Don't we all... I've basicly done everythign else to my jeep except put a lift on it, guess I should have done that first but I'm building one for cheap. So what kind of lifts are you looking at or how high of one do you want?

well my set up is I bought some grand cherokee coil springs for the front they have to be from a v-8 and a 2 inch spacer lift to put on top of those that will make it around 3.5 or 4 inches then I'm in hte proccesse of finding some chevy s10 leaf springs and making a bastard pack using my main leaf from my xj. I'm also putting a 2 inch shackle lift to raise the back end to be even with the front. I have rough country shocks cause there are a few dealers on ebay that sell them really cheap. all this is only costing me about $275 plus about 10 to 15 hours of labor from me but I love working on my jeep
