    I'm not positive but you might need some wheel spacers? I'm sure someone will chime in on the situation.;)

    why would he need spacers? I have the same tire size and rim size with TC UCAs and the only rub I get is on the body mount on a bumpy turn.

    If you plan on wheeling alot- some extended brake lines might be a good idea...Other than that I think you are set.
    I don't think you'll need wheel spacers- but you might want bigger tires once you get that lift under there.

    longer u-bolts, and centering pin, sway bar spacer to clear coilovers unless you are removing sway bar, make sure you have bolts for the top of the coilover (my icons came with a different thread pattern than the stock bolts and did not come with new bolts).

    Yeah, they were supposed to come with new bolts and if they had, I wouldn't have noticed the different pattern but since I ended up trying to use the factory bolts when I did not see any in the box, I realized I needed to take a quick trip to the hardware store for some new grade 8's. They did not send me the sway bar spacer either so I just removed the sway bar temporarily but since the factory coilovers were already off, I wasn't going to put them back on because of some missing bolts.

    I have my coilovers set to 2.5" with 265/70R17 which is considered a 32" tire. I think it looks pretty good. check my gallery

    So I'm just wondering, what would happen if he doesn't get extended brake lines??? Just like OP, I want to make sure I have everything before I install my Tuff Country 3"... And what about a differential drop? Do I need that too?

    Not positive but I heard you really dont need the diff drop for a 3" lift. You dont need extended brake lines either unless you are going to do a good amount of wheelin. Flexing your suspension could damage them

    ^^anger issues? chill out dude...

    but the diff drop lowers ur front diff to reduce cv angles if im not mistaken. some say its not necessary but for $25 its cheap insurance imo...as far as brake lines idk someone else needs to say somethin. only thing i can think of is they limit flex acting as limiting straps. which would cause them to break
