Also I am thinking about using newer shocks, what do you guys prefer for stock on a UC package without sacrificing the ride height and apperiance.

Let me know!
I wouldn't waste to much time on an inch. guess what? the upcountry had a thicker spring puck. If you can find a upcountry zj definitely get the skidplates and towhooks. 30 9.50 15 tires fit fine, but light truck tires ride rougher. You can put a p265-70r15 instead and still have decent ride.

Saggy springs are another story.

Up country coils are much stiffer. In good condition they are a huge improvement over the stock coils.
