It's a mix of xj and s10 leaf springs. I used the xj main leaf and 3 s10 leafs to get close to 4.5" of lift.

Depends on how much you pay for the S10 or Dakota packs. I have paid $20 for a set of S10 packs twice now.

You use the XJ packs you currently have, so those are free.

You need a grinder (harbor freight 4" usually around $15 on sale). Around $15-50 in various hardware and you are done.

I prefer to have the ends of mine drilled out and antifriction pads installed to make the ride smoother and quiet. I just took mine wheeling and put them through the paces and the packs rode quiet and cycled well. Stiffer than most aftermarket packs, but they did the job and flexed well enough that I know I need to trim my rear fenderwells now.

I've mixed in all sorts of leafs. Right now my rear pack consists of an XJ main, S10 main, and a front grand waggy pack. Haven't had time to really test it out yet but it should prove to be quite flexy.

Used the 4" cut off wheel for the grinder and cut the eyelets off the S10 main. That goes under the XJ main. Then I used the leaf under the S10 main , then the next couple of XJ leafs. I'll find the thread I had going for that.
