Naked! Like how less weight makes the jeep grow taller.

I'm running the gamechanger lite and I got right at 3.5" of lift maybe 4" and I'm still running my stock drive shaft. I've had it going for about 3k miles and quite a bit of wheeling with no issues. Ill swap it eventually because I really don't like the stock one but its working great for me! I've been told anything under 4.5" you are safe to run the stock drive shaft.

Those dual rates are greatough. Rides smoother than the stock setup and it can articulate like crazy. The limiting factor on my travel is the shocks, 6paks are in my future! With the 6pak shocks they travel about 31" I believe.

On the drive shaft: 3" of lift is the border line. While some with larger lifts get by, others have torn boots. I tore my boot with a TF 2.5" lift. It was one of the earlier TF 4 door coils that lifted the front over 3.5"

I've heard this as well but I think it's different with every jeep. With the JKU I've seen a 6" run for thousands of miles with no issues. I don't think it's a good idea but if you're buying that expensive of a lift if it can hold out for a few months to restock your savings then go for it!
