Body lift help

Just put in a 1.25" body lift. Do I need to modify any of the transfer case stuff? It seems to be ok. The kit says only if I have a transfer case drop kit. How would I know if I had one? The previous owner did the 4" suspension lift. Thanks

Body lift kit is Rough Country
4" suspension lift is Rubicon Express

Dont know if that is relevant

If the previous owner did a 4" suspension lift, chances are he also did a Slip-yoke eliminator mod as well, meaning you don't need to drop your transfer case for that small of a body lift. Check to see if you have a u-joint knuckle coming directly out of the back of your T-case (This is the replacemnet to the rear shaft gear for a SYE kit).

I do have the slip yoke eliminator. the last guy did put one on. Damn gf has my camera so I'll have to get that tonight. I'll check to see if it will stay in 4 low. Its an auto so there is no problems with shifting

You should be fine. You are basically doing the equivalent of a 1" body lift on a stock TJ which does not require a T-case drop.
