Input/Advice on suspension lift/BL plans

After much thinking I've changed where I want to go with my lift. A friend helped me pick this:

Jeep TJ Suspension Lift

Basically the progressive 2.5" RC lift with a 1-1/4" BL.

I plan on getting this and a new front/rear adjustable track bar (probably JKS, RE or Currie Rock)

The kit comes with transfer case spacers so I don't need to worry about vibes (hopefully)

Is there anything else I should think about ordering along with this? Eventually I'll be going with 33's (skipping my 31's idea before). Would a MML be necessary with the BL?

You don't need a rear adjustable track bar.A $17 bracket will work.Why not buy the RC front track bar?You need to see if you have vibes before installing the t case spacers.A MML might fix any vibes without the t case drop.It has nothing to do with installing a BL.

So I'll skip the rear trackbar and get a bracket. I checked out RC front trackbars but they seem flimsy and I'd rather spend a little extra for something better. JKS and RE can be had for about 140-200ish


The calculated damage so far:

RC 2.5" Lift with 1-1/4" BL ~$400
Front Track Bar ~$200
Rear track bar relocation bracket ~$20

So I am looking at about 600 +/- which means I should be able to buy it sooner than expected

Install the suspension and body list.
Give it some time to see if you need the T-case drop. If you do- Install it.
If that still doesn't work, i'd continue to look for other answers, but I wouldn't worry about it that bridge until you have to cross it.

The new RC front adjustable track bars are very sturdy.

You will know that 2 minutes after installing the lift.
