1998 TJ - 3 inch Hybrid build - Looking for suggestions & build review

Hey guys,

I've been lurking around here for a year or so now. Years ago I was an XJ guy, she was a great truck...5.5 inch lift so I'm familiar with our trucks. With that said I'm looking to build up a 1998 TJ that I picked up...it has 110K on the clock but is in superb shape and only one owner who did a great job maintaining it.

This will be my DD but she will see some light trail use in the form of getting to fishing spots, going up abandoned ski resorts and local Jamberee events.

So what do you think of my parts lists.....I'm planning on pulling the trigger in the next week:

AEV Fr & RR Coils
Bilstein 5100 shocks Fr & Rr *
Currie Adj Lower Front control arms
OME Steering Stabilizer
Braided Brake lines
Currie or JKS Adj Front track back
Currie Rear Track bar Relocation bracket
JKS Quick Disconnects - Standard ones
T-Case drop.....for now
Generic bumpstops....I thought to just look for the best price on these.

I have a good line on the AEV coils which is why I was thinking this hybrid set up. Intially I was going to pick up the BDS 3 inch ket....still may if you guys think its the better move but I thought this was a solid and respect build (outside of the tcase drop...lol). At 110K I'm think of also just replacing all the U joints while I'm under there. Think I should replace the front upper control arm bushings also?

Thanks for anymore ideas and insight into my build.
