Question about suspension lift kits

I have a few questions about suspension lifts regarding the drive train. I know that if you lift a vehicle it changes the angles of a lot of stuff, so at what point do you need a different drive shaft/lowered transfer case/anything else? Is there a minimum that's ok to lift without worrying about that (say a 2.5 inch like this:, or will any change in the suspension height require changes to the drive train as well?

the lift will address most of the issues you going to run into. but most times anything under 3 inches and you good with nothing mor than drop skid kit....

also go straight to the rough country site and order from there... cheaper and they give you a discount for being a member..

SOME will tell ya the springs are junk.... I will say that too... BUT they are cheap and if that is what you looking for go for it..

But others will say that Zone lifts are way better and get this ****... about the same price..
Actually the ZONE kit is CHEAPER once you figure it has FREE shipping..
