Lift Mods Advice

So, I am going to be installing an RE 4" Kit this week, which does not come with a drop pitman arm, will address need after install, unless anyone thinks I should go ahead and do that with the lift? Later plans for my Jeep include:

- RE reverse shackle kit, give me another inch so I can go with 35s
- SYE
- CV Driveshaft
- Ford 8.8 axle with Superior Axle & Gear Super 88
- Re-gear front and rear with 8.8 axle

I don't really have the money for these mods now, think they can wait till I go above 33" tires and 4" Suspension lift? Also am I on the right track of what is needed? Any other advice?

Thanks!

You will most likely need all of the aforementioned upgrades before you go with 35's and you may need a small body lift as well to give it a little room to flex.

I am thinking about putting my stock pitman arm back on and fliping the tie rod with this insert. LINK
