You can go get brake lines from a YJ wrangler from an auto parts store. They're longer than the XJs. And most auto parts stores should have the longer U-bolts, I got mine from autozone.

do you have to do anything with the bumpstops either front or rear on a 2-3"lift?

I didn't but I probably should because of my 31s. I've had a few buddies in the way back before along with 3 people in the back seat and I went over a speed bump and I heard and felt my rear tires bottom out in the wheel wells. So while it's not necessary to get extended bumpstops, it may be a good idea.

Tess, you may need a longer rear line. The fronts will be fine though. You can buy a new rear line for a 95 wrangler and it will be 3" longer than your line and bolt right up. If you have a 2wd you will not have to worry about a t-case drop or SYE until you get up in the 5 to 6" of lift range. Without the t-case you have a much longer driveshaft that will be affected a lot less by the lift.

I glued old hockey pucks to the base of the coil spring mount for my original 4 inch lift. You can often get them free from ice rinks that support hockey.

Any construction adhesive like PL200 or something with exterior applications will work fine.

Just to sum everything up and simplify things, here's everything you'll need...
-Your OME Kit
-Extended U-Bolts for your particular axel
-Coil compressor for putting the spacers on (you can rent one at most parts stores)
-Rear brakelines from a '95 YJ
-Some hockey pucks for the front bumpstops (and the adhesive to hold them in place)
-Maybe look in to extended bumpstops for the rear, it's not imperative (at least in my case) but it wouldn't hurt
-2-4 decent jackstands and a solid floor jack (If you're doing this yourself)
-Hit all the hardware (bolts, etc.) that you'll need to access/take out with some PB Blaster
