First, what size tires do you want to run, and what will you be doing with your Jeep?

That much lift = larger tires (I'm guessing) = more stress on your axles = axle upgrades or swaps = gear changes = SYE and new driveshaft = etc etc etc

Yes, you will... and brake lines too.
(Most lift kits address this and include needed parts - unless you are custom building it.)
If you want 5" or better, why not go SPOA? Lots more flex and clearance!
