Default 2006 4x4 4" lift needs driveshaft?

Just want to see if you guys can give me some feedback. Do i need to extend driveshafts with a 4" lift on a 2006 4x4 ranger? Any suggestions or comments are appreciated.

No, but you'll want to purchase a NEW front driveshaft from superlift, that has an extra joint added to better handle the steep angle of the driveline. The rear is fine stock.

Superlift sells a drive shaft with the required double cardon joint. They also conveniently sell the only suspension lift for 98 and newer 4x4 Rangers.
