Brand new Jeep owner

I am fixing to buy a Rough Country 4" Suspension Lift Kit, Power Steering, Performance. 2.2 Shock, I am also planning on purchasing Slip Yoke Eliminator Kit For NP 231 for the drive shaft. Is there anything else I need in order to make my lift complete? And; is the Slip Yoke complete for the drive shaft, or do I need to purchase a drive shaft as well.

Need some help boys and girls....

The drive shaft will be seperate from the SYE. The pointers for the RC lift is to not bother hooking the track bars back up, they only hinder flex and don't really affect on road driving. Also, I would recommend upgrading your brake lines to the extended ones offered. More peace of mind when you start to drive the Jeep after the mods are done. Another thing I had to do was, when you do the lift kit, the passenger side front brake line comes very close to rubbing the sidewall of the tire. Get a spring from a local hardware store to hold the brake line away from the tire. I use the shock to attach one side of the spring and just a simple clamp for the hose side.

Good luck with the kit, I love mine and welcome to the forum.

I left the front track bar connected with the extension, I sense a better road ride, but got quick disconnects for offroading.
You will need brake extensions and have a custom driveline built... you can take your chances with a bought one... you will also need to have the pinion angle checked, the 2 degree aluminum wedge that comes with the kit may not be enough to get your axle lined up with your drive line. I needed to get a total of 9 degrees and that was with a transfer case drop kit installed... also have a total of 5.5" of a lift.
have fun...
