Yea a good kit will costs some coin $$$, atleast $750 to $1,000.

Like mentioned before it all depends on what you want to do, the type of wheeling etc...

If you buy a cheap kit, that's what you'll get... cheap stuff and cheap components.

Wheel it stock for a little, do your research and see where it takes you.

Yes and no... each Jeep is different. The best way would be yes get the SYE & CV DS.

You can get by with a T-Case drop, which usually comes with it, but I never understood those and why.... especially since you just lifted the Jeep, now your dropping the t-case another inch lower, almost defeats the purpose.

If you get the t-case lowering spacers, you should not need the SYE and CV DS. BUT.....you will be losing some of the height and breakover angle you are trying to gain. Try it without the spacers, and if you need the SYE and CV DS, then go get them.

All the kits these guys are recommending are the ones you want to buy. If you want to build your jeep right the first time then take the advice. You dont wanna end up regretting what you bought and kicking yourself in the ass, saying damn I wish I would have blah blah blah...
And yes if you plan on building your jeep with a lift like the size your looking into, you will need a SYE and CV driveshaft and all that nonsense.

it was said best here....
