When your girl asks you what you want to do for your birthday, and you say you want to go to the JY!

I thought 4Runners were cheap to lift when I came from the full size pick up crowd to the T4R crowd. Still cheaper than lifting my XJ the "correct" way, all those fancy rod ends and coils get very expensive very quick.

I can get 3" of lift out of some Bilstein 5100's in my T4R if I crank the pre load up to 1.75" at the cost of losing all my down travel....no different than when I had "green" keys in my 2500HD though.

SaS swap with 3link and fox 2.0... 1200... For just the front. Hell, just the plain leaf sas swap is 1000

And neither of those include the axle.

An IRO 5.5 long arm critical path kit for the zj is 1400 and that'll lift the rear too

That's pretty affordable for a SAS kit IMO but you could fab the brackets and such cheaper. Also that's a lot more than just "lifting"

When you don't mind working on the front suspension at all, because you know all the bolts are well oiled from the leaked rear main.

Add a leaking front main and you have mine.

YEP, what he said, only the ones you can get in the UK are twice as expensive and it works out cheaper to ship from the US. Oh and then get told 'should have bought a Land Rover'

It's almost vice versa if you own a land rover here. Everytime one comes in the shop, it's like a 2-4day wait on parts.

True story time:

After I bought my Jeep, I was looking at a '98 Range Rover, for giggles mostly, but also because I hold the RR in the same regard as the GC. It needed a couple new parts, nothing major. I think steering stuff. Anyway, I looked up the price of the parts for the RR and pulled up the ZJ parts to compare, and the Range Rover's parts were 4 times more expensive and would have to be special ordered. I'm talking remanufactured O'Reilly parts, not dealer parts.

I always say: I'd own a Range Rover, if it weren't 4 times as expensive to fix as my Jeep, and needed repairs less than twice as often as the Jeep.

When you sit down and stare at her beautiful face with all her problems, and you smile just knowing she's yours.

Then you turn her on and grin cause she has such a sexy 318 powered voice.
