Lift Kits and SYE

I am looking at buying the rustys 4.5" lift kit w/ spring pack...i have a 2wd Jeep and i was wondering if a SYE is needed (if im not mistaken I dont have a slip yoke to eliminate)....and is there anything out there thats better, but remember i am in college and broke

You should still have a slip yoke, but with the 2wd you have a much longer driveshaft and the angles will be a lot less at 4.5" than a 4wd model with 4.5". You shouldn't need anything at 4.5" of lift.

Lifting a 2wd....WHY???

So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.

use the money that you would spend on the ring to do a 4wd conversion and load up and drive to the backwoods. Live there, off the land, for 5-10 years. When you come back, you'll have a lot more money to spend on the Jeep without having to worry about dieing.

'98 XJ - burned :(
