a few questions

Hi all, been awhile. I just bought a 04 tj for a toy. I just ordered a 2.5 spring lift from jeepoutfitters and got a set of moab wheels. I don't know what size tire yet but am thinking 285s. At what point do I HAVE to have a slip yoke eliminator and adjustable track bar. Also do you think I can get away with the stock control arms and steering. This is my first tj so any input will be appreciated. Thanks.

You should be good with the stock driveshaft with that size lift. I have run TJ's with 4" of lift and was able to get rid of the vibs with a tcase drop of almost 2". The stock arms should also be OK with a 2.5" lift.

x2 ... what he said.

I've got a 4" lift and I was able to get a smooth running Jeep by using a transfer case lowering bracket. It saved money for now. (Until I spring for the YSE and DS or wear out my CV joint, whichever comes first) With a 2.5" lift, you should be okay, especially with 285/70RXX tires. They're only 11 inches wide (same as mine) and if you choose a good tire, that will eliminate a lot of the vibrations too.
