New Driveshaft with 3.25" Lift?

I have a 2007 Wrangler x 2door and I recently added a 3.25" Rough Country suspension lift kit. I also added 33" cordovan Mud Claws and I was wondering if I should wait until my driveshafts fail to replace them, or should I replace the rear driveshaft now and the front later? Also the kit did not come with control arms so should I also purchase these? I was looking at these driveshafts any opinions?

You will need them eventually. Although that RC 3.25” is probably a true 2.5” LOL. Just kidding.

I was on a 2.5”, added .75” pucks and waited a bit for control arms and driveshafts but did need them eventually. If you have the budget now, then get them now. I advise against rough country’s control arms though. +1000 on the Adam’s Driveshafts. That’s what I had. Best price on aftermarket shafts out there and same quality as Tom Woods, JE Reel, Coast…etc…

We went nearly 100k before needing a new front driveshaft. No matter what the manufacturer of the lift says, you will eventually need new shafts.
We also have an Adams front shaft and it is by far the best 'bang for the buck' out there.
Just my opinion, yours will differ.
