3" Lift Help

I've been wanting a 4" lift with 33's for a while now but decided that wasnt possible right now because the price (SYE, CV Driveshaft, Re-Gear, etc) and of how cheaply it would have to be done if I did end up doing that so I've decided to go with a 3" now and fit 32's. I really like the RCD 3" lift on Quadratec RCD Suspension 3" Lift Kit with Bilstein Shocks for 97-06 Jeep® Wrangler TJ & Unlimited - Quadratec because I think it comes with mostly everything I need. I'm not that experienced mechanically yet (hince being 16) so I don't know everything I need to make this kit fit and work right but I've done my research and I think this is basically what I need to purchase seperate from the kit to have everything about normal again- Front and rear adjustable trac bars, extended brake lines, and new steering stabilizer. If I'm missing anything please state what. This is mostly a daily driver but does see some action a couple times a month, but nothing really too severe. If this really matters or affects anything mine's a 2000 Wrangler Sport 4.0. Thanks for your guys's help!

You don't need extended front brake lines for only 3" of lift and you don't need extended rear brake lines at all for any reasonable height lift. The rest of your configuration is fine though you can get that kit from other sources for WAY less $$$ than Quadratec sells it for... not to mention QT's outrageous shipping and handling charges. Check with the vendors that help support this forum at Jeep Wrangler Forum - Jeep Wrangler Owners Community.

Especially check out http://www.4x4groupbuy.com/store/index.php which was started by a guy I know, his prices are excellent and far better than Quadratec's or any other big catalog Jeep parts company.

Quadratec is the last place I buy anything from, their prices are just crazy high.

Smart man. I bought my jeep used, it had some crapo lift on it.... rode like a dump truck, death wobble, the works. I ended up pulling off there lift and adding my current OME. ITs a world of difference, my gf even said it rides better than her brother's stock TJ.

Jerry, what is the "Master Install Kit" mentioned on the 4x4groupbuy website that comes with a set of upgraded gears? That isn't a do-it-yourself guide is it? Also, are these gears something one can learn and install without a professional? Thanks for your educated feedback, as always!
