I was wondering how many inches of lift can you add before you need to get a cv driveshaft and/or slip yoke eliminator? I am thinking of going between 4-6 inches with 32-34 inch tires.

Every XJ is different. Generally speaking, once you get around 4" an SYE is necessary...but that's not a hard fast rule. Some need them as low as 2".

If you plan to go between 4"-6"....plan on installing an SYE too.

RE also offers a RE 1822 which I just installed to help those who can't afford a SYE. But mine is an older with 5" of lift and 33s and I have no vibes or problems. Like Steve said every XJ is differant.

I know what a cv driveshaft is and it's purpose but what is a slip yoke eliminator and where does it go?

Ok I saw the pics of the RE sye. Is a slip yoke eliminator for the front driveshaft? Is it's purpose to help reduce vibration? Who sells a cheap one? Is it likely that this will be required before I will need a cv driveshaft when lifting my jeep?

The t-case has what's called a slip yoke...the yoke slips in and out on the ouput shaft. As you lift and the axle is pushed further and further away from the body, the yoke is pulled further and further out of the t-case. An SYE puts a yoke on the t-case output similar to the one on the axle pinion...so a Slip Yoke Eliminator is exactly what it sounds like. Wink
