Operation Monster Jeep

So this is my second wrangler and my first TJ... I'm looking to take the 2 inch blocks I have in the front off and putting a whole new 6" long arm kit in place of the existing susp. I know there's a lot that should be done after lifting that big but any advice is always appreciated. I need a good quality SYE and if anyone knows where I can get a good set of axels and larger gears don't be shy. I wanna go with a heftier rear drive shaft but other then that I'm not sure what I should do to reinforce the structure of the drivetrain. Some have said to look at different transfer cases but I've also heard that a good SYE will do the trick. Like I said any advice is appreciated!

What are the upgrades for? Do you like the look of it, and will you be driving it only on the street? Do you want to take your rig off road? If so, on what type of terrain? There are dozens of ways this could go really. It all depends on your reasons why you want to do something.

You my friend need to take a look at some of the stickies in this forum subsection. They will have all the info you need to know. Then after reading all that, come back and ask the nit picky stuff that isn't covered in those sticky threads. Find the TJ Tech Boot Camp if you can. It has the most information. The FAQ is pretty good too.
