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?

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.
