Drive Shaft?

If i put 4 inches of lift on my 2010 Jeep wrangler 4 door with 35inch tires will i need to replace the OE Drive shafts or will the OE still work fine?

It would be best to replace it. OE will work fine for a little longer, but it'll be more safe and reliable if you go ahead and replace.

Go with a 3" lift. It will clear 35s and wont leave your stock driveshaft at a critical angle.

agree w/ zombie... i gotta zone 3"clearing 295/70/18's (equal to a 34) w/ no problems and didnt have to do anything to the drive shafts or even the gearing for that matter.
