I'm new to this site, but im looking for a little help. I have a 1996 jeep cherokee country with 3.5" of lift and will be lifting it 6.5". Besides the lift what all will i have to replace? (example: upper/lower control arms, extended brake lines.) More info about the lift: i will be using a dodge dakota leaf pack in the back with AAL, block and maybe shackles if needed. In the front i will probably get some rustys 6.5" coils. Any response is welcomed.

Thanks in Advance
Tommy

You'll need LCA's (uppers would be a good idea as well), extended brake lines front and rear, an adjustable track bar, an SYE & driveshaft, shocks and steering stabilizer. At that height you might have to correct the steering geometry with a drop pitman arm as well.
