    Issue is with that OEM rear drive shaft coming into contact with skid plates on BOTH the carbon vapor canister and the Fuel tank... the boot was damaged by the canister skid plate, and dealer said the drive shaft doesn't move. Well, I have pictures and video of the shaft coming into contact when either of the front tires are up as shown in the picture...

    Why doesn't Mopar replace the rear shaft as part of the kit - like they do with the front shaft? ... or tell you about this problem if you leave the OEM shaft in place ? Any suggestions?

    Is the problem with the 2012-2017? I did not have a problem with my 2007 and it has 4" of lift. I'm also on stock length arms and the stock DS, along with a large HD canister skid.

    How is it hitting both the fuel tank and the EVAP skid? Rear track bar set up right? Also, make sure they installed the rear bump stop extensions.

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.
