Rough Country Lift w/extras?!?

I have recently purchased a 93 YJ. It has a 2" body lift and 33's. I am in Iraq right now and haven't seen it in person, however from the pics my wife sent the tires are way too close to the fenders for my comfort. My question is this. I am purchasing a rough country 4" lift from there site. However when it comes to the extras I'm not sure what i need and don't. Such as the SYE w/ CV shaft. Steering stabilizer, and lift shackles. I understand the principles behind a SYE and have read about it. I am wondering if I absolutely need it right now or can i drive it w/just the t-case drop for now. also not sure the deal behind lift shackles with 4" suspension and 2' body im sure i will be happy with the height and it should accomodate my 33's with ease. This is going to be a DD but I do want to do some amateur wheelin. Please give me you opinions.

a steering stab should be purchased, factory unit is probably done. all Jeeps have their own personality so a SYE 'may' not be needed right away and the t-case drop might suffice. lift shackles, mixed reviews here. the 5/8 boomerang is a popular lift shackle to go with. i think you'll be more than happy with the 4" RC. thank you for what you're doing, stay safe and post us some build pics when you get back

Stock shackles are fine with 4" of lift. You will clear the 33's just fine.
If you can afford it, an SYE is a must with that much lift, IMO. You can get away without, but in time you will start going through ujoints. I'm not a fan of BL over 1", but that's your call. I'm also not up on RC kits, and it should have all you need to do thet lift, but two things I would change are replace sway links with sway disco's. And get longer SS braided brake lines for the front.

^good points. just keying off this, i installed a RC 2.5" and at full droop my brakelines are maxed out. longer units are my next priority. definately with a 4" system.
