zone lift looks pretty good. Its about 150-200 more than a RC/rusty. Worth it.

the lift is $625 for a 4". I am doing a little reading and trying to figure out the best method. I have the cash, just want to make sure I get the most bang for my buck and only want to do this once. It looks like most these kits come with a transfer case drop. And I read everything about SYE's. Do you NEED both, or is it one or the other?

You'll need both the SYE and dc driveshaft or the transfer case drop. I suggest just going with the SYE and driveshaft. Its not too bad to install and a lot cheaper than the big box 4wd magazines portray.

+1. After a lift, this is the most important and best mod you can make.

Ok so it is one or the other. let me ask you this. I think I get the idea, which is making the new angle from the the lift less drastic. If so, what is the advantage of a SYE and driveshaft OVER a transfer case drop? I would think there would be a little more clearance but is that the only advantage? seems like the TC drop is MUCH cheaper which tells me its a temporary fix.

With the drop all your doing is dropping the transfer case to try to get the driveline back to the correct angle. With sye kit your putting a heavy duty output shaft in the transfer case. With the sye kit the trannsfercase is now shorter. That lets use us the double cardin rear drive shaft. ( double uoints) which is stronger and longer that the stock slip yoke drive line.with using the transfer case drop system your taking away ground clearence.there is still a possibility of driveline vibration. If your not going to do anything more than dirt roads and building your Jeep for looks then dropping the transfer case is ok.if you know your going to be rock crawling maybe getting on it hard mudding or in sand do the sye kit.

For me the difference was bad vibrations with the drop and no vibrations with the SYE. I did a 3.5" BDS lift and I shimmed the rear with 8* shims and the angle is perfect. Had it on the highway at 65 to 70 the other day and it was super smooth...around town it's like a new car.
