Did you have to install a SYE? Also were there any other parts not included in the kit that you had to install? I have heard some good things about the 4.5" Lift but I am only trying to make more room for my 31's - with a 1" shackle lift and 1" body lift they rub under flex.
If you are sure you only want the 31's, my suggestion would be to get rid of the shackel lift (my $0.02) and put on a 2.5". I would give some thought to the 4.5" though. With the 2.5" you will not need an SYE, but you will need to drop your T-case. The kit comes VERY complete, the only thing I needed to purchase was a new hard rear brake line, but only because I broke it during the install. With my 2.5" and 1" Body lift, I run 31's, but can clear 32's. I plan to put on some TJ extended flares which will give me enough for 33's and then when I get the 4.5" I will be able to run 35's. I am waiting on the 4.5" because I am trying to come up with the $$$ to buy a D-44 for my rear. Good luck with it.
