3 inch lift.. 1 inch bb?

OK, so i just bought a set of Mt/r and found that they run a true 32 inch. my last set of kumhos i guess were not, but they fit pretty good.. these new Godyears i had to do a little trimming. I have a 3 inch skyjacker lift now, but i think i want another inch lift to make me feel better. I am planning on a 4.5 inch lift in the spring, as i just spent 800 on tires, its not in the budget now... With all that said, I guess i want to know if I just throw some 1 inch spacers till then, what else is required for the extra inch... rear track bar? t case lowering? I did a search, but did not really find a good answer,

All well and good, but OP has a ZJ, and that chart is for a WJ.

I believe this is what you were looking for.

That's a handy chart, is there one for the ZJ? I've seen the tire size one, but I'm more interested in a chart showing the suspension component replacement vs. lift height.

1994 5.9L ZJ, retrofitted UC package, NP242 swap, 17" JK Moabs with 32" BFG MT KM's.

That is for ZJ's, I haven't seen one for suspension component replacement vs. lift height. Every ZJ is different and they will all need different components for the same height.

That chart is a basic model for all grand cherokees (zj and wj).
Im going to be making a more complex one later that includes SYE, brake lines, steering, etc

Incorrect, ZJ's don't use A-arm spacers, nor do they come with 16" rims.
