you will need to convert to a long arm suspension, new shocks, new steering, new driveshafts, to run the tire size that most would with 7" of lift you'll need stronger axles.

lifing a grand cherokee that much gets expensive very quickly.

after you get above 4.5-5" of lift, thing add up quickly in the money and fabrication areas.

at that height you should already need to have your driveshafts lengthened.
