Installing Lift on my 1997 Jeep Wrangler TJ

Okay, So i just purchased a 3.25" Rough Country lift kit.. The kit includes:

Front: 2.5" progressive rate coil springs, 0.75" poly isolater spacers, sway-bar links, and transfer case drop kit.

Rear: 2.5" progressive rate coil springs, 0.75" poly isolater spacers, sway-bar links, and track bar drop bracket.

Shocks: Includes (4) RCX Performance 2.2 series shocks.


Is there anything else I'm going to need to get or do to my jeep? I am going to be sporting 33/12.5/15 tires as soon as those come in. Any tips are well appreciated. I will also post before, during, and after pics for yall to see the full progress.

Looks like they're going to have you re-drill the front track bar hole... you may want to consider getting and adjustable track bar instead.

I would be concerned with the pinion angle with that much lift on stock control arms.

I drive on the right side, what's wrong with you?

Be very careful with the wife mod. Uninstallation can be extremely expensive. Wife mods have been known to take the Jeep and all other mods during the uninstall process. Also, make sure you service your wife mod properly as often as humanly possible. Wife mods not properly serviced may malfunction or uninstall themselves at any time.

I ran that lift with 35's on my 03'. I used a MML and ditched the t case drop.I added 4" springs up front to level it out and re-drilled the front track bar hole like mentioned.Use a lock washer on the bolt so it never comes loose and wallows out the hole.
