Default HELP WITH LIFT

Hey guys I am a new member of this website and I was wondering if I could get some help. I have a 99 xj I am thinking on a rough country lift 4.5 inch. I need info on this company and if I should look at different companies. Another thing is if i get a 4.5 inch lift would that be all I would need to get to keep my vehicle safe. In other words would I need to get anything besides my suspension kit, because I know when you get up to 6 and 7 inch lifts you need to add extra extensions and parts, would you need to do that for a 4.5 inch suspension kit? Never done this before so any knowledge that you have would help. Thanks

I usually hate when people say this...but, search. There are more threads about this than you can count. It depends which kit you get. Do you want adjustable uca's and lca's? Adj. Track bar? Etc.

You will most likely need a slip yoke eliminator and a new track bar an such. Just look it up

As far as the sye goes, id be prepared to buy it but wait until you drive it. I've got the 4.5x series kit and I have plenty of contact and no vibes. But it just depends, some people need one and some don't.
