Search, there are literally thousands of threads on this and it's covered multiple times in both the tech and non-tech FAQs as well as several stickies.

At 3" you don't need new upper arms, and the lowers are either right at the limit, or they need to be about 1/4" longer
(There is a chart that floats around here, but I'm not at home so I can't find it ATM.)

And you know that add-a-leafs will put a strain on already weak springs, right?

FYI, here is a site with a wide variety of lift kits to look at:

i have the rusty's 3 inch full spring kit in my 99. my stock leafs were already sagged so i just replaced them completely. you don't need any arms or a track bar or anything. in mine, i just had to get new ball joints and tie rod ends to fix my death wobble, and i'll be putting a transfer case lowering kit in soon as well. other than that you should be alright
I miss my '96 XJ 5 speed more and more every day. But now a '99 has my heart
