Next Phase of Build idea

Hello, I've been thinking about what I want to do to my 2dr 2009 JK daily driver and thought I'd post some ideas and see if anyone has any comments or suggestions.

Currently I am running a Tera 2.5" coil lift (the older one that gave you a little more than 2.5" i think I heard they came out with new one in past couple years that is more spot on 2.5). Front and rear trackbars, rear TB bracket, front lower and rear upper ca's, front and rear 1310 driveshafts, king 2.5" shocks, steel bumpers, psc brawler rockers and crusher flares, and 35's and wheels with 4.5" of backspacing. I hit a pot hole one time and went into death wobble the dealership put on a steering stabilizer and it hasnt happened since...I still need to circle back and address that tho was gonna put on that hardware kit of nuts and bolts that nothridge sells and maybe replace the ball joints but I digress...

I'm thinking about doing this for the next phase:

1) Evo front double throwdown
2) Front King bumpstops
3) Add 3" springs in the rear (EVO plushrides maybe) and leave the 2.5" king's in the rear for now (no coilovers yet)(I like lower profile LCG or want to work my way up gradually to 4" maybe someday but thought I would try 3 inch for now and see. With a 2 dr I might get more than 3" anyway.
4) probably stay with 35's and regear to 5.13 or possibly move to 37's and regear to 5.38..

What do you think? Anything else to consider? Should I include a draglink flip kit? Will I need spidertrax spacers to fix backspacing?

Just wanted to type out what I'm thinking about going with and see if anyone had any comments. Thanks a lot.

It's only money.... But build it smart so you don't tear up expensive stuff just to run bigger tires...
Also PLAN
Buy things you can upgrade as you save Money or as you get the itch for more.

Next thing you know it will be on 42s....lol
