    No, you do not need to re-gear if you lift. Only if you go to a bigger tire size, which typically people do when you lift, but just clarifying that just a lift doesn't necessitate re-gearing.

    Re-gearing also has nothing to do with what kind of transmission you run. You're working with the gears in the diff's, not transmission.
