Don't know which version you're looking at, and TF's site pretty much blows for trying to find anything specific, so...

You'll want adjustable front lower control arms to set caster, and adjustable track bars for re-centering your axles. You'll probably need some brake line relocation brackets. You'll need bump stops...all of this is if the kit doesn't come with them.

Since you've got a 2-door, I'd advise getting adjustable control arms for the rear, as well. You're gonna get more than 3" outta their lift. And even if you didn't, you're probably gonna need new driveshafts in the not-too-distant future, because of the extreme angle your stockers will be at after lifting. You'll need the adj CAs to set the pinion angle on the new shafts.
