4" RC lift and a SYE and CV

I am looking to run the Rough Country 4" X-Series lift and would like to know if I should just go ahead and buy the SYE and CV or if the trans drop kit will eliminate vibs????? I do plan on doing some moderate off roading.

I drove my 4in lifted jeep for about a year with only transfercase drop. It didn't have vibes but I went through two sets of universal joints in the rear. I now have sye for a couple years and its much better on the u-joints. Though a buddy of mine had a four inch lift and the transfer case drop didn't get rid of his vibrations so he had to do the sye right away.

I would get it if you have the money to spend. I ran the TC drop for a couple of months before I got mine. Had very minor vibes at take off but nothing drastic. Would pop out of second gear every now and then from gear shift hitting. You will also be happy to regain your clearance since you plan on doing some wheeling.
