Here you go. It is probably sitting at around 4.5". I started with the Rough Country 3" Series II lift, have since added ACOS, RC Ext. shackles and RC X-Flex LCA's. Tires are 265/70R 15 on MT Classic Locks-3 5/16 BS.

trust me i know what you mean about money but for a grand you can go bigger. or you could save and get everything at once. its all in personal prefrence really i mean when it comes to money i hear you i just lost my job and im overwhelmed with bills and to top it off i rolled last week and i hydro locked to top that off my rig also happens to be my daily driver. talk about complicating finding a job. yeah i know where you are coming from. look at where you can save money such as using stock jk shocks instead of buying offroad shocks you can save money there and they work great with a 4.5 inch lift or whatever it is for 31's theres a lot of write ups on it. and i mean if you save money on a kit that doesnt come with shocks you could maybe get a better brand of kit or just do a mix and match of different kits. in all honesty if your on a tight budget the junkyard is your best friend and you really can build a decent lift from a junkyard for under a couple hundred bux if that. that leaves money for a decent set of wheels and tires or maybe a locker or well anything really and hell since you live in new york which isnt that far from pa. if you ever want to go to a junk yard or talk about lifts let me know and id be glad to help you out man.
