Driveshaft Suggestions for JK with RE 5.5" Lift

Need some help if possible. I am going to buy a RE 5.5" 4-Link Long arm kit for my JK this weekend. I know you need different drive shafts when using this size of lift.

I was just going to do the Rubicon Express suggestions....
Front: RE1810 adapter and RE1883-365 driveshaft.
Rear: RE1805 adapter and RE1887-430 driveshaft.

Are these good options or should I be looking at something different? Thanks for the input!

of course they are going to want to sell you their super cheap driveshafts that are made who knows where.

before doing so, give Adams a call. Tell them what you have and they will know exactly what you need. they custom built me a 1350 shaft for $555 (with no pinion yoke, I already had that) and the best part is it was on my jeep within 48 hours of making the call. still cant figure out how that happened....

I also have a tom woods and I can speak very highly of it.

driveshaft building is best left to companies that only build driveshafts, IMO

Agreed^

I picked up a 1310 front driveshaft from Oliver's about a month or two ago. They have a very knowledgeable staff and the quality of the product speaks for itself, if your in the market they're worth looking into

Question for the OP, why so much lift height? 5.5" is awfully high for these JKs
