SYE / tummy tuck question

I currently have a 2 1/2" lift, ford 8.8, and standard SYE w/ 1" MML. I performed a 1 1/4" tummy tuck while installing the SYE, now I'm thinking about either going SOA or 4" kit. The drive shaft was ordered for 3-4" of lift, but I'm wondering if the tummy tuck is going to over do the angle the DS can handle??? (edit: without the TC drop kit!)

Nah, a small tummy tuck with a SYE is way better IMO than a t-case drop and the stock slip joint in the t-case.

On top of that... you have the 1" MML to help.

They do say that every jeep is different, but I would do it without worrying if it were my jeep.
