Manufacturer Tom Wood's Custom Drive Shafts
Recommended Yes: 21 / No: 0

Slip Yoke Eliminator, SYE, Tail Shaft Conversion, Fixed Yoke Kit,.... Call it whatever you want...If you want the Strongest & Most Versatile Kit Available, This is the Kit for You!

This conversion kit accepts the widest variety of drive shaft sizes and types.

Similar to most other heavy duty conversions but is made to run our unique flange. This allows for the installation of drive shafts in a 1210, 1310, 1330 & 1350 series drive shaft with a conventional two joint or CV (Double Cardan) drive shaft. The kit also allows you to use a 1410 series conventional two joint drive shaft. All without ever having to change the flange!

Who knows where your vehicle will evolve? With our conversion, you're not limited to one drive shaft size or type. This flange also allows for the convenient mounting of a park brake rotor if you ever need or want.

WE GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL NEVER BREAK THE OUTPUT SHAFT OR FLANGE!
This is an unheard of guarantee! If your Tom Wood's Custom Drive Shaft 231 Super-Duty output shaft or output flange ever breaks as a result of excessive torque or shock load, we will replace the broken parts or refund the price of the conversion, and we will also pay you $100!*
WE'RE THAT CONFIDENT!

Pros fast delivery, great service from tom wood, quality product and guarantee
Cons lock/snap rings are tricky even with the correct tools
Recommended yes

Comments: Great product, $545 included the drive shaft price might have changed as web page says $575 ... easy to install, that is similar instructions as other SYE kits. I am very pleased with the product. If you decide to intall yourself make sure you have a lock/snap ring removal tool see http://4x4xplor.com for a write up.

Pros Same install as any SYE. Super strong flange, brand new (not reman) mainshaft.
Cons None.
Recommended yes

Comments: I paid for the cheapest TW reman SYE kit, but they were out and sent me this instead. Holy cow, what a deal!

Buy yourself a serious pair of lockring pliers. It will make the install so much easier. Also, the new shaft's splines are super nicely cut. This made it really hard to get the oil pump on because everything had to be lined up PERFECTLY. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, just an installation note. I had to re-RTV my TC a few times after not being able to get the oil pump on the shaft.

This is probably the best and strongest SYE kit on the market. The 32-spline shaft is beefy, the rear housing is stout and nicely machined, and the kit came with everything you need except tools and RTV. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat, even at full price. =)

Pros stronger, more durable, easy to install
Cons the price, only because I hated having to pay for such a cost and having my Jeep down for 2 weeks
Recommended yes

Comments: After blowing up my stock shafts, I went with Tom Wood for the SYE. Him and his company are great to deal with and I have faith that his products won't break as easy.

Pros NO MORE VIBRATIONS...was blowing thru u joints like it was my job. So smooth...gotta do it.
Cons None...the jeep runs like a charm now!
Recommended yes

Comments: Killer set up and real happy. I only put on a rubicon 2.5" lift and got much more than 2.5...at least 3.5. Put on Xeon flat flares...so much room...the 32s look too small. Need to get 33s so probably putting the 32s on the market.
