    But Keep in mind after you have the SYE installed you can put it in 4WD and drive with just the front wheels to get around.
    You can? I thought this was always frowned upon in Jeeps. Not really sure where I got that idea from but it was planted in my head. I did that In a full size bronco for a few day and had no issues with it. I am thinking that doing the SYE and having a shop here in town do the shaft will be a better option. that way if it breaks, is too long still, or isn't balanced right they will be closer and easier to reach than having to send it in the mail.

    Only time that driving in FWD would be a big issue would be without a SYE - since you'd be puking transfer case fluid out of the rear output.

    Or if you have a front auto locker it could be an issue. If you are open up front or have a selectable locker you are good to go. This is actually a benefit of doing a SYE: you can drive home if you break the rear on the trail

    It will be a handful to drive in front wheel only. Smooth and light on throttle isn't bad. Get on skinny pedal and is e-ticket ride.

    Depends on the year, TJs and later are fine without the rear shaft in place.

    I have a YJ, no SYE and I can pull my rear drive line and it won't leak transfer case oil even stood on it's rear bumper. Trying to classify jeep types by whether or not they leak oil without the drive line is equivalent to classifying JK owners by the color of their jeeps. You just can't do it.

    That's only because all the fluid leaked out a long time ago Doug.

    Why should the T-case be any different than the other oils?

    Example-

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/JEEP-WRANGL...-/222793448417

    This is what my YJ has in it as well. It makes for a very short rear drive line.

    I think thats what mine has too. My YJ has a spline that went into the transfer case and if it pulled all the way out all the fluid would dump out. I will have to crawl under my tj and double check whats under it.
