Usually when you get that much lift, you need bigger better flatter fatter http://www.jcroffroad.com/product/1TS-UTK.html

But even with small lifts the ZJ steering upgrade is money well spent.

I like this list and agree a tire size column would be a great addition. I just asked about the brake lines and steering, and now here I get the answer.
.
So begs the question....if Rough Country is selling their 3" lift kit as all inclusive, why do they not list brake line and track bar?

Because Rough Country is a ****ty company that preys on those who don't know better.

It would be nice to see a couple of additions to the chart.

Extended shackles seem to be required at a 4" lift (3" leaf pack + 1" shackle) due to the extended length of the leaf spring when compressed.
It was frustrating to me when I found that I needed 1" shackles after already purchasing a 4" leaf pack and 3.5" coil springs.

Extended bump stops or bump stop spacers should be added at 2"

Extended parking brake cables are required at 3"
I'm not sure if that is supposed to be included with brake lines
Maybe it is that that most or all companies offering lift kits overlook them entirely.
I have seen others run into the same issue unexpected.
