    you should be ok up to a 6 inch lift in the fron with no front drive shaft mods at all...but if ya went to 6 in the front you may have a problem when flexed out...in the rear yo might get away without having to modify it but more than likly you will have to lengthin it a little in the rear

    Your front will work fine. My rear worked fine with a 4'' shackle flip and 1 1/2'' blocks after lowering the T-case.
