Drive Line Extension on a TJ

I have a 2in lift right now on my 99 TJ and am looking at putting on a 4in lift.
I wanted to know if i could get away with just a transfer case drop or if I have to extend the drive line.
I dont do extreme wheeling, just trails and stuff of that nature.

Plan on doing everything and then ask yourself if you are willing to spend that much on a 4" lift. Very few people get away with a 4" lift without dropping close to a grand on the SYE, drive shaft & upper control arms.
2000 Sahara, 3.5" Rubicon Express Lift, 1" spring spacer & 1" Body Lift, 33" or 35" BFG Mud tires, Front & Rear ARB, Rancho 9000 shocks, UCF Ultra High Belly Up
