Parts I would need to go to a 4" lift?

So I'm on a tight budget but I want more lift so I was thinking about adding two inch coil spacers to my 2inch suspension lift, what parts would I need besides the pucks?

Probably better off with a 1" body lift for 3" lift then adding 2" spaces to a 2" suspension system. Do you have a SYE?

I was planning on putting a 1 inch body lift to it as well....I don't have a sye though, would I really need it for 4" of lift though? i'm 18 so my budget is pretty tight.

Seems to be at 4" and above. Some get away without a SYE and shaft with 4" with a 1" motor mount lift and a transfercase drop, or you can do the body lift with motor mount lift to get close for alot less hassle.

Annything over 3.5'' requires an SYE. I believe there is a cheaper SYE kit available from roughcountry for $199.00

Heres the link Off Road Store: Slip Yoke Eliminator Kit (SYE) and optional Custom CV Driveshaft - Rough Country, Rough Country Suspension Systems, 50-7906

I kinda feel like saying a SYE is "required" is misleading and not correct. I know folks personally and I know of people on this site that have 4" of lift and are doing fine without a SYE.

Why can't he do a transfer case drop?.....

Or, how bout the RE Hack n Tap??

Product: RE1807 - SYE KIT CV TJ, 96+ XJ/ZJ - Rubicon Express

Install (This one is on an XJ..provided this link to give an idea of whats involved): Hack 'N Tap SYE Installation

Just a thought...considering the low budget and all.

This doesn't seem like a bad deal...do you know if the extended driveline listed at the bottom of that page is required?

Wouldn't need new control arms, but would need either an adjustable track bar or a track bar relocation bracket (way cheaper)

Chirsb0108 is right on. Adjustable CA's and Track bars make it really nice but are not necessities. I am running about 4.5" of lift and have gotten by w/out a SYE. I plan on adding that in the next year or so but have been ok w/out it. I think the adjustable CA's help since I can adjust the angles of the driveline and axles a little more.
