Question, if I were to get the Metalcloak 3.5” lift kit for my JLU, would I have to get a new front and rear drive shaft to allow for enough clearance? If so does anyone have any good recommendations?

I did the Teraflex 3.5 ST kit on my JLR and don’t need new driveshafts

Rear is fine, front is recommended. The new one is much smaller in diameter while being stronger. It provides the needed clearance from the exhaust. Adams, Tom woods and the MC all work great. We have the MC one and it’s working great.

If you’re not planning on wheeling, the stock one will be fine. If you flex it out and crawl, it’s days are typically numbered before you tear a bolt
