from memory it shouldn't since it comes with sye.

only 1 way to find out, instal the lift and take the rig around the block with out the tcase drop. If you feel vibrations then install it if not then be happy. lol

The Rubi has a flange on the rear output not an yoke. You might not need a t-case drop, but a double jointed drive shaft will help. Also recommended are rear upper adjustable control arms.

You should be able to adjust the pinion angle to get rid of the vibration with adjustable control arms.

If you have to ask what it is or what it does, you don't need it, and you will need help to install it!

i had 3.5 RE springs (3.5" RE coils are about 4" compared to others coils) in my rubicon with stock control arms in the back and stock driveshaft. no vibrations and the tcase was not lowered. Drove it that way for a long time and is a daily driver. Try it and find out
