Do a search to see what others have had to do... but for starters, make sure to get the tracking correct. Either with trackbar relocation bracket or adjustable trackbar (in rear), and an adjustable in front.

I've installed several of the RC lifts.You only need extended brake lines if you disconnect.RC 4" lift and 33's.

The 33 x 12.50's won't be horrible with the 3.73 gears. You may notice it some on the highway with hills and your gas mileage will go down. I've had 33 x 10.50's on my TJ with 3.73 gears and barely noticed it.

Are you planning on a heavy MT tire? That will affect your acceleration, mileage and braking more than a lighter tire.

Get some OEM length YJ front brake lines. Those will be 3" longer than TJ lines. You don't need a new rear brake line...

Gone but not forgotten.
