I have a 2 door manual trans sport jk, i am looking to lift it 4 inches and throw on 37's. I do not want any problems with this lift and want peace of mind, is there anything else to recomend? Anything to change? Any thoughts? I am using this jeep as my daily driver as well.

Looks like a pretty solid build... Might want to do some more research on the suspension kit though. Looks like a pretty incomplete kit for 4"

Upgrade your ball joints
You are going to need some shocks
YUP but prob not right out of the gate. Might want to look at that and front inner sleeves, C-Gussets at the same time you do BJ's but do it before you trash the front end. AS far as shocks go I'd look at the Fox stuff, its good and can get as crazy as you want as far as performance/price.
Fox Performance Series
Fox Factory Series
Two door or 4 door? You don't necessarily have to lift your JK 4 inches to clear 37's (unless you want to)
But I'd definitely agree with the gears comment above.
Yup... a 3" kit/3" bumpstop extesions with aftermarket flares will clear 37's. Running that same set up right now on out 12' build.
chromo axle shafts, front and rear
I bent a stock rear flange on my first wheeling trip with 37's and twisted it as well. When I pulled the shaft out I was really surprised how much the stock shaft twisted without breaking...but that won't last long.
4" of lift is a lot on a 2dr. You could do 2.5 and flat fender flares
what is the backspace on those wheels?
Agreed... The front and rear shafts will have issues with 37's. RCV
makes some nice stuff. The rear axle listing seems to not be listed on our site now but I have our IT department looking into it now but are $1500 for the pair. Give us a call if you want some more info.
With a 4" lift you’re going to have a big bump steer (death wobble) problem. Make sure your track bar and drag link stay parallel to each other. When I did my 4" lift, I got the JKS track bar bracket which not only moves the track bar up, it provides backbone support and relocates the steering stabilizer. I then had to get the Teraflex draglink flip kit, these two together fixed my death wobble completely. Also I got the Teraflex rear trackbar bracket. Without these brackets or welding whatever brackets you do get, you will run the risk of ripping the stock trackbar brackets off the axle. I ran 37s on a locked D30 for 2 yrs before I upgraded to a D44, no major issues. Get trail spare axle shafts.
YES... Any thing over a 3" kit should be addressing the steering issues with some sort of high steer/axle side trackbar relocation kit. Here is a link to the one we make at Synergy
. Using just an adjustable trackbar aint gonna cut it.
