86 MJ Lift

About a week away from buying RC 4.5 suspension lift for my mj, I will be putting 32" tires on. They tell me I will need 1 1/4" spacers is this correct?
Is this kit pretty complete? Anything I absolutely half to have to complete this part of my project? Also looking for ideas for tow points for the rear, I currently have a stock bumper. Is there a economical way to do this? I'm a beginner, learning. I know this is a lot of questions, one thing I have learned since buying two Jeeps is that other jeep owners are like FAMILY. So I would appreciate any help, Thanks MJ86

My previous post did not get any replies. So I'll try once more. I went ahead and made the purchase of the Rough Country 4.5" suspension lift. I've never done this b4, any advice would greatly be appropriated. I have the tools and a floor jack, 4 jack stands. I still need to know if I put 31" or 32" tires on will I need spacers? Thanks mj86

Depends on the wheels.
I've got 31" tires on mine with TJ wheels.
No spacers needed. No lift.

Go over to comancheclub.com.

I would find the offset rims as opposed to the spacers. Just seems better to have the wheel directly on the axle shaft.
