Rubicon lift kit help

Hi, I decided I want to get the rubicon express 2.5" lift for my 95 jeep wrangler! My question is do I need a slip yoke eliminator? has anybody had trouble with just lowering the transfer case? thanks!

With a 2.5" kit you may not have an issue with the drive shaft at all. I had a 4" RE lift on my YJ and had no vibes with the stock shaft and no TC drop, I went ahead and did the SYE anyway, but I probably wouldn't have had to at 2.5 inches.

Try it without the transfer case drop first. Then try the transfer case drop.
