Jeep lift help!

I'm about to get a 4" lift kit and it says I have to relocate the transfer case and the rear track bar. It comes with brackets to relocate those. Does anyone know how hard that is? Any special tools needed,

Do you mean a TC drop, did it come w/ 1" spacers. If this is what you are talking about that is very easy, just use a floor jack. Unbolt one side at a time a w/ the jack under that same side lower the TC just enough to install the spacers, tighten bolts and do other side. As far as rear track bars not sure on a TJ on YJ's everyone removes them.

The rear trackbar relocation is just a bracket you bolt on. If you post the lift, we can look to make sure. Usually, it is just a bracket that bolts onto the same spot the trackbar did and provides another mounting location which corrects things for the new angles produced from your lift. Its easy to do, probably one of the easiest parts of the lift, don't sweat it. A better option is to get an adjustable one, google around here or for why if you are interested.
