I only run JE Reel shafts on all my rides. I have always had excellent luck with the products and great service from the company. I know there are other excellent products out there too, like Woods and Coast - but if you are getting a deal on the JE REEL, get it for sure.

Just be sure that the shaft is the proper length for your lift and wheel base. I don't know how built your JK is, but most people with built rigs order shafts custom made to their measurements. Even upgraded complete axles require a driveline mod.

the shaft might be ok, but i saw some 1350 shafts, and the flanges they use are welded 2 piece, my tom woods shafts were thicker and the flanges are 1 piece

like i said, they might be ok, but i would look elsewhere if it were me

Yeah, I talked with him several times before I pulled the trigger, I was wandering about the height and all that cause I have 4 inch rcountry springs in the front and 4.5 rexpress in the rear, so I wasnt sure if they would work he said he had them on his jeep with a 4.5 lift, on the je reel webpage they list them as being able to work with some manufactured lifts to 5.5 but may hamper the life of the shaft, for the price with new dana u joints installed, I think I will be happy, I will post back with pics when I get them....
