Time to lift

ok so ive been saving up and its finally time for me to lift my jeep. Just wanted to ask some more experienced jeepers a few questions before i pull the trigger. I plan on purchasing a 3" zone suspension lift with the nitro gas shocks. The kit says that it come with a transfer case drop, but i want to get a SYE and a cv drive shaft. So my question is this... do i need to drop the t-case if i buy the SYE and cv? and where would you recommend i buy the SYE and CV from? Also the lift says that i need 3.5" backspacing and the rims i want are 3 5/8"... will that work? again im new to this so any help would be appreciated! thanks guys!

no need for the tc drop if you are doing a sye and cv shaft

3 5/8" bs will be fine, for 12.5" wide tires, i'm running 4" bs and just barely rubs

Can't help you on the SYE but a lot of people swear by Tom Woods as far as the DS is concerned.

3 5/8 BS will work fine.
