    Drive shaft replacement with JL?

    Hey guys asking for a buddy who just purchased the JL and looking at the Evo 3.5 Enforcer stage one with the Kings set up. Being that it's a 3.5 lift will he have to upgrade driveshafts?

    If it's a 2-door, the rear needs to be replaced. If it's a 4-door, possibly but not necessarily. I'm pretty sure the Kings are short enough that the front drive shaft will be okay. So long as you install a rear track bar relocation bracket, the rear drive shaft should clear the gas tank skid as well.

    Thanks Eddie, its a 4 door and I see the Evo kit includes the raised rear track bar.

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.
