What am i missing? Double checking.

So as soon as my current tires need replacing I will be regearing and adding 35" tires to my LJ. I wanted to make sure I have everything I need to run them properly. So far I have as follows

4.5" RE short arm suspension lift
Currie HD tie rod/drag link
JKS 1.25" BL + 1" MML (not installed yet ready)
Black magic brake pads

Am I forgetting anything else that is important to run 35s properly?

Regear planned? And I think you should be good on axle shafts as long as I'm remembering correctly that LJ's came with D44 rears. Have you installed adj. trackbars?

Will you end up needing a cv/ dc rear drive shaft with that amount of lift?

LJ's can take more lift without needing sye/cv(dc) setup because of their extended length.

Sounds like you're good to go as far as the "needed" mods for 35's to me man. Good job on your research.

Just be sure to check bumpstop length after all the new stuff is added

Take a look at the savvy version of that steering setup. Their version is stronger and the cost differential minimal. What made you decide on the RE lift?

Pretty sure Currie and Savvy are the same thing...

The owners have been friends for a long time but they are not the same. Savvy sells Currie parts and likes to try to improve if they can. The Savvy setup is all Currie but with the alloy tie rod.

Oh ok. Well there you have it. Learn something new everyday.

well i already have curries steering so i probably wont switch to savvy for awhile.

i chose RE because i heard their lifts sit higher and i have a lot of weight in bumpers and other add ons and didnt wanted to experience as little sag as possible. my rough country 2.5" lift only ended up giving me 1.5" of lift right after install.
