Rubi w/4" RE long arm lift installed question

My friend is serious about buying a Rubicon with a 4" Rubicon Express long arm lift. The question is, how difficult is it to get to the tranny and transfer case ? To change fluids, change the clutch ? Thanks.

Just a few more bolts, nothing major.

Unless it has one of the earlier kits that were all one piece skid and didn't have a center section that unbolted. Then it will add an hour to your service time removing your skid. Just have him look under the skid and look for the 17 counter sunk allen head bolts then he will know.

That's exactly what we did and it does have a center plate, that's pretty cool. He's really juiced to buy this ride but he just can't make himself commit.

This ride is running 35x12.50's on steelies. I've read that adds a lot of weight, could that lead to axle problems? I believe every thing else is stock, shouldn't the rear diff be re-geared? Again, he's only going to be mall crawlin. Thanks
