At 4-4.5" lift you need new upper and lower rear control arms, atlease new lower front control arms, longer brake lines, you should already have adjustable track bars but if you dont you will need them also front and rear, possibly longer shocks than what came with your 3" lift, just be ready to lay out a lot more money for that extra 1-1.5"
Have adjustable front and rear track bars and plan on doing adjustable control arms
Started packing today, plan on taking a weekend southern trip to visit family in Houston,TX. Going to stop by Sam Houston National Forest, and Huntsville State Park and it might just involve the ZJ, Anyone, near want to meet me down there, PM me...
Hey I'm in Houston! See if you can hit general sams ORV park in Huntsville. It's a great place to wheel.

Trying to decide on tire size 31 or 32...everything I found on running 32's on 355 gears was pretty much a toss up, some say it's not bad some say terrible gas mileage and power loss. I don't plan on any swaps or gearing and I'm currently at 3" lift with likely doin 1"-1.5" spacers...what do you guys think?
If I had it to do all over again, I'd go with 31s, rather than 32s and 3.55s.
I have to boost my wife up into it, I lost about 5 seconds(or more) on my 0-60mph time, going up hills consists of at least one gear's downshift if not two, and I'm averaging around 8-9 mpg...
Oh, one good thing came out of it... my speedometer is correct now, with the 32s on it.... it was about 6mph fast with the 215/75R15s(size on the door sticker) it came with
Actually I'd stick with the 32s and re-gear to 4.56 or 4.88, but since I spent all my ca$h on the tires, I'm stuck with 3.55s for a while longer.
