Pros proper angles are restored. The transmissions sits where it originally was and in turn shifts smoother. The tcase no longer leaks. a much smoother ride.
Cons none
Recommended yes

Comments: I love this mod. I was able to return my trans to its original position and in turn the driveline angles have been restored to the proper orientation. A much smoother ride, smoother shifting, and much stronger parts. No more leaking transfer case and no more slip yoke. Everthing is on there tight and won't be falling off like my original shaft and slip yoke. Could not be more happy with this.

Pros Easy upgrade to make.
Cons The rear output seal went after a 1,000 miles. This was due to a rough spot on the yoke. It may have been damaged during shiping however it was easly repaired using sand paper and i have had no issues since then.
Recommended yes

Comments: Inspect the surface of the Yoke to ensure it is smooth. Mine was damaged however I do not think this was due to manufacturing. I think the cause was either shipping or me.

Pros No vibrations!
Cons None so far.
Recommended yes

Comments: So far, I'm very impressed with the SYE/DS. Good quality and fixed my vibration problem. I have a Dana 44 from an old CJ that has the pumpkin off center to the passenger side about 3 inches. Also the brackets that were welded on were positioned for a different TJ which I believe had a higher lift than mine. Was causing some serious vibration problems (enough to break a universal joint). This kit fixed the problem.

Pros Eliminated all driveline vibrations created by the 4" lift. Eliminated the need for the T/C drop and relocation brackets and returned everything back to stock locations.
Cons NONE
Recommended yes

Comments: Fairly easy install. I did remove the T/C from the Jeep to do it, was much eaiser out on the bench. Customer service from Tom Woods was A+++. Had a few questions on the driveshaft and he was very quick to respond with any help and answers needed!

Pros Easy to install in your garage, more solid connection from T-case to Diff.
Cons none yet
Recommended yes

Comments: I broke my slip yoke on my first outing, cost me nearly $1500 between towing and repairs. Now I know I have a better system with the Advanced Adapters SYE and a Tom Woods CV Shaft, but I'm still cautious.

Pros Great quality and price
Cons None
Recommended yes

Comments: Don't even considering lifting your TJ without installing these parts. No vibration with these upgrades. Will need to consider adjustable upper rear control arms

Pros Strong, well built
Cons The paint on the driveshaft comes off very easily.
Recommended yes

Comments: Output shaft was very heavy and well built, the machining was very high quality. The drive shaft was really beefy and probably about 5 times as heavy as the stock one. The only complaint i have about the driveshaft is that the paint on it comes off really easily. Just handling it, a bunch of it came off.

Pros No more vibrations.
Cons None
Recommended yes

Comments: After lifting my TJ with a 3in lift I started noticing vibrations at highway speeds. I was changing U-joints pretty often. I picked this kit because it had great reviews. It took a day to install and was a good learning process for me. The instructions were pretty clear. The vibrations are gone and I have a smooth ride now.
