I'm living in Airville at the moment. Not sure how much longer though. Got quite a bit of the build planned out already. But, as always, funding will be what holds me back. This isn't a budget build, but it isn't a rich man's build either. Saving for the lift kit currently. Pretty set on the Rubicon Express 5.5" Long Arm kit. I have another Jeep (98 XJ) that is my daily driver so its not too big of a deal if this Jeep has to sit from time to time while I save for more parts.

Ah, you're down south, think that's below brogue, so you're about 45 minutes from me. I have no input on any over the counter lift kits really... But RE used to make good stuff from what I've heard. Long arms are definitely worth the extra cash too!

Yes, I am below Brogue. I'm not too far from Clearview Elementary and Collinsville Diner. I don't possess the greatest of fabrication skills but I have no problem putting in wrench time. Hence the kit. I looked over the instructions already for the kit as well and I'm confident I can handle the necessary cutting/drilling/welding.

I've installed my fair share of kits at houses and in my shop. They're straight forward and simple. Worst part is leaf spring billed imo. But if one breaks, it's not the end of the world. Just adds a few more minutes and anger to the project

Lol. Too funny. Hopefully the leaf springs aren't too much of an issue. The kit I want completely replaces the leaf springs instead of adding to them. I'm hoping it doesn't take me too long to get the money together for it. Gonna start putting in those 12 hour days so maybe by the end of the month.

Full leaf packs are far superior to add a leafs, so, good call. The issue you'll find with them is that the bolts like to get seized in the bushings, or snap. Do some research on that just so you at least have a general game plan what to do if it does happen.

Looks like things will have to be put on hold for now. Gotta find a new place to live.

Hello everyone,
I'm from the Pittsburgh area. I Just picked up my first XJ. Not new to jeeps though. I've got an MJ and a nicely built TJ for wheeling. This one is gonna be my daily driver.
