    Default 05' wrangler X with rubi driveshaft

    I was wondering if I put a sye in my 05 wrangler X if I could use a driveshaft from a 05' rubicon? I have a 3.25 rough country lift and want to eliminate the 1" transfer case drop.

    You'll need to buy a cv driveshaft after you install the sye. The rubi driveshaft has transfer case output is a 4 bolt flange. The sye will come with a yoke output.

    The Rubi shaft should also be 1330 U joints. TJ (non rubi) are 1310 joints. I had the same idea a few years ago. If you were to get a RE hack n tap (with the flange on the end, not the yoke) you may be able to do it. You'll need to get a 1310/1330 ujoint for the rear of the DS to mate up with the rear axle. You'll also have to drill the flange that comes with the H&T kit to fit the flange on the Rubi DS. If it doesn't sound clear, I'll try to explain it better.

    So pretty much just buy the correct CV driveshaft, because eventually I want a bigger lift anyway so instead of messing things up I'll just wait for the bigger lift get the sye and driveshaft then. Thanks for the info.

    Basically, yes. It isn't all that expensive to get a SYE and a cv driveshaft adn get it done the right way the first time. Give Tom Woods a call. You can probably get a complete kit for pretty cheap.
