3.25 Suspension lift kit HELP
 
With a 3.25" lift kit will I have to get a SYE, extend my brake lines or anything that might not come with the kit. Motor mount lift?

Will I have any problems with the drive shaft?

You may or may not need an sye/cv. But with 3.25" you're definitely pushing the limit of needing one to stop vibes. You can just do a t-case drop or 1"mml and 1.25" bl. Then do sye/cv later with a TT. But your DS should be fine as long as you do something to correct for any vibes that arise.

If its a 3.25 in spring (suspension only) lift kit you may, but you could probably get by with a transfer case drop. However I've never seen a 3.25 in lift usually they would round it and call it 3 or 3.5 so what Im guessing that your looking at is a combo lift with a 2 in budget booster and a 1.25 in body lift. With that and a motor mount lift you should be fine you don't really even need to get new shocks.

Why are you guys needing to extend your brakeline with <4" lift...that does not make any sense to me. Stock length works fine.

I ran a 3.25" lift for 2 years with no SYE, or skid drop and had no vibes. I did eventually put in a 1.25" body lift to accommodate a 1" motor mount lift. Some will have vibrations at less angles, I was lucky, others are as well, some not so much, try it and see what you find, you can always add the trans skid drop if needed.

you'll be fine, as far I know you just need to install the transfer drop kits but most kits come with it.

I did it cause I didn't like how much the brake lines where stretching when I would put my Jeep up on the lift at work

I run lines that are extended 6", I am currently running a 4" lift, I hit 35" on the RTI ramp and as you can see, the extra 6" are definitely needed.
