The best advice I got was to keep reading/learning.
I just went through this at the beginning of the month.

I'm running a Rusty's 4.5 all spring lift on my 00 XJ. The kit came with front and rear springs, rear spring shim to tilt the pinon up, longer lower control arms, front sway bar extension brackets. I have not had any issues with 265/75/16 BFG MT KM2 tires. (thats about 32.4 inch tall) Definately research your options though and decide what you want and need.

Such a general question. Searching would return what your asking.. anyways. You'll need leaf packs (don't go aal) coils, shocks, id recommend a new trac bar, you'll need new lcas, possibly a tc drop or a sye. Im at 4.5 with neither...but the yoke on my dana 44 is longer, and I have shims, so both help drive line angles. You could buy 3.5 packs and then add a shackle for better flex...or relocation brackets. If I were you id piece a lift together. Buy RE coils and leafs from seriousoffroad, get some shocks (whatever you can afford, if you have the cash to drop buy bilsteins), get some lcas from rustys or anyone really, if you want to go big get a double sheer trac bar. Install everything, see if you have vibes and go from there.
