Default Metal Spacer Lift

Looking at the 3" spacer lift for my Grand. I won't be off roading it hard, just using around the farm. The lift is 3" front and 2.5" rear. Do I need a track bar with this???

2000 4.0 Grand Cherokee

What year Grand? I did not use metal spacers, prefering poly. I just lifted my WJ two inches using spacers and nothing else, I also needed the extra ground clearance. Cost of $68.

I also have the 2000 Grand Cherokee 4.0L, known as WJ. It is designed to have rake, rear end slightly higher than front. This is supposed to help keep it stable at highway speeds and allow some squat when carrying cargo.

Attached are pictures of my rig before and after 2" lift (before = silver wheels. after= black wheels). Does not seem like much but it added noticeable ground clearance
Here is a helpful site for info on the WJ. http://wjjeeps.com/jmenu.htm
