What other parts do i need for my lift?

So I managed to get a great deal on some parts for my jeep.

I bought rough country springs and lower control arms front and rear
whatever shocks came with the rough country lift
transfer case lowering kit
nth degree adjustable upper RCA
skyjacker adjustable front track bar
terraflex adjustable rear track bar
and terraflex shock mount relocators

all of this for a little less than $300.

What I am wondering is what else do I need to complete the lift?

I figured new shocks not the rough country ones, extended bump stops and an sye and driveshaft. Anything else I am missing?

Additional items..

You didn't say what the lift height is...

Sway bar items;
- Front Quick Disconnects
- Rear Extended Links (may not need them depending on the lift height)

No sure if you'll need a rear track bar relocation bracket since you've got an adjustable TB - once again, highly depends on the lift height.

Extended brake lines....again, may not need them based on the height.

I'm sure there'll be more items siggested.

Oh man, I did forget that. The lift heigth is 4 inches. I already have front disconnects and I am running no sway bar in the rear. Does anyone know where I can get the bracket that relocates the track bar mount for the skyjaker adjustable front trackbar?

for an RC lift the list gets longer and longer and more incomplete.......when u get done with the lift you will have the equivalent of a RE long arm kit.......

Wait, what? No rear sway? Did you remove it?

If you don't have a rear sway bar, don't bother with disco's for the front...but don't drive it...it will rock around in a breeze.

supposedly rc has gotten better. I will let everyone know and post it in the lift review section, but I couldnt beat the price for all of the extra goodies.

and uh, stevens, why would I not bother with disco's for the front if i removed the rear sway bar? I am a little confused because for the past year I have had no problems so far.

when you lift it, you will have a LOT more play in the suspension.. he was joking with you for having no sway bar in the rear.. IMO the only proper way to do that is to do a leaf spring conversion in the rear.. coils would be a no no without a swaybar

Hmm, that makes sense. I never thought of it that way, with a four inch lift do I need rear sway bar extensions or will the stock ones do?

Rear sway bar links

... technically - yes, with 4" of lift you'll need the extended rear links.

You don't need a bracket when using the adjustable track bar. (at least I didn't need one)

Thanks Mark. I ordered new extended sway bar links.

Do you have the skyjacker adjustable track bar? Everywhere I read said that it was needed with this to relocate it to the top of the axle. If I dont need it that would be great.
