I'd like to put a nice lift on the Jeep with plenty of the goodies that the majority have on here... nothing too crazy but a nice lift and tires for now, discos, etc... i was thinking possible 33x12.5s... about how much $$ would i need not including wheels and tires to a do complete lift and have everything set up as needed... after research and many options, ive become quiet baffled by the amount of parts available for these XJs... i currently have a lifted k5 blazer... talking bout simple... but in the future id lik to lift my xj as well... any ideas on about a round bout price range?
OK for 33's you're looking at a nice 4.5" lift kit such as RE (nets more lift than advertised) with a possible long arm upgrade, but some CA drop brackets work too. A SYE and CV driveshaft will be needed. With 33's you may need to upgrade your axles and you might want to regear. Depending on brands and if you get a shop to do the work or if you do it (prefered), you're looking at almost 2K for the lift kit, anywhere from $150-500 for the SYE/ cv driveshaft. Regearing varies but expect in excess of $500 per axle. Not including the price of tires and wheels, you're looking at a hefty sum of money. Deals can be had and bargains can be made. Do your homework and you'll do fine. Take a look at my xj though (album in sig) $2k in it so far for lift, tires, and wheels. Like i said, things can be done cheaper.
