Depends on what you're lifting. The only things a modest body lift (1"-1.25") effects in the drive train are the fan shroud, tcase linkage, shifter to console clearance, and fuel tank filler hose. With adjusting the shroud and using the tcase linkage drop bracket that comes with the BL the rest will be fine. If it's in you're budget I highly recommend the Novack cable tcase shifter. It works much better than the stock mechanical linkage. Once installed, the tub/tcase relationship can change whenever required and the cable doesn't care, same great shifting.
As for steering, even with a 1" BL I recommend a 1" steering shaft bearing bracket rise. Look at the upper intermediate steering shaft on a TJ with a BL, particularly the ujoint and rotating grommet at the firewall. They are at pretty extreme angles. We just replaced the upper and lower steering shafts on my son's TJ. They cost $340. The 1" raised bracket is about $40 from M.O.R.E. Or you can modify your own for free like we did.
That's my son's. I will be modifying mine when I install my JKS 1.25" BL this weekend.
