Exclamation piecing together a lift.....HELP!

Since im on a crazy budget i'm looking to piece a lift together over a 3-4 year span. i really don't care if i could spend $1500 at once and have all i need. in the situation im in it wouldnt bother me if i spent 5 grand over the 3-4 yr time period on quality parts. call me stupid if you'd like but i gotta do what i gotta do. I'm already pretty set on control arm. thinking JKS adjustable all around:front and rear upper, and front and rear lower. that way if i like the 4inches i want, but want 6 later, no need to go start all over again on all components.

Here is where i need your expertise. many of you guys have been doing this since before i was even a thought in my mothers mind lol so please don't hesitate to speak up and correct or help me. 2000 tj 4cyl auto, 3.73 gears
will be a daily driver and i will be re-gearing to 4.56 or 4.88 gears to compensate for my 33 on now and eventually 35's after lift parts are installed

Trying to compile a list of components and hardware needed to put the lift together here's what i have thought of. PLEASE ADD TO THIS IF YOU SEE FIT!

-JKS control arms, uppers and lowers all around
-4 inch coil springs front and rear
-rear Driveshaft (not sure what size)
-SYE
-tranny skid plate
-shocks to compensate for lift

what am i missing that would be essential to running a 4in lift???

You will also need bumpstop extentions, longer front brake lines, sway bar link extentions or an antirock or another offroad sway bar, reccomened adjustable front track bar, rear track bar bracket or an adjustable one that way when you point the pinion angle up your track bar doesnt bind I would reccomend the rubicon express re1602 bracket because it should work while allowing you to use your stock track bar in the rear, reccomended steering stabilizer. Good luck dont be afraid to ask questions. Joey.

yep, and also the best way you can learn about lifting your jeep, especially 4 inches which requires more modifications to get it done right, is to read here on wf and on jeep forum. But you probly aready know that.
