If you do, put the TRANSFERCASE in neutral, that way both driveshafts will be disconnected from the transmission.

3" Rough Country Lift, 3in shackles, 3 RC shocks, 31" BFG ATs, 2 KCs, Lighted Roofrack, Soft 8s, TC drop, Custom oil leak deflector.
If only i could get a set of tires to last me 10,000Miles

Personally, I unbolt the driveshaft from the rear axle and securely strap it up under the Jeep (you can't just pull it out or fluid can leak out the back of the t-case).

-88 MJ; 4.0L, ex-2wd, TJ ax15/231, 78 Ford D44 w/spool, 9" w/posi, 33" trXus MTs, custom roll-bar/bumpers/etc.
Also an 86 MJ Metric ton and 2 '90 MJs
