is this good?

I would like to do a 4" rc lift, 5/8 M.O.R.E boomerang shackle lift, 1" Body lift(not sure what kind or what is good). 33 12.50 r15 with d window wheels. can someone give me some pointers and input on all these things. I heard something about angle change with shackle lift or what not, is that bad and how can I fix that.

sounds like a pretty good plan.

a 5/8 shackle will add to your drive shaft angle, but i'm willing to bet you won't get many vibes with that set-up. besides the brands, it's about the same as my setup.

what exactly do you want pointers on?

Sounds like you might need to extend your brake lines and deff. check the drive shaft angles with that but thats all stuff you can figure out when you start or with some more searching. I'm personally against RC but that's just my opion (and yes, I'm going ot say it), I just dont like their products, it comes with a life time warrenty, but your going to have to use that warrenty no matter how hard you wheel. But the tire size to lift hight is pretty good.

i got extended brake lines in the front, but i do a lot of crawling. unless you hit big rocks, you probably won't need them.

although every jeep is different, i think you'll be OK as far as vibes go.

for the drive shaft angle, what am i checking for exactly? and I know a lot of people are against RC but I want to try them out. and I use my jeep as my DD but I occasionally go off roading. What are some good but not to expensive tires? If I do get vibes what should i check?

Here is some great info on driveline angle from Tom Woods.
With a 4 inch lift plus the shackles I will be shocked if you don't have vibration issues. You can give it a try but plan on an SYE with a CV shaft.
