What should be Modded?

I have an 87 Jeep Wrangler, I want a 4" suspension lift, i am either getting it from Zone or RC, But my question is, What would i need to replace? would i need a slip yoke eliminator? Or a Longer Drive Shaft?

Longer ds and better angles. the rc kit comes with a t case drop. I did an sye with mine for a 2.5" lift. gonna flat pan it someday so two birds with one stone.

your 87 should have the 207 transfer case, unless it was swapped out.
It is not a bad unit, but you might have trouble finding an SYE kit for it since it was only used in the wrangler for 1 year

Does the T Case Drop Kit reduce clearance? I would like to have as much clearance as possible with a 4" lift, I was also thinking about doing SOA to my 87. but i am in Highschool so i am not to sure how fast/good i can get it done

Yes, the TC drop reduces the underclearence of the skid plate by 1".

I didn't do a drop on mine becuse I want to flat pan mine someday.
