You can drive it like that, your going to get vibration. You can cheat it here and there all day long, but it's never going to be right until you get the SYE and CV drive shaft. It's under $500 out the door, maybe even cheaper if you catch the right sale. Here's a link for a good setup, google it and find some better prices, this one took me 30 seconds to find.
Tom Wood's CV Drive Shaft + Advance Adapters HD SYE [TW-AASYE-STCV] - $479.95 -
For just about any part you can put on your Jeep you will find at least 1 person who said they wish they wouldn't have. I don't think your going to find anyone who will say that about a SYE + CV drive shaft.
You can run 31s on a stock Jeep
You can run 33s with a 3" suspension lift
You can run 35s with a 4" suspension lift
You have to have proper backspacing on your wheels and the right amount of bump stop or your tires will be in your fenders.
Exactly what do you want to do with this Jeep? There are a lot of ways to lift a Jeep, but we need to know what your going to do with it to tell you what way is the right way for you. Why do you want to lift it in the first place? To make it look cool, or have you been off roading it and gotten stuck or hung up on something? If you just want it to look cool and not be any better off road let me know and I'll point you in the right direction. If your getting hung up on something let us know what you were doing and what you got hung up on. Maybe you just need some mud tires. A nice set of 31" tires on a Jeep will go a long way. Making your Jeep taller doesn't make it perform better off road. Taller tires will give you more ground clearance but just remember for ever 1" of tire you add your only getting 1/2" more ground clearance.
