Piecing together kit for 3"- 3.5" lift on 33's

Lower control arms for the front. Caster is important! They don't even have to be adjustable, just extended for ~3 to 4 inch lift. YJ brake lines for the front. Extended bump stops front and rear.

If you are going up in tire size you'll need to re-gear. Your transmission will thank you.

IMO you should call Dirk at https://dpgoffroad.com/

He's the man on what really works best for the XJ. Oh, and gearing should be on your list as well. Just say'n

Washington State has dozens of steep upgrades, 33"s and 3.55 gearing is going to be lugging much of the time, it should have 4.56 gears.
Might consider upgrading the brakes too. Taller and much heavier tires need more brake to stop them safely and in the same distance as when stock, you can't fight the laws of physics.

33s with 4.88s are more fun though. And allows for larger tire size later. Just saying.
