If you can afford it, get that kit. cause its awsome and like ^^ said you wont need extended brake lines if you dont disconnect your end links. You may want to get the rear track bar drop bracket from IRO. its only 25 bucks or something. You will have a noticably shifted axle in the rear at 4.25"'s.

So if I buy the rear track bar drop bracket from IRO I can lift it to 4.25" with out needing any thing else that is not already in that kit? Thanks Guys

just be aware that at 4.25"'s its going to be a rougher ride on stock control arms. the angles are pretty steep. as long as you can accept that you will be good until you get some cash and the "bug" to keep pouring into it lol.

also, your stock CA bushings are probably shot, so save up for new ones or plan on picking up some new CA's (can we say adjustables? ) in the future.

You need to do a lot more research, figure out exactly what size tire you want and what you will use the Jeep for and how much you have to spend. In the space of two days you went from doing a 2" BB to doing a 4.25" lift bare bones. The bushings in your control arms are most likely shot, or just about there. Lifting it will destroy them for sure and it will ride worse than a piece of heavy equipment.

If you are just looking for a beefier DD (nothing wrong with this) then you can do a 2" BB, get a good set of shocks and some longer endlinks for the swaybar.

If you go 3"+ you need a front and rear trackbar, drop brackets do not cut it. Long swaybar end links for the front and back, shocks for that height and control arms. Going over 3" on a budget will only leave you hating the vehicle.
