You can run 37's with just a 4inch lift. Do you have a 2 or 4 door?

Like Riche said, you could run 37's with a 4", or you could run 38's with a 3" lift like 100dollarman:thefinger:

As far as the drive shaft, I know people that have replaced them and people who haven't, both have broke so I say wait till it breaks then get a free stock replacement from the forum and wait again:smokin:

4" lift is all you need for 37's. 3" with the correct bump stops will also work.

If you have an auto the factory drive shaft slip joint boot will invariably get ripped up on the side of the trans pan. The boots at the cv's may also fail over time. An aftermarket shaft will be a lot more picky about pinion angle, but will negate the above issues. Both can fail given abuse, but an aftermarket shaft is a lot easier to re-build in the field.
