Looks like I'll be ordering these in the morning (would like to sleep on it lol)

-RC 3.5" lift (+stabilizer and ultra fancy red boots)
-IRO adj. front UCAs
-IRO adj. Rear track bar

Already have JKS discos... though they're well worn out. To be replaced later.
Also already have a RC 1.5" spacer lift. Would like to add it to the 3.5" along with some 255/85r16's.

Will see what YJ(?) Front brake lines cost.

Sounds good?

Ive hears you can use chevy 1500 brake lines. You may need some adjustable control arms to set pinion though

The shocks that come with that lift aren't going to accommodate the BB on too of the lift. Also, ditch the shock boots as they only allow stuff to collect inside of them, harming the shock. You'll definitely need upper adjustable arms, at least, and adjustable trackbars.

If I'm not mistaken, those shocks extend to 26"... too short then?

Y'know, if that's the case then I may as well just spend $150 more for all IRO parts. I don't have the time or really want to go long arms. It's highly possible I'll pull the BB from it after wheeling anyway.

With that said, my other choice was as follows but that's $1k as opposed to $850.

-Upper and lower front and rear adj. Control arms.
-3.5" front coils
-Shocks for 5" lift
-adj rear track bar
-stock front coils in rear (v8)
-1.5" BB
-currently installed JKS discos
-no rear sway bar
extended front lines.

26" is probably enough to hit full droop without long arms, in which case, the shocks will be fine.

grabbed a front skid plate from the yard and bolted it up. would have liked to take the t-case skid and gas tank skid but the bolts were stripped. maybe i'll go back with a torch and hammer.

They hold all the vehicles up at the local yard by the gas tank. I haven't seen a gas tank skid I could have ever grabbed. Luckily, I was able to get a great deal from a forum member (maybe on NAGCA) for the transfer case skid and the gas tank skid.
