    Looks pretty good to me. I built a 93 ZJ a few years back with 4.5" and I didn't drop the t-case. The driveshaft is pretty long on Grands and it worked OK. I don't like drop kits anyway, if you can spring for a SYE down the road. I'd also get some sway bar discos if you plan on wheeling it. BTW a 33 will clear with a little bumper trimming.

    Slip yoke eliminator, Changes the rear drive shaft from having the slip yoke on the t-case to a yoke or flange on the case and the slip yoke in the driveshaft.
