I picked it up for $149.00 with free shipping at Summit Racing. #9948 I believe? Pretty well priced I think given what you get and how well it works. The engineering is good, fit like a glove.

Oh and today I had my Currie LCA Flex Joints replaced, an alignment and a once over on the suspension. My buddy is my mechanic, and he did it all for me super cheap at his shop.

Ready for our 3 day camping trip now...sadly we are taking the BIG trailer and not the offroad one this trip.

Sounds like a winner to me .

Just bought 4.5 inch lift coils, all four front control arms, extended brake lines, JKS quick disconnects, S10 leaf packs, and degree shims all for 260 bucks!!!! That is my buy of the year. Gonna try and get TNT frame stiffeners and fab up some rock sliders within the next couple weeks, and wheel it.

$100.00 ??? lol
For less than that you can get Brand new updated Tail lights (Jeep 2500)
not tuff as steel, but look nice:

They bolt right on to pre-'97 XJ
- just like the original, but you stick the back-up light plug/bulb a little bit higher (in the Clear spot)

No I meant the styling itself, doesn't seem to go with the rest of the XJ, Jeep 2500s are slightly different.
