I have 3 3/4" on stock arms, and rides fine. Only issue is not as much caster as I would like, but nothing real noticeable. I have the Fox (BDS) shocks, and have zero clunks, and they fit perfect. I am running the JKS bar pin eliminators in the front only.
03 limited 4.7 H.0., Superchips, TM wire snip mod, K&N drop in with custom intake box. 265/70/17 TKO's
BDS 4" coils, KOR .75 rear spacers, Fox shocks, BDS adj LCA's, A-arm spacer, adj.track bar, quick disc. front links, extended rear links, dual SS, Addco rear sway bar.

Also, a side snapshot view of your jeep using the camera centered with the rear axle so you can still see the quarter panel. I want to see how bad your axles are off with stock control arms.

Of course, any amount of lift will cause some increased wear on stock components and shorted their life to some degree (you'll probably have to replace things like tie rod ends, ball joints, certain bushings, etc, a little sooner) but you shouldn't have much issue under 4", other than the lift sooner wearing out components that were already on their last legs. One issue is the front drive shaft, though. Depending on the type you have, if may wear. I don't think it is usually much of an issue until you get to 4"+, but you may need to sooner upgrade or replace if you have a double cardan CV shaft.
Really, just talk to Kolak. He will answer any questions you have an will most likely put your mind at ease if you want to go with a 3 or 3.5" lift and let you know what you'll need for a 4"+ lift.
