TY TY didnt even think about pitman arm. Guess now I have to find a cheap used trac bar.
T-case drop can be 1"x1" tube right?

you don't have to necessarily have to run a drop pit man arm. Just need to insure your track bar and drag link are close to running even, as to avoid death wobble. Stock steering is rough running on a 4.5"+ lift, it needs some beef, an older steering setup you will feel the weakened state of it when you lift it. Rugged ridge as a nice little set up for Like $179 that is a good upgrade. Also, seen it done several times on a 4.5" lift is the V8 ZJ steering upgrade. Just like the stock steering you got now but much beefier and very noticeable once installed. For the track bar, I went with the rough country set up for less then $100 and gives you room to go to 6.5" of lift. And I ended up getting mine through JCWhitney and it was cheaper than RC.
