I have it on my 2012 with 37s and I know I need a front ds but haven't gotten one yet so you can wait awhile. Also it's really nice go for it. For some reason my pics are not loading.

No you really don't need that or the y pipe when you get a new front driveshaft. I have pictures of a je reel ds and the exhaust crossover and its still not touching and that jeep has coilovers.

Oh yea and its a lil more than 3.5" but thats to compensate the armor steal bumpers winch tire carrier you know. Overall it was 6" in front and 4.5" in rear but its settled down some so its ok. I'm perfectly fine with it. Also if you run 37s you'll rub on the rear bumper not the pinch seem cause you move the axle back an inch. But it would probably still be good to cut the pinch seem.

Thanks again!

you didn't mention them so I will, shocks, you will need new shocks. I run the bilstein 5100's with no complaints with the RK3.5 X factor lift. Believe the rest comes in the kit.

Oh yea shocks and bumpstops is not included. For shocks I'd say get 4-6" cause I got 2-4 and it limits my flex cause there not long enough. Also I'm not running bumpstops. But i do need to get some. Can't remember what else but let me know if you have anymore questions
