Year: 1990 Limited
Front: 3.5 RE springs and stock rubber/ Rear: S10 Bastard pack-Three leaves plus xj main plus fabricated UBE's (adds another .5 inch)
Actual: 4.25 Front/ Rear: 4.5
Tire size: 33" Maxxis Bighorn
Shocks: RE Monotubes
Trimmed: front/ rear is bent from tires rubbing
Notes: Stock arms w/o drop bracket, stock tracbar w/o drilling hole, 8.8 rear which may have given a touch more lift since the axle tubes are bigger than the D35. If I would do it again I would do 2 leaves and a shackle.
