    ^^ Yup. I just had 1-1/2" removed from my JE Reel shaft because of the switch from the stock 44 to a PR 60. My limit straps would not go tight because the driveshaft was binding at full droop (std EVO lever in the rear). Pushed the cap right out of the slip yoke.

    Glad I came across this thread. I had no idea I had to shorten DL. My wife has been driving Jeep around town Monday and today. I was under the Jeep last night and didn't notice anything unusual, so hopefully no damage has been done. I will pull it tonight and take it in tomorrow.

    As a reference, My JE Reel had only about 1/2" of play when sitting at normal ride height. Now there is 2".

    So I got home and took a measurement. I have just over an inch of slip yoke left.

    I bet you were fine driving it around town. Unless your wife was chasing Mel Wade through the desert.

    Yes, I think so as well. I don't know the technical term, but the cap that is at the end of the splice yoke is still there, so the DL never bottomed out.

    And I won't be chasing Mel in the desert anytime soon.

    Just wanted to follow up and let everyone know the outcome. I marked the DL where it was running when it was hooked up. Dropped is and I took the DL into the driveline shop. Driveline shop called and said they would only cut about 1/2" off. They said I would likely be fine for most wheeling. But to be safe I had him cut the 1/2" off. Very reputable Driveline place in Fresno and they only charged me $90 to cut and rebalance.

    After I reinstalled the DL, I re measured and I think they took closer to 5/8", so I have 1 -7/8" in play.

    Great Price

    Wish my local shop only wanted $90 to shorten and rebalance my Reel 1350 for my Pro Rock 80.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
