Sye?

This heep I just bought has a mystery lift of a mysterious amount (2.5" or 3") that seems to only be shocks and springs. It has a TC/skid drop (2", I think).

To get rid of the dang hanging shovel beneath my TJ I will need an SYE and shafts, correct? No other way? I really do not like this thing hanging down so far. But the driveline is not too offset like this. I just learned about SYE kits last week. I do not want to spend this type of money, but the TC drop affects other things, too; small things, true, but annoying. And I hear that it is not really a good solution longterm...

You will need adjustable control arms as well. I do believe it is at least lowers in rear and uppers in front. I went with adj all around, and yes a SYE and new cv shaft in rear. Enjoy your build.

if you want to take off the t-case drop do it... some jeeps don't require an sye till about 3.5 inches of lift, some require it at 2 inches of lift. no 2 jeeps are exactly the same. there is variances in castings and stuff.
i'd try it, if it doesn't work out get an sye, i would highly recommend the super short sye from jb conversions or the super short sye from rugged ridge (i've got the rugged ridge in mine)
you will need a rear drive shaft front should be fine.
you will also need rear upper adjustable control arms. no lowers or fronts.

If after you raise your skid to stock height you get vibrations, you could install a motor mount lift. They are about $100 and should remove the vibes from your moderate lift. Btw 2" is a heck of a tcase drop.

At least is adjustable lowers on all 4 and adjustable uppers in the rear. You need to be able to adjust the rear pinion angle.

X2...Adjustable lowers are nice, but not absolutely necessary. You also don't need to do anything with the fronts. You will need an angled rear trackbar bracket though.
