the only problem i ran into, trying to add 6" to my ZJ, was that the kit i got only came with the lower arms. when i went to add the springs, the rear arms would hit on the bracket they are in, on the axle. have adjustable upper or at least the correct length.
you will need a longer vent tube for the rear axle too. possibly longer brake lines in the front.

good luck and let me know how it goes!!

Just a bit of info (hopefully helpful or at least something to keep in mind). You are only permitted to have +4.5 inches of space between your frame and the ground in Utah. Going with the teraflex 3" which is said to be actually 3.25" and 2 inch spacers will put you 5.25" above stock and .75" over legal. May not be a prob at all (unless you get pulled over for some other reason). This may also have changed, check local lift laws. Just lookin out for a fellow Jeeper!

4.5" between the frame and ground? That's silly. A stock ZJ has what? 8" between the ground and the bottom of the pumpkin, so what? 15" between the ground and floorpan?

+4.5" = 4.5 INCHES OVER STOCK HEIGHT! It is from the frame to the ground that they are going by. I guess if your frame sits 10" off the ground you are allowed to add 4.5 inches of lift to it to make it 14.5" I did not make the rule just passing info. Check the local DMV. Perhaps insurance companies in the area might know. The local AAA should be able to help as well.
