4" pro comp stage 1 lift

Hey all, I just recently purchased a 2012 wrangler 4 door unlimited..I've been looking into the pro comp 4" stage 1 lift with mx 6 shocks. My question to anyone who has this lift is what other modifications need to be done to use this lift? Drive shafts, exhaust, sye.. Etc. any help would make this new jeepers day!

There are better kits out their then procomp. First, let me ask you why you want to go 4"? That is a lot of lift, and you would have to change a bunch of parts to run 4" safely. I would highly recommend looking at Rock Krawler and Teraflex 2.5" kits. You can run 35" with both kits no problem and you will get a more complete kit. Also, the Procomp kit does not come with adjustable control arms or trackbars which are crucial for proper alignment on a 3" or higher lift. Plus, procomp kits are known to ride stiff.

Would I have to to do any other mods such as drive shafts or exhaust to use the 2.5" kit? I really appreciate the advise as I am new to all of this

Also would you suggest using the teraflex shocks or would it be better to buy the kit without shocks and buy shocks separately

Since you have a 2010 model, you would just need an exhaust spacer to clear the driveshaft. Teraflex makes a simple kit: Teraflex 2610000 - Teraflex Exhaust Spacer Kit for 2012 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK with 3.6L - Quadratec

The shocks are really up to you. Bilsteins are great shocks for on road and off road. I am running them on my Jeep and they absorb street bumps great. Someone that actually has the Teraflex shocks could give you a better opinion on them then I can.

Either way though, the Teraflex kit is good for the money and you won't be disappointed.
