Ok I am putting a skyjacker softride 4" lift on my 1990 wrangler. I put new motor mounts that are 2 inches higher than the stock ones and a 1 inch spacer between the skid plat for the transmission and the frame. After doing all this am I going to have to get longer drive shafts? I need to know cause if I do then i need to start saving up big time. thanks for tha help

Re: driveshafts

You'll probably be good with just those things and a 4" lift. Any higher and you will have problems. Since your drivetrain will be pointing down so much, you can use some degree shims to point the pinion up a little. The angle between the drive shaft and the pinion shaft should be the same as the angle between the drive shaft and the t-case output shaft.
