Brake line extesions...you can make some, they're just a strip of metal that bolts to the bracket hole, and routes the lines further into the wheel well.
At flex the lines will be too tight and may bend or break.
Transfer case drop...you can find these on ebay. It drops the transfer case down some to help keep the drivetrain in line. The transfer case may have to be pushed forward some to cut vibrations. (Look at the Rough Country site: you can download all of the lift instructions as a PDF to see all of the details needed for the install.)
They recommend new bushings whenever installing, also.
A dropped Pittman arm is required for your steering to stay in line. The linkage needs to be right for safety.
The kits also come with a track bar bracket to keep those in line, too.
I just left the rear off, (most people do), and lots leave the front off. I used the front bracket but that means drilling into the axle housing.
I just did my install a month ago...
If you look for the Rough Country vendors on here, you may be able to purchase just the parts you need from them. They were nice, shipped same day, and gave me a discount for being a JF member!
