    With that much lift, you will have to replace your drivelines with longer ones, or with ones with CV joints, maybe tilt a few degrees your rear axle (by removing and welding the spring perches) and probably even lower your transfer case a bit.

    Hope this helps.

    I'd anticipate lowering the t case, it helps decrease the angle of the drive shaft. Some companies will include shims or the blocks will be beveled, but by dropping the tcase an inch or so it will help spare your u joints. Talk to the place you're buying them from, they'll help you out. Good luck

    When lowering the T-Case, there should be some spacers inside the frame rail holding the cross member. I just took them off the top and used them for spacers. Im not sure why they were originally there, but they work great as 1" spacers
