Add a leaf. You basically stack more on your leaf packs. If you have bad leafs packs now though, they will sag fast.

Oh I gotcha. Yeah I probably will replace mine since they are the original and the jeep is 25 years old.

with the zone kit the rear sits up high maybe 1" more than the front so if it sags or settles it will look good and even out. I will post a pic tomorrow when it's sunny. If your on a budget buy the zone kit you will not be disappointed. If this lift doesn't settle down in the back in the next few weeks I am adding a 3/4" front daystar bushing for the front to level it.

It looks good but I want to keep mg stock rims and I don't think mine would look good with that much lift on stock rims.

Zone says max back spacing is 4.5 any more than that you will need a spacer. Spacers are cheap. I considered running canyon wheels untill 4wheel parts had these wheels for 300 bucks on sale.

Well after much consideration I think I'm just gonna go with 31" tires in a 3" lift. As much as I would love more lift on 33s, I need to keep this rig relatively useful for road driving. And with the budget I'm on I can't afford the additional cost of the taller lift and bigger tires. I'm ok with this compromise. It will still be a fun rig and I think it will serve us well. We just won't be wheeling enough to justify all the other mods. I may only get to do some light wheeling once or twice a month anyway. Thanks for all the input everyone.
