OME Hybrid Lift

First off I wanted to say thanks to everyone for all the awesome information on this site. I think I have decided on how to lift my 01 XJ, and just wanted any feedback or advice from you guys. My goal is to clear 31's for my daily driver and keep the driveline and steering geometry as close to stock as possible. This is what I'm thinking of installing.

OME medium duty leaf springs with 2 degree shim
JKS adjustable coil spacers
OME shocks and steering stabilizer
Superlift 2.5" lift lower control arms
1" t-case drop
sway bar drop bracket
adjustable trac bar

Any input is appreciated.

You won't need the shims with the rear springs, and most likely won't need the t-case drop.

also will not need the lower control arms if you stay in the 2 inch range, and probably will not need the sway bar drop bracket.

Yeah, the leafs, coil spacers, and shocks, along with a front end alignment will get the job done. But 31's will be tight.
