finally pulled the trigger.

I just bought the RE 3.5 standard lift kit with no shocks and separately ordered their monotube shocks. I know aren't a quality lift but I plan on switching it out gradually. So with saying that, is there anything else I need to get immediately?

A weekend off for the install, 33" tires, and an alignment. I would also look into some control arms down the road for better flex and ride quality.

I've got their superflex kit on my TJ. Don't buy into the "RE is crap" mentality. It's a good mid-price range lift kit.

If it didn't come with an adjustable front track bar you'll probably need one of those. I don't know how the kit addressed the rear track bar, but you want to make sure your rear axle is centered under your Jeep (either with a track bar bracket and/or an adjustable rear track bar.
