If you remove the anti-roll bar at the front you'll need longer brake lines.

You may need castor correction bushes, depending on how you like the drive after the lift because the steering will feel lighter and not self centre as much.

then at that point with no other modifications I would suggest you invest in more aggressive tyres suitable for your local terrain.
