Are you doing any drive train or suspension mods with the IRO 5.5"?

Edit: Nevermind, for some reason I thought that was a F>R kit. Subscribed for if I decided to keep the ZJ over the XJ .

As far as I know and searched the kit includes everything that's needed,but there's always that chance that I might have to do some kind of suspension or drivetrain mod along with that lift lol,its the biggest lift that ive put on a jeep so far,so won't know till I try it.
