sye/ cv before lift, problem?

i havent read of anyone installing the sye/ cv before their lift, i dont personally see that there would be a problem in doing this, perhaps the driveshaft not fitting primarily, but is there something im overlooking and the lift is needed before the drivetrain should be messed with?

There isn't a problem with it. The rubicons have a fixed yoke from the factory. You just have to get the correct length driveshaft and when you lift you have to get another driveshaft.

You are best off waiting until you do the lift.

That way you can get the correct length driveshaft for your lift height.

And since the SYE is not required at stock height, there is no reason to rush it or spend the money on it at this point.

so pull the rear shaft, put the SYE in, and drive in 4hi until you get either a lift or a TT skid.

Mail crawling.

ok, under 4 hi, do i need to keep it under 60 mph or so?

lol no idea what length i ordered, i called up adams driveshaft in utah and ordered a rugged ridge sye, and they asked for the year of jeep and size of lift and said they would custom make it and send it out, now its here and chillaxin.

So game plan goes as so.........

save up, order lift kit ........ install kit, leave rear shaft disconnected........ take to tranny shop and have the sye/cv installed....... work????

If you can install a lift you can install a sye/cv. No need for tranny shop.
