Question lift concern for 2dr JK sport

Hey all, I have a 2010 2dr JK sport. I remember someone posting a link on a thread (that i cannot find) about how a 2.5 lift is safe on the 2 door, anything over 3 will need to have a driveshaft upgraded. my concern is that if i get a 2.5'' teraflex lift kit and 33's will i need to upgrade my driveshaft too? Also do I need a swaybar disconnects?

Have you thought about a Teraflex leveling kit instead to run the 33's?
Teraflex 1155200 - Teraflex Leveling Kit for 07-11 Jeep® Wrangler & Wrangler Unlimited JK - Quadratec

Some pics with it on 33s..

That black 4 door looks like it's taking a dump.

You should be fine with the 2.5" lift. Here is a link to the article you're thinking of. Fatal Angle Tom Woods JK Wrangler Driveshafts - Jp Magazine

Any bad words about the leveling kit? If not that seems like a kick ass way to get 33s on a JK. I'm really interested.

ESP- that is a good affordable mod that will be considered but for down the line still what about the swaybar disco. and travel of the driveshaft when wheeling over some obstacles (its also my DD and will mainly be on beginner-intermediate trails) and Daggo yes that was the article i was referring to thanks
