i have a bds 5"lift in my jeep now. you will have to do the sye and get a slip yoke driveshaft(you can use a xj front shaft). but even after that you my have to get a transfer case drop because of the steep driveline angle.i did all the work my shelf so.to be honest if i knew it was going to be such a pain with the driveline angle i would have went with a 4" lift.lower center of gravity.

First off what are you trying to achieve with this lift? What size tires are you going to run ect... You will definitely need a sye and cv drive shaft (around 500$). Depending on what size tires your going to run your going to drop over 1000$ in new rubber and wheels, any tire 33" and up your going to probably need to re gear your axles or replace your rear for a stronger axle. Running stock gearing on 33" with the 4 banger is going to be slug.

A 4 inch would be more sensible but may still require a sye and cv drive shaft, then if you need more clearance you could add a 1" body lift and some tj flairs.

What size tires are you planning on running because a 2.5 lift will give you enough clearance for 33s and you'll most likely not need the sye/cv drive shaft combo.
