09 Sahara 2WD

I want to make sure I'm ordering everything I need to lift my Jeep. 35'' tires with a 4" lift, new steering stabilizer, and pitman arm. Is there anything else I need/should order?

As a follow-up, (and since you are new, and this is your first post)

1. Welcome to JF
2. My first post was entirely good natured...

While most here don't/won't want a 2WD jeep, i'm not about to judge.

What lift are you getting? Why 4" (more than you need for 35's)? Do you plan on regearing?

drop pit arms can be hard on the steering box of a jk. if you drop the pit arm then you should as well drop the mount on the trackbar. Or bump steering will be a issue. Both of these parts need to be parallel. At 4" even with 2x4 you are into a point were you need control arms that adjust, trackbars perhaps a drive line on a 2d. though i am not sure on the length of that stock compared to a 4x4 Jk.

I didn't think the Sahara came in 2wd only. Not basing that on anything i just thought the base sport was only one available with 2wd.

A 2.5" lift is more than enough for 35" tires.
You can go with a budget boost/spacers, or a real coil-lift. The coil-lift will give the best ride.

Since this is a 2x4, and I doubt you will really take it off-road, I would look into the AEV 2.5" lift kit. It has a reputation as an excellent on-road ride. Not dissing the AEV crowd re AEV's off-road capability (except the drop brackets...not good for rock crawling). But AEV has the best rep for a street ride, hands down.

Once you go above 3", you start needing a lot more to make things work correctly.

No new steering stabilizer is necessary. As a matter of fact, many people, myself included, do not use a steering stabilizer. Save your $$$, don't buy one.
