quick lift question

I'm going to be putting in a Rough country 2.5" lift, 1.25" BL, and a 1" MML. The only thing I SHOULD have to do is drop the rear trackbar with a bracket correct? I don't want to drop the T-case so I'm putting in the MML. Anything else I need to order since the kit only comes with shocks and coils. Thanks!

Not sure what ya mean by dropping the rear track bar? Don't forget to get it alinged afterwards.

X2 on having it aligned afterwards which means you just need to set the toe-in before you drive it.

More than likely, yes. At least that will recenter the rear axle. The front axle will still be off to the side a tad but that isn't really a big deal. The only good way to take care of that is with an adjustable length track bar.

Thanks guys. Will I need to extend the front or rear swaybar links? I plan on getting a set of JKS discos but not right away, will the added height affect the front or rear sway bar with stock links?

Along with the above post how about bump stops? I will have 2.5" springs and 1.25" BL and plan on running 33's do I need extended bump stops?

For a 2.5" lift height, you can get away without installing longer antiswayabar links Bato. And taller bump stops are always recommended since they are what prevent the tire from rubbing the fender well if you're on a trail uneven enough to stuff a tire up that high into the fenderwell. You could get away without them for the street or gentle trails though.
