rough County 4 inch lift what else is needed?

About to buy a 4 inch rough county lift for my 2005 Jeep wrangler s model fully stock with an exception to a 1 inch hockey puck body lift p/o had installed. I found a 4inch lift for 500$ wondering what else I would need to do to after I lift it? I currently have, 31 on there now. Would love to get 35's but am prolly going to have to run 33's. Could it be possible to run 35's on that set up? Or is 33 the highest I could go? Also any feedback on rough County?

Thanks guys your always helpful here's a screen shot of the parts list included in the kit

Check your search bar, you will find out that there are not a lot of fans of the Rough Country products. They ride exactly as the name states, rough.

That kit is the cheap way to lift your Jeep... But just remember you can not value price quality.

To lift your Jeep 4 inches or over it's suggested that you go with a slip yoke eliminator kit and custom rear drive shaft. Couple that with the adjustable control arms needed to adjust the pinion angle, and adjustable track bars...you're looking at well over the 500 dollar hope mark.

Will that kit work, sure it would. You wouldn't be the first person to install that kit in a Jeep. The real question is, could you handle the way it's going to give your Jeep ill road manners.

Look at it this way. I'm building a 4.25" lift. Buying good parts from good companies. I have around $1200 invested. (I'm also doing a tummy tuck so subtract $300)

But to answer your question. You need upper rear adjust able control arms. An SYE and a double cardan drive shaft.

EDIT: Looking at picture you posted. Why would you spend money to lift the Jeep JUST to lower the transfer case?

If you made your mind on the Rough Country lift then go with the 2.5 lift you don't need 4" of lift. It starts to get pricey like SYE, CV DS, etc.

x2, the only thing i would not do is the 1.25 body lift, you already have a 1 inch i would not go any higher

i would just go with the zone 3" lift

Savvy/Currie. 4" lift is expensive to do safely and correctly, a couple thousand goes fast. Best option is a suspension/body lift combination.
