcloak rear uppers and am very impressed with them. Will be getting the TW driveshaft in this week as well so with the novak shifter cable that's coming with the skid I should be covered.

Finally got to doing mine, bought all the materials last summer but then I was traveling for work constantly and moving at the same time. Decided it needed to get done so got to it today. I still need to make a new skid, have a piece of aluminum I picked up last summer just need to drill and get it in place. Also need to paint it and rebuild the exhaust which I wanted to anyway. Unfortunately on the test drive I pulled the front shaft a part, apparently it is no longer long enough so I need to sort that out. When I did my super short SYE late last summer I built the shaft based on the tuck (know I would have no time to take it off road) so that is now perfect length.









I forgot to take pics of it in place once it was all done, phones out in the shop and I need to get home to walk the pups so I'll post up those later.

Don't quote me on this, but I think the front shaft off of an XJ might solve your problem. Anyone have any in put on this??

yup, an XJ or ZJ front CV shaft can be modified to fit in the rear of the TJ w/ NP231+SYE.
