Help with lift and tires

Hi everyone, I just purchased a 1995 XJ with a 3 inch skyjacker lift and 30 inch tires. I am looking to upgrade to 33 inch tires. I will be purchasing the Rough Country 4.5" X-Series Long Arm Suspension Lift Kit with Performance 2.2 Series Shocks and Rear Leaf Springs http://www.jeep4x4center.com/rough-c...s-rc-p686.html
and am wondering what else I will need to purchase to complete the lift and put on the 33 tires? I am planning on using the rims I have now for the 33s. Anything else I need to pick up to make the transition go as quick and smoothly as possible? Thank you in advanced!

4.5" is plenty of lift for 33's. Careful of the backspacing of your wheels fitting 12.5's you may need to space out your wheels some.

Also don't over look extending your bump stops when putting on larger tires.

Pick up an angle grinder and expect to use it if you plan on disconnecting and wheeling with 33's.

You will rub due to the size of the wheel well opening.

Unless you bumpstop pretty much all of your uptravel.
