i don't believe you need to do any exhaust modifications unless you go with long arm lifts and belly up skid plates. if you put on a short arm lift, the basic layout of everything is still in the same location as it was from the factory, so the exhaust will be fine.

i have a complete borla exhaust on my 97TJ since before i lifted it, and it didn't interfere with the lift at all.

I have 5.5-6 in (i forget) It is a SA, and I didn't have to do anything to the exaust. You may as well put the lift on first. Then if you do have to change it, it will be eaiser to crawl under the Jeep! Very Happy

If you stay with short arm, 5-link suspension and don't go for a radical tummy tuck, you don't have any exhaust changes to make. Go long arm. Triangulate the uppers or go with a wishbone tri-link, or really tuck your belly, and you'll need to play with the placement of the exhaust components and how the tube it routed.

Some lift compaines will make an exhaust kit to re-route your piping.

But for the topic's sake, I'd say wait and lift the vehicle, then make the modifications to the exhaust.

$300 later. See what it'll cost you at your local exhaust shop. Probably around $120 out the door with a lifetime warranty.

I realized that when I saw the Full-Traction modification...but I was just saying that was an option.
