    I have a 3.5 inch lift on a 2000 tj. Can this product be installed to eliminate the vibration when starting from a full stop without a sye?

    • Hello, It would be our recommendation that you go with an SYE kit or you would still see DL vibration.

      Heavy duty

      I have a 2 inch Puck lift on my tj. This fits like a glove. Did an sye and got this drive shaft. It's heavy nice welds and balanced nicely. Took away all the vibrations I had when doing 70.

      Unusual experience

      Good part, strong and sturdy. Problem is, I installed a SYE kit, this shaft, and all 8 adjustable control arms. And the jeep felt like it was about to fall apart at 40 mph. The vibrations were unbearable. I took the shaft to a driveline shop near me, they inferred that it was incredibly out of balance. Not something I wanted to deal with AFTER paying $550 for the part. I'm getting the part back today, will update after reinstallation of driveshaft.

      Great product!

      Easy enough to install and works great. Just put a 6 inch lift on my 99 TJ and needed this as well as an SYE. Driveshaft has plenty of grease fittings and looks to be made very well. I'm very pleased with this product.

      Nice heavy duty driveline

      Only had it for a day but it's definitely a nice heavy duty driveline, plenty of grease fitting too!

      Extreme off-road parts

      Nothing will explain extreme strength like a Omix driveshaft with u joints and perfect fit and I can not wait to find mud.
