Question 02 Jeep Wrangler Sport lift kit question

newb here, i would like to put a 3 or 4 inch lift kit on my jeep, but i know that sometimes with buying lift kits, when you buy it you have to turn around and replace a bunch of other stuff so that its safe to drive or whatever the reason is.

i found a 4 inch skyjacker lift, but i wanted to know what the maximum height of a lift i can put on to where all i have to buy is the complete suspension lift kit. not sure if this makes much sense but im hoping someone out there will understand

Below 3-4" is where you need to address other items

Answer these questions first

- What do you plan on doing with your Jeep? Offroad - what kind off off roard. Do you want full articulation, rocks, or just mild trails and dirt roads? On road/pavement only?

- What wheels and backspacing? Tire width

- What fenders do you have?

- How much do you have to spend including installation if you are not going to do the work yourself?

Some of the guys will only give you the advise for full blown off road setup. If you are on road only or easy off road, you do not have to go all out on the lift and can make do or if your budget does not support it. If you want full off road capability, it can be more involved.

(Forget Skyjacker unless you are talking budget boost)

After much searching, I'm thinking of this kit. This will be for 95% street and 32"tires. Anyone have thoughts, comments?
Zone Offroad 3" Suspension System 97-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ J2/J3

The instructions are on the link....... it doesn't look like anything other than the kit is needed.

Here is the other one I'm considering yet as well
