floridajeep ok so i just got off the phone with Rough county and they said that with a 4" lift there is no need for sye or new drive shafts he said the kit comes with a t case mod that puts everything back inline after the lift,so clawed95 you are rite about 4" lift and not needing any extra parts for the drive line,thanks guys

Clawed95Riogrande With that factored in it may make more sense for you to go with the 2.5. Only you know what's best for your situation.

As for the SYE and CV driveshaft- 4" suspension lift is the maximum you can run without the two and you will need a 1" tcase drop to avoid seizing your u joints up.

60mg I was shooting to have "the best of both worlds" but my point is thats it is my daily commuter and I have a couple of little kids. You see my issue now I need it to be higher but still more adopted to mixed driving that to off-roaring alone

Rough country's 4" kit comes with the extension brackets and the t-case drop and it's about the same price as the 2.5". In my opinion there's not much of a reason to go 2.5 instead of 4. The springs will settle down to about 3" anyway. I've had the RC 4" kit for about a year and a half and I out my Jeep through some pretty rough situations haha. I haven't had any problems from my suspension since I upgraded.
Did you do the sye and drive shafts? thanks

I thought 2.5" was the max I could go without starting modifying transfer case mounts, etc. Correct me if I'm wrong
Ya thats a good question can some answer it for us, thanks
