Slip yoke eliminator needed?

Just picked up a 95 yj project with a spring over lifted 35 rear. There's no motor, trans, or transfer, but I have a complete 4.0, 5 speed, np231 combo out of a 99 xj sitting on a trailer waiting for a new home. I would like to keep the spring over, but put the rear dana 44 that is also from the xj in it. It's about 5" of total lift. Should I swing the $250 and get a Slip Yoke Eliminator for it? Thanks.

Any difference between the Rough Country and the Rubicon Express SYE?

I went with the Advanced Adapters heavy duty SYE on mine. I never had a single problem with it.

I think the JB Conversions SYE is the best one on the market, that's not to take anything away from AA. Everything else on the market is an AA clone. You will absolutely need one though.

A few bucks more but the super-short version is desirable especially in your case. I wish I’d done that but I bought a Rugged Ridge new in the box for something cheap like $125.

Read on the internet: rough county and rugged ridge are probably the same I had to modify mine extensively like others documented in various places online- the receiver hole inside that’s supposed to allow the selector rod to move was the biggie. Not hard but the quality isn’t there if they can’t even cast and machine it right. The output seal had issues, a factory-installed bearing was incorrectly installed...

I think AA and JB don’t have those issues judging from the lack of problem posts with these brands. Don’t know about Novak
