mitternacht The kit from EAD was on backorder when I ordered it; however they kept me updated and sent it out as soon as it came in, which only took a week or so. I plan on using those bots when I do my lift.

XJ Knight 315/75/R16's are basically a 35x12.5. Those won't fit on a stock JK.. So with that said, I would go with the lift kit first

Or Keep saving and do both at the same time

I dont plan to off road until summer in regard to any rubbing issues with the tire size. Also is it wise to replace all the stock bolts at the same time the lift goes on in regard to "death wobble?"

Thanks
You'll pretty much have to do the lift first. And yes, you should replace the bolts with the polyperformance kit when you do your lift (or have it done).

Here's a link to the whole "bolt problem" on the JK trackbars, and one on Death Wobble, if you haven't seen em...both should be mandatory reading.
