3.5" lift kit

I am thinking of buying a 3.5" lift kit, but I have two questions about it first. Would I need an SYE and CV-shaft with a 3.5" lift. Also, does anyone know if this might be too much lift with 31" tires?

You may need a SYE you may not.. each jeep is different.. as for too much lift...I drove mine around with 30's and 5.5 as it was a daily driver and the 33's swampers I had killed me on the 50 miles drive to wor, looked odd but it was okay.

thats what im running now, and it looks a little bit small, but still looks great. Also the 31's will be polite on your engine/axles.

you should do a sye kit if you want it totally right, but you could get away witha big transfercase drop kit, but then you run into other problems (shifting mostly). I have a 4.5 on my jeep and have the belly pan totally stock with a sye kit and adjustable upper arms to help angle.

I got away with it. (One of the happy few )

But atm i'm waiting for UPS to deliver my new control arms.
The SYE/CV is simply a better setup as Tkfernau said.

The advantage for me was I could drive around with my lift while saving for the SYE/CV kit.
Instant human...just add coffee.

My ride: a happy 1997 TJ.
