3 Suspension Questions-Help Please!

1. What benefits do long arm lift kits have that short arm kits don't?

2. If I put a RC 4.5in lift under it what other mods would that require?

3. Would I have to beef up the Drive Train if I ran 32'' tires?

1.Way better ride and travel.
2. Depends on the kit but on yours if you have the original front driveshaft it's gonna have to go in favor of the later double cardan style.
3.32's are pretty big to swing with a 4.0 so you may have to regear. Also 32's on a 4.5" lift is gonna require a good bit of trimming if you're gonna wheel it.I'd stick with 31's unless you want to go 6"

If I put 31's on it would I still need to re-gear?
