RR Lift - Any problems post install???

Before I decide to install my RR lift that's been sitting in my garage for the past 2 years, I wanted to fish for any possible long term problems current users might have experienced.

Has anyone had any premature wear with the driveshafts, suspension, etc.. that I should be made aware of before I decide to install my lift?

I would hate to install the lift then find out 20k miles later that I need to replace my driveshafts because of the increased angle. That's just one example but has anyone ran into similar problems like this regarding any other components on the Commander?

I haven't had my lift on for too long, but I really don't foresee any problems in the future. It's not much of a lift at all, really, so I don't see anything being extreme enough to cause any real problems.

I could be COMPLETELY wrong though.

I have had mine for about a year with no problems. I also have not heard of any draw backs.

Since I need new tires for the lift, I've been waiting for the original tires to wear out before I upgrade. Besides, I wasn't sure if I was going to keep the Commander but thankfully, things worked out and I'm able to hang on to her.

You don't necessarily NEED new tires for the lift... it just looks better with 'em.
