2.5" Suspension lift and 1.25" Body Lift

Hello everyone! So I just bought my first jeep and am loving it I have a 2005 Wrangler Unlimited Auto 4.0L. I am looking into getting the Rough Country 2.5" X-Series Suspension Lift and the Rough Country 1.25" Body Lift. My question is are there any other parts or modifications I will need to get or do when installing these like lifted motor mount, tranny mounts, SYE, drive shafts, etc...

im going to be running a similar setup to you. I already have my 2.5" ome springs installed and will be doing my jks 1.25" body lift later as I broke a body mount bolt and am being lazy about fixing that. With just the 2.5" lift installed I needed extended brake lines I have an adjustable front track bar and I dropped my t-case with some washers as a short term fix you may also need a rear track bar or bracket . I also extended my bump stops and added sway bar quick discos up front for the rear you should be running extended links. When I do my body lift I will also be installing a motor mount lift so that I can remove the tcase drop I have now. I will be doing a sye later when I do my tummy tuck. I had one rough country part on my truck and it broke the first time I hit a dirt road not even a trail. I would look elsewhere for another brand. lots of people like the zone 4.25" combo (im running there nitro shocks and have zero issues and like the ride) kit or you could but your own kit together your self like I did. best of luck I hope this helps
