Going from a 3.25 inch lift to a 4 inch lift

My 3.25 inch lift is 2.5 springs with a 3/4inch spring spacer from RC now that i wheel it every weekend i'm ready to go with 4 inch coils. Please tell me if my shopping list is missing anything!

What i need:
4 inch OME coils front and rear $344
SYE/ Driveshaft for 2-6 inch lift $740
D44 rear 3.73 with locker came from a LJ $600
D30 front with 3.73 (debating limited slip and truss) Swaping instead of going through a regear $600
35s when my 33s wear out
E -auto grills stinger: $270ish
XRC 8 winch : $274
Curri antirock rear/front
ajustable upper or lower control arms

Anything else? I'm trying to limit this next stage to $3000

Thanks for your time!

35s also will need heavier steering components. I also wouldn't go with limited slip in the front...

I'm planning on doing the same thing in ditching my RC 3.25. I was thinking of going with either Savvy 4in or Metalcloak 3.5in coils. Also planning on AA SYE with Tom Woods CV driveshaft. Metalcloak double adjustable control arms and Track Bars. Along with a good pair of longer break lines. You don't want to overlook getting the proper length break lines as well as bumpstops. Just finished yanking the old set of 2.2 shocks that were completely wasted for a set of Bilstein 5100.

The lift from RC was a good lift unfortunately now living in Az the jeep needs a little more to make it all the places i wanna go without destroying it, i put it on a RTI ramp and it did really well and had about half an inch of space between the tire and the fender flexed out so im almost positive that 35s would be fine without a body lift but i could always do it later if there is a issue and as far as extended brake lines go how many inches would you go with? and all i would need is lower control arms?

For 35's: gears, upgraded brakes, adjustable uppers and lowers, upgraded steering and the other items you listed.
Wow $600 for a D30. Look for an XJ HP30 (stronger, high pinion and bolt in)
Don't run a LS in the front.
Is the D44 just the stock LS or a real locker (type)? Does it come with disc brakes?

Regear regear regear for 35's!!!!! Easier to do it when the axles are out. Minimal downtime when you swamp them. The 3.73's are not ideal at all for 35's.

You won't know if your 35's will fit until you properly set the bumpstops with your new lift.

Thanks for the input things have been on hold due to not being able to get the 44 locked disk brakes right away also wondering with the sye kit do you need to get a measured length or does the drive shaft expand and contract? i will only be able to get a set of control ams at one time which are most important/mandatory?

Here's a pic update of the bumper
