4in lift....and what else?

Hey guys I'm running a stock 4 cylinder TJ. I'm looking around at lifts and I came across this Sykjacker on quadratec Skyjacker 4" Economy Lift Kit with Hydro Shocks for 03-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ - Quadratec I want to fit 33's. Other then buying the kit what else should I be looking into getting either now or soon? I have standard 30d front and 35d rear axels. I don't plan on doing any extreme mudding for its my daily driver. If anything I'll be on light trails.

Thanks for the help!

How much $ you got to spend? A 4 inch cheap lift is nothing more than that. Once you get it lifted 4 inches then you need to plan on spending money to make it work properly. You will need to address drive line issues for beginners and if you want to run big tires you will need to address gear issues and axle issues. There is a lot more than simply lifting a Jeep 4 inches. You need to do some research on here and find out exactly what you want to do before you spend money on something that is far from complete.

Well if I can get away with buying just the kit for now I will. College student with limited money lol. I know I'm buy the minimum but thats all I can afford. Having said that I'm not going to treat the jeep like I bought top notch equipment. I'm not going into mud or climbing rocks. For now its would be strictly ......looks.... until I can afford better parts.

so, as far as other parts not included in the kit I have:

driveline
axels
gears

i have 35d rear axels..how well are they with 33's..im not going to be racing anyone and with the low gpm i run it slow anyway to conserve whatever gas i can.

how about breaklines? and what else?

thanks again for the help

that kit doesn't include much of anything that is useful.

the control arms suck. you don't want the drop pitman arm. it's basically just some low end shocks and springs with sway bar links.

for the most part, your "suspension" consists of the following components: springs, shocks, spring isolators, brake lines, sway bar links, control arms (2 upper, 2 lower), track bars, track bar brackets, bumpstop cups, jounce bumpers, and driveshafts.

a lift will normally require replacing or modifying all or many of those components.

In addition, you may also need to regear the axles and install brake & steering upgrades to accommodate larger tires. You may need a SYE and/or DC rear driveshaft. Welding and fabrication may be required for some modifications. During installation, you will also need cycle your suspension to full compression, full droop, and full flex. You may also want to add a 1" MML + BL, which will help many things along the way. with a d35c rear axle, you also need to consider upgrading.

as for how good the D35c is, this should answer your question:
