It looks nice! Is it a 4cyl or 6cyl? Also save up $200-300 for a SYE+longer driveshaft, since 4" lift will put stress on that slip yoke as well as maybe just slipping out lol.

I would drive it and see if it has any driveline vibrations. Like I say, I have that same lift no SYE with a T-case drop and it's fine. It really depends, 4" of lift is right on the border, seems like some Jeeps need an SYE and some don't. I would say you will definetly need a T-case drop or motor mount lift though.

well guys went and drove the yj today runs out pretty good the header needs welded, and for some reason when going into second gear i've got to pull the shifter to me and down. If i put two fingers on top the shifter and shift down it will go into fourth gear, i ask him about it and he said the tranny and the transfer case where out of a commanche, he said that was better cause it was gear to gear, not sure what do you guys think.

Well when I put my 8.8 in mine I had to pull the tcase drop "off" because the 8.8 raised the angle to where it was suppose to be and didnt need to be there anymore and I added a SYL and new dshafts anyway, check and see if its got a 8.8 rear axle, if it does "Dance in the Street" AFTER you pay for it!!!!! It sounds like what your saying on the shifter is if you just "drop" it down from first its going to the center position which is above 4th which is where it should go when you just drop it out of any gear you have to direct it to what you want it to go to, anytime you just kick it out of any gear, and it own its on unless you are directing it, it will go to the center so you know where you are at that time that way you can shift up, or shift down.
