Got me a new Rubi and wanting to go from stock to somthing a bit taller. I've figured most out, but now I need to choose the proper kit. I found this one and I think it's right, but I'm not sure if some of the parts are nesacary. Shock adapter? Rear TB bracket? Brake line bracket? Are these things needed, or should I go with a cheaper kit without all these parts?

Keep in mind I'm coming from an 01. Not much knowledge in this newness.

I think if I go this route alls I'll need is back spacers, right? Thanks.

That is a really good kit. I believe in the extra parts, in particular if you ever decide to upgrade the shocks which is a big performance improvement. The longer shocks give a lot more travel. The shock adapters allow you to use your stock shocks, but you don't gain any suspension travel.

You should also research the Rough Country Series II 2.5 BB. Its a great piece at a great price.

I run this kit, I absolutely love it, my teen son drives this weekend only Jeep as well, we needed stock riding Jeep for mall crawling (our dinners out, movies, sport store raids) but we needed height to run some 35's and do some north Georgia trail bashing and this does just fine.
Only thing I wish the kit had was front brake line brackets, I made my own out of flat stock.
