Installing a 3" BDS on my Rubicon tomorrow, quick ?

Hello all, I'm going to install a 3" BDS lift on my Rubicon tomorrow (hopefully) and have a quick question, on the BDS site it says "might require stock skid modification on Rubicon models", I've searched and can't find anything regarding that.

I know from speaking with a BDS rep and reading before the purchase I won't need to install a transfer case drop kit on a Rubicon but what part might need to be modified ?

I'm really looking forward to getting this all installed and loosing the BB I currently have.
