Question Jeeper newbie from Nor-Cal

Just recently got into Jeeps at the ripe old age of 39...better late than never. I am about to get a lift kit and was thinking of a 2.5 ProComp kit but after seeing pics of this size, I am considering going with the 4 inch I just want to know if I will need a SYE nd extended drive shafts for a 2.5? Little overwhelmed with all the different stories.

Welcome. The SYE is not needed on all 4" lifts but is recommended. Same with shafts.
