2.5 teraflex lift new driveshaft???

So i have a 2013 Sport 2dr. I recently purchased Teraflex 2.5 lift with Bilstein 5100 shocks. Along with Quick Disco's and Exhaust Spacer.

Will I need a new driveshaft for this lift? I went in thinking i wasnt going to need a new one... I dont plan on doing rock crawling. Just want to do some light/medium wheeling...

I thought i researched everything and I keep reading and i thought it was anything over 2.5 than you have to replace driveshafts?

I don't believe you need to. I didn't on my JKU. I did have to move a skid plate over that tore the boot on my rear drive shaft.

The purpose of the exhaust spacer is to prevent contact with the front DS and exhaust.
You may or may not have future issues disconnected off road.
The rear is fine on a 4 door.

Oohhh ... Jk. TF coils won't give you a bolt load of lift so I wouldn't worry. Just keep an eye on the front with the extended shock travel.
