Transfer case drop needed??

Is a transfer case drop need if I install a SYE and a Tom Woods driveshaft? Im running a 3in suspension lift.

No. But you will need a couple other things to make the SYE and CV driveshaft work. Mainly, adj. upper rear control arms to set your pinion angle. Then due to the new angle of your axle, you may have to address items like rear shocks hitting the axle tube, and rear trackbar binding, among other things.

If it were easy, there would be no such thing as TC drops.

I'm in the process of having a 4" lift, SYE and CV shaft installed. My jeep did need rear shock mount extensions to solve axle clearance issues.
