I was curious if any one has opted to get the canyon crawler upgrade on the 1350 je reel. Is it necessary? If I understand right it has a beefer spline and cost a extra $150. I have a jku 2012..going to run 35s now and maybe 37s in the future.

they use thicker tubing as well. I'd go for it

I have a 12'... so half the reson I'm changing the dline is to clear the y pipe? How much bigger is it . I know WOL used the 1350 does he have the upgrade?

I have a '12, 4" lift, 35s and went with 1310s. No clearance issues. If you know you are going 37s the 1350 is probably a good idea. If not, it's probably not necessary. That said, there is plenty of clearance with the 1310 and I can't imagine there would be any with the other. WOL will probably chime in as well with a better answer.

we run je reel 1350's on our 12 and do not have any problems.

I understand that the 1350 works fine. I was asking who has the canyon crawler upgrade? Is it worth it..The tube is larger on that option; how much affect does it have on the clearance of the y pipe? BTW I have the jku 6spd. So the tcase is farther back; doesnt that take away some clearance when it come to the y pipe and new shaft?

If you are going to run a short arm lift, get the upgrade for the rear driveshaft. With the length of the JKU the rear driveshaft gets rock contact on ledges from time to time. 1310s on a lifted JKUR is a waste of money.... I know. As far as the front goes, I would get a little contact on the crossover pipe. my set up flexs about as far as any shortarm can. Longarm lifts do not seem to have the problem as often.

yes, having a 6-speed will take away some of your clearance and that might be reason enough to not get the upgrade. while nice, it's not really necessary as if you're gonna have a drive shaft failure, it'll most likely happen at the u-joint and 1350's are pretty tough.

That's what I was thinking I see the 1350 on rigs that are in alot of demanding situations and I don't think mine will see the much stress as I have seen 1350 take.

...so the cc upgrade for me is not really nessasary I'm going to run 35s in fact 1310 would work too probably but I'll still 1350s.

I called JE REEL today and asked about the 2012 drive lines and what the canyon crawler upgrade is. He said it was a thicker tube but its not any bigger in diameter. He also said it should clear the y-pipe up to a 6" lift on manual trans (2012). Just thought I would share the info.:beer:
