Should I go with a Rubicon Express 2" lift or should i throw a new exhaust manifold and cat back on?

i feel putting the exhaust on first might screw up the lift a little bit due to pipe placement.

Ideas?


Thanks

I would install the lift first. That way, later on when you install the header the driveshaft will be where it is going to be if you have to have a custom head pipe made. Front driveshaft clearance and extended shackle clearance are the issues.

Besides, the lift will do more for your fourwheeling capabilities than the small amount of power gain the header and cat back will give you.

One other thing i would like you to comment on...what do you think about the Rubicon Express lift? it has add-a-leaf in the rear and new shocks for the front. What about skyjacker? and i know there are a few others that offer 2" lift. do i need to lower the transfer case? I realize that i will need to lift it to find out, but from your experiance is a 2" lift gunna give me wobbles or vibrations in accelerating or decelerating?


Thanks
