need help

Ok here is the deal, I have a friend that has redone a 1988 mj commanche (sp?) He has put new rims and tires on it and the rub a little, so to take care of that he wants to lift it about 2-3". Here is the question, if he lifts it what does he need to watch out for and will he have to drop his transfer case and if he goes 3 in will he have to change his pitman arm and drive shaft? I have found a lift on rusty's off rd. which will seem to work what eles would he have to buy to make this work. oh yea he put 31" 10.50 r15 discovery stt on. any help would be greatfull.
thanks

Lifting a Commanche pretty much follows the same rules as doing an XJ. The problems that we face with short wheelbase jeeps are not as evident with the longer wheelbase vehicles. He'll be fine putting a couple inches of lift into it. Shouldn't have any vibes or problems at all.
