supsension and body lift question

Alrite so my 2000 wrangler 4.0 5 speed already has 2 inch spring spacers and I'm going to order a 1 inch body lift this week to give it a little bit more room for my 33's to move around the wheel wells, is there any problems I might run into with a total of 3" of lift or the 1 inch body lift? Do I have to lower the transfer case/change the angle of the driveshaft? Change the angle of my steering shaft? Shifter extensions? Anything or is it pretty much slap the one inch body lift on and go wheelin?

You will not have any problems with the Tcase or driveshafts. You will need to adjust the fan shroud.

x2. and possibly the fuel vent and fill hoses. depends on how old they are / how well they strech.

Well I know the 1inch lift "kit" comes with some brackets to lower the fan shroud, but what about the filler neck? If the rubber doesn't "stretch" do I get longer ones or just adjust them accordingly (sorry just trying to get the run down before I dig into this project)

Man, I just drilled new holes in my shroud to relocate it. Very easy. The filler hose might have enough extra on it but you might want to get a new length of it just in case.
