Fix things first. Then Long Arm Suspension. Personally, I would stay under 5" lift. Do a SYE. Do Gears. Armor, and lockers. But fix it first.
96 XJ 4.0 / 231 / 3.5" JY Lift/ 31" BFG /.....
93 VT1100 - Harley killer.
97 ZJ 4.0 / 242 / Stock
93 ZJ 4.0 / 2"BB / Wranglers / RIP-Gone but not forgotten.

If it aint dirty, it aint a JEEP, it's just a SUV.
