Wj IRO 3" questions

So i ordered the actual kit today, got raped on shipping as usual. I got the adjustable trac bar and the nitro shocks just for good measure. I was just wondering if there was anything i still needed for the lift to be successful, i heard steering stabilizer, and i'm not sure what style driveshaft i have, i have a 2004 4.0 selec trac if that changes anything. Also gonna be getting some moabs and i was curious as to what tire i should put on, i want to do no trimming at all lol.
Thank you all!

This chart in the FAQ should help with the component issue: (http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f310/.../#post10862639)

This current thread debates tire choice pretty thuroughly: (http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f310/...tracs-1193838/)

This current thread shows some tires that would work on your kit (http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f310/...-flex-1192886/).

This sticky has lift and tire pics to browse (http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f310/...tures-1159801/)

So it looks like i need front sway bar links as well? Who sells those?

*edit* found them, but i'm liking the price of rusty's over the price of IRO

no trimming at all? don't go bigger than 31" and no wider than a 265 on stock rims. that is, if you do any offroading at all.

You dont need to get front sway bar links at 3" of lift. I don't have them.

the whole time i had my 3in lift, i never ran my front sway bars. i left it off completely disconnected after i lost one of my JKS quicker disconnects. even at 3in, it handled fine. however on a 6in, that's a completely different story, you'll really want your front sway bars connected.
