It will not affect the transfer drop at all. Since the drop is attached to the frame, which will remain in the same place.
What it will affect is the shifter. If you have a 6 speed its going to drop the shifter another inch lower in the console. Which might create shifting problems. Which can be cures by heating and bending the shifter. If you have an auto, you will have no problems since its cable operated.
Its also going to change the angle of your transfer case shifter. The BL should come with a kit to install to correct that problem. You will most likely have to adjust the linkage, but thats not to bad.

...wow someone else types fast...had to delete..LOL

Fan Shroud, you will need to adjust it unless also installing a Motor Mount lift. The MML would also help your drive line angle, but at 4" without a SYE you would still need the TC drop.

I run that same set up, no issues. You have to unscrew the fan shroud (plastic piece that covers it) and move it up, i think. There are 4 small screws that hold it to the radiator, very simple and the directions should cover it. It will not effect your T-case drop.

You wont need anything like an SYE or cv. The BL will not change your driveline angles. So if you don't have vibes now, you wont have them after teh body lift. What it will change is the angle of the handle that you use to pull into to go into 4 wheel drive. But I think all the body lift kits come with an adapter bracket that will straighten this back out. You will just install the bracket (that comes in the kit) and adjust your transfer case shifter linkage.

Yes, that too.

Right my BL was installed first and came with the bracket. When I installed the lift, it came with a drop bracket as well for the 4wd level. I had to drop it again to the last holes when installing the lift.

What size tires are you planning on running? I would stay away from a body lift. To much BS for 1 inch. Plus it looks dumb
