Need some tech info about a lift kit

i am planning on purchasing either the following kit or something very similar for my 05 LJ which i use for very mild trail rides and beach cruising already with its 2in budget lift and 32in bfg allterrains i plan to keep the 32's with the 4in untill they wear out. i have heard alot of disscussion about SYE and transfercase drops and was wondering with the very mild wheeling this jeeps sees are these modifactions necessary what type of side effects can i expect by not performing them? any information anyone can give me would be great if you could email me opinions or information that would be great because i have limited acces to my computer at work my email address is

And what are you going to do about a full roll cage?

And what are you going to do about a regearing?

And what are you going to do about the vibrations?

What are you going to about the Drive Shaft?

What are you going to do about a SYE?

What are you going to do about Wheel Hop?

Sometimes a budget lift ain't a budget lift....

There is no such thing as a chap lift.

The primary purpose of the SYE is to remove the issue of the driveshaft being pulled out of the transfer case under extreme articulation. A good CV ds will have a much greater travel than the stock slip yoke.

Ad for a CV ds, at slow speed you won't feel the vibration. It's only when you take it out on the open road that you notice the vibration.

So....to answer you question....

So nothing, and you take the chance of pulling the ds out of the xfer case....and as a daily driver the vibrations will eventually tear up the xfer case and other related parts.

As for gearing.....with 32's you should have at least 4.10 gears. With an auto you will be 'ok'.....but don't expect 100K miles out of your tranny.

BTW...is the LJ a Liberty?

thanks

no LJ is the unlimited i am currently already running the 32's and havent really noticed any decreased performance vs the original rollers. So would you go with just the SYE or would you do that in conjunction with a tcase drop.

i really appreciate all the help yall

Do the SYE and CV driveshaft and you don't need to drop the xfer case....
