Default 2001 Jeep cherokee 3in lift help

Hello Cherokee forum. I need some help starting a 3in lift build. I found a kit on roughcountry.com has everything I need except the adjustable track bar I think. I just need to know the backspacing and recommended tire size. And anything else that can help me out. I'm a noon at all this and my first build. And suggestions and tips are greatly appreciated.

Here's the lift u want to get http://www.roughcountry.com/jeep-suspension-lift-kit-670x.html

Are your stock springs good? No sag? That kit only has add a leaf, not a new leaf pack, if your leaves are sagging it won't give you the result youre looking for

There's a thread for lift questions. Build threads are dedicated to the build of your jeep. Unless you plan on recording your build here then it's fine.

As for that I can only comment on doing the front part as I have not lifted the rear of my jeep yet (waiting on parts) But doing the front springs is easy, provided you have access to a spring compressor, I rented one from auto zone to do mine

Besides a adjustable track bar is that all I will need to do the whole lift?
