So next question. With the 2.5 inch metal cloak kit will I need new drive shafts. On my JKU I was able to go about a year on the front one and two years on the rear before it went out. Replaced with tom woods shafts. Or do I just do a slip yoke eliminator. Sorry about all the questions just use to the JKU

I didn't think a 2.5" lift would do that in a year jk or jku. Been running mine for 2 year no issues.

His JKU had a 4" lift, which eventually will blow out your DS. On the other hand, you should be ok with a 2.5" lift. What can do is go with it, and wheel it a few times swaybar CONNECTED. Flex it out all the way and see how close your front driveshaft is to your transmission pan. If you have a mile to spare, disconnect. Your rear driveline angle should be fine.
