Will I blow a DriveLine?

Okay, so im looking at snagging a 2012+ Rubicon Unlimited within the next month or so, and pretty much not gonna be running on a stock suspension for long. Basically what i was planing on doing is TeraFlex 4" Long Arm kit with a TeraFlex 1.25" Body running on 37's. Now my question is, Is is 100% necessary to upgrade my drive line at that height?
Thanks for any help!

Rear no, front yes. And with a 4" lift there is no need for a body lift if suspension and bump stops are set up correctly.

Yeah you could easily clear 40s with 4" of lift and flat fenders.

Correct. The body lift has nothing to do with the driveline issues you will encounter.

3-4" lift, flat fenders, & 3" bump stops front & rear, and 37's are no problem.
