How to properly install a 2 - 3 inch lift?

I was just looking for other opinions since ive heard mixed results. Im looking to install most likely a 2.50 to 3 inch lift, and I'm not sure if there is anything else that needs to be done besides just installing the new lift. For example extending the brake lines, adjusting the steering column, extending the drift shaft etc. I have a 99 Sahara.

Follow the instructions provided by the manufacturer. Different brand lift kits install in the same manner, so you should visit other lift company websites and download several sets of instructions.

Read the FAQ's for your Jeep, and read older threads about lift installs. Use the forum SEARCH function, scroll the bottom of this page, or use the Google. No lift kit is 100% complete, you may need additional parts.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
