6" Suspension Lift and SYE

I am looking at upgrading my 3" lift to a 6". Of course I will be removing my slip yoke and putting in a SYE and a CV shaft (JB Conversions and Tom Woods). My question is, with the 6" lift, will I be able to get rid of my T-case drop kit completely by adding the SYE and CV drive shaft?
I though I read you can loose the drop kit if adding a SYE and a 4" lift; it suggested that anything above 4" would still require a T-case drop; surely this is wrong and that a good SYE would allow a 6" lift.

I have a 6" lift and did not use the drop kit. But I also have the CV and SYE. So I say go for it.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.

I have 5" of lift and a 3.5" belly-up skidplate. The TCs height difference to the pinion yoke is 8.5" more than stock. And that works fine with a SYE and CV DS.
Because of my long 4-spd auto tranny and the longer D44 my DS is very very short. From u-joint to u-joint it´s only 16".
Then you shouldn´t haveany problems with "only" 6" . You can get rid of the TC drop with the SYE.

Install the SYE and the adj. rear UCAs and adjust them that the axle pinion yoke shows to the TC yoke. Then measure the length that your DS should have and order it.

Good Advice, thanks Guys.... I have a way to go yet because I want to make all the mods myself and even with that, I still need to raise the best part of three grand for the hardware (Including 35" Claws).
Any other advice will be welcome. Luckily there is plenty of information online about installing the SYE so I not too worried about it. Installing the lift kit is another matter!! I have to say though that the nine hours it took me to fit my first lift kit was some of the best spent (with the help of Guinness and Pink Floyd).
