** 4'' lift question **

okay i was looking to get a 2.5 RE kit and the 4" kit is the same price. will i have to get a sye and a cv joint for a 4" lift. if so where can i get them for cheap because im in a money crunch but i want a lift. also would 31" look too small on a 4" lift?

You can try lowering the t-case about an inch. This should relieve any vibrations you might get. Easy and cheap.

Recently put an RE 4.5ED lift on a buddy's Jeep. The t-case lowering kit will not allow you to use your stock driveshaft (we tried, made it about 200 ft. before the d-sahft got sucked out of the t-case). RE sells d-shafts and the cheapest (cut it yourself) SYE kit. This same guy bought 31's 6 months ago, so he's running 31's with the lift, doesn't look too bad. It sure flex's nice, kit is well worth the money, save for the RE if you have too. Only thing better is SOA, but I'm a little biased.
