In regards to the "lift"...I got OME (Old Man Emu) HD coils, TF shock extenders (I was truly surprised by how BEEFY these things are, full confidence in them) to keep my stock Rubi shocks and I moved my rear swaybar links up front and got a set of Currie ones for the back (that I've been too lazy to cut and install).
I was not expecting as much lift as I got, all told I believe I netted about 3.5". This will change once bumpers, winches, bigger spare, etc get put on, but for now it's a little funny with the 32" tires.
Other than that I have made no other changes. I'm a little concerned about the brake lines, and the brackets are cheap, so probably going to get those soon. No other brackets or anything (rear track bar damn made me cry putting it back in, though).
One thing I want to note...my commute to work is about 2 miles each way with a max speed of 35mph (just driving on base). The only time I really "travel" is to and from off-roading, consisting of about 1h30m on road driving max speed 70mph about 2x a month. Not sure if that makes any difference, but just wanted to throw it out there.
