will be following this closely---> http://www.lunghd.com/Tech_Articles/...udget_Lift.htm


but will probably be doing the zj v8 coils as you mentioned w/extra isolator, either going to do the dakota packs, or use the left over leafs i have from my monoleafed chevy 1500

will probably do an adjustable track bar with it as well....
