What do I NEED for a 3-3.5" ZJ lift?

Hey Guys,

I'm going to buy a ZJ this summer and I want to lift it. I don't do any crazy offroading or anything like that. I drive 12-15k miles a year and I just like the lifted look and might go offroading once in a GREAT while.

What do I NEED besides the kit for a 3 or 3.5" lift? I've read about track bars, brackets, moving the brackets, pinion angles, death wobble and a million other things and I'm so overwhelmed. I want the Jeep to have good steering control (I dont' care if it's stiff) and not drive like crap. I don't want to spend $1000 plus another $7-800 for tires for only 3" of lift. That seems excessive. I just want it higher and a little more off road capable but still safe and driveable.

So besides a ~$400 lift kit and tires and shocks, what do I NEED to add so that my Jeep will be safe and very streetable. Thanks for the help.

1st time buying a Jeep

Welcome to the boards.

Take some time to read through the Grand Cherokee pages and you'll get a ton of info on lifts, tires, wheels, steering stabs and more.
