Zone 4" WJ Lift+other Q's

Ok so I have basically decided I am going with the 4" kit from Zone for my dub. I have been following Apollo's build and he said he got the IRO upper adjustable CA's and the rear Addco sway bar. By question is, within somewhat of a budget, what other stuff do you recommend I get to have the best success with the lift. It is going to be my daily driver and occasionally some wheelin' and trail riding. I figure the lift will be $700 give or take, Addco sway bar will be $140 or so, IRO front upper adjustables another $140 or so. I'd like to do everything for less than $1200 or so, that gives me a little wiggle room for add-ons and stuff. Let me know what you guys think, thanks!

It is probably the cv style. You need to get under and look. If it is (about a 100% chance on a 99 ), it will need to be replaced with a u-joint style.

your going to want to replace the front shaft. either you can get a new one built by a local shop, tom woods, or carolina. or if you want a temp fix, you can get a shaft and both yokes out of an 02+ which will mosty likely be a single/double cardan. i have gone through 2 cv shafts until i swapped in the u-joint shaft. so far so good

That will need to be replaced. The cheapest and easiest fix is to call carolina driveline and get a custom shaft made that has special plates that will bolt on the cv output. This will be a bolt in replacement. About $300.

The other way is to go to u-joint yokes for the t-case and axle ends, get a shaft with u-joint ends and bolt that in. Will be more expensive but has its advantages over the carolina direct bolt in.

You will Have to Swap the YOKES which means you could possibly mess up your pinion bearing because you have to Torque it Damn near Exact to keep it from messing up.

Carolina Makes a Direct Swap in tho No changin yokes.

So what would you recommend for pretty much a daily driver with occasional offroading... the Carolina?

EDIT: Ok then I'll go the Carolina route. Thanks for the help guys. Do they have a site to order from or should I call them directly?

true. but i managed to do it myself and didnt screw anything up. its pretty straight forward. there are plenty of writeups out there. if you are willing to put in a little time and effort its not hard. plus i learned a lot when doing this. so i saved over $200 by just putting in a little more work. sounds good to me.

obviously its up to you whether or not you spend the money on a new shaft or get a used shaft but i wouldnt rule out getting a jy shaft. mine has been holding up great.
