Yup. my friend YJ is running the RE 4" lift and it uses a tcase drop. She hasn't had any need for an SYE, no highway vibrations or anything.

does your '95 have an auto or manual tranny?

manual. i was going to do the sye later but trying to save money right now. will revolver shackles help any with flex or will it just mess up the pinion angles with the extra lift they provide?

Sorry to jump in But the 1" TC drop is only to correct your drive shaft angle and to keep most of the sliped end in the TC.
Otherwise a longer drive shaft is needed at full articulation so your shaft wont fall out.
The SYE is for when you loose your drive shaft that you won't loose your fluid and burn up your TC.
Then comes the CV joint drive shaft. Now this baby will keep vibration down to a min.and you can have a high lift without the 1" TC drop. That means more ground clearance.
You don't think 1" makes much difference just wait until your rock crawling.

Forgot to mention about your gears.
There should be a data plate on the diff with the gear ratio. My 92 5 spd had 3.07 gears.
Another way is to jack up the jeep and mark the drive shaft and rear diff with tape. Then turn your rear tire 1 revolution while watching the drive shaft and count how many times it turns.
If it turns 3 complete turns and about 3/4 more than it is probly a 3.55
