Am i missing anything? Ready to lift?

Just seeing if I'm missing any necessary pieces before I lift. Are there any pieces I might have overlooked? And I'm not relocating the traction bar. Thinking about maybe getting a 1" BL? MML ?

Rough Country 2.5" springs
Rough Country 2.0 shocks (I know . . I know, ill replace later)
Steering Stabilizer
.75" Spring Spacers
Bump Stop extensions

And my lovely 33"s on 16"s. backspacing is 4.25.

Oh and it's a 2000sport i6 5spd. Stock dana 30, 3.07 and dana 35 3.73. Being replaced with a ford 8.8 as soon as my buddy finishes it.

Spring spacers all around or just in the front to level?

Definitely add the 1-1.25" BL and the MML while you are at it. You will need that extra BL for the 33's.

What gear ratio is the 8.8 going to be? Hopefully it matches the front, I don't think it's good to run different ratios in the differentials.

With the BL and MML do you need to drop the tcase as well?

2.5" springs and .75" spacer is going to put your front axle off center almost an inch. Probably 3/4" anyway..

You can't run two different gear ratios on the front and back..

I would make sure you swap out the front gearing to match whatever you put in the back BEFORE you even think about using your 4wd..

It probably is, the only way it wouldn't be is if the previous owner swapped one of them out.. Look around where the cover is bolted, there should be a tag on there..

If the rear was tagged 3.07 then the front is too. Ratios must be the same if your going to even think about using 4wd. If you install the 8.8 and don't have enough cash to readily change the front to match lot of people take out the front driveshaft so even if they do screw up and go into 4hi/4lo they're safe.

And for spirng spacers stay away from stacking them on top of a coil lift. Only time it's really recommended to do that is using a small spacer (usually .75") up front to compensate for a heavier bumper/winch

The mml typically eliminates the need to drop the transfer case.

Do the mml and body lift together.

If you are not relocating the front track bar you may need an adjustable track bar. Keep that in mind.

Also, with the rear you will most likely want a new track bar bracket that compensates for the lift. (or an adjustable one)
