well, it doesn't come with swaybar quick disconnects, but if you were looking for stuff like that for an off-road suspension you should probably look at the SuperFlex kit, not the street-oriented SuperRide kit. It doesn't come with front bumpstop extensions, but again, street kit vs off-road kit.
I'd recommend an adjustable trackbar but you can get by with relocating your stock trackbar by drilling a new hole in the axle mount. I think the instructions for the kit go over this.
Other than that it's pretty much complete for what it is.
There's a possibility you might get some driveline vibs, so factor in the potential of needing at least at transfer case drop, if not a full SYE. 1995 and older XJs tend to handle lifts better than 1996+ though.
The rear leafs sit pretty tall, so you may want to get some 3/4" spacers for the front to level it out.
And you'll have to have the front end aligned after you finish the lift.

I have a 93 with the re superflex. when I first installed it the ds angle was so bad it bound and could not be driven had to do a 1.25" tc drop to get rid of vibes. got over 13K miles since then and no problems.
also the kit says to drill new hole for the track bar bracket or install an adjustable one. my bracket was to short to drill a new hole so I welded on a new piece to get the axle centered ( didn't want to wait for a new one to come in) but I would suggest an adjustable when you order your kit
when ordering kit also compare shipping cost, red rock was $50 less than any other i found plus I got free shocks with the kit another ($150 savings)
