Hey guys, Brad (our newest member that wheeled with us a while at Disney last Saturday) emailed me this question so I thought I would post it here.

A lot of kits use a different shackle and an add a leaf that you add to your spring pack. XJ lift kits are fairly inexpensive. I reccomend Iron Rock Offroad for their quality, customer service, price, and quick shipping. You can call them with what you have, what you want to do with the rig, and they will help you select the components you need to achieve that goal.

You can get about 1 3/4 inches of lift for $99. Front coil bushing and rear shackles from several places. Plus, you can build on these items if you want more lift. Example, add 2 inch lift coils or 2 in add-a-leaf with the spacer and shacle to get almost 4 inches of lift. Very easy to lift. Remember, more than 3.5 and you have to consider SYE and extended brake lines.
