Hi, new to the wrangler forums. I have an 06 wrangler with 50,4xx miles and stock everything. First thing I'm looking to do is put a lift kit on it. I found this http://m.4wd.com/newui/search.aspx?sku=KIT493231N. My concern is that it recommends a slip yoke eliminator kit and new rear driveshaft. Is this something that is needed, or that can cause potential harm to my vehicle without it? Let me know please, also any other opinions on the kit itself would be appreciated. Thanks all.

With a 3 inch lift you might get away without needing it. When you lift it, it changes your pinion angle, and you can get some vibes at certain speeds, but a 3 inch lift should not be too bad. I would install it and test it out and see what it does. If you are getting vibes you can either get a transfer case drop, or get the sye kit and driveshaft. If you don't notice any bad vibes, you don't need to worry about it.

The lift kit does come with a transfer case drop so that should help. If I still did receive any bad vibrations would it be bad to drive it untill I got the sye and new driveshaft or would I want to take the lift off immediately untill I got the parts?

If it comes with a transfer case drop, and your satisfied with using that, you will be fine.
