Too bad its for a ZJ so it won't fit on your YJ.


Grats, you'll be able to keep up with us better.


I won't be going on Sunday, I have all of my brackets for the swap.

Get a 2 inch shackle lift and 3 inch body lift and 30 inch radials. And then paint your jeep black.

Also its a 4, not a 4.5 Not a big deal since i got my 1 inch body lift.

Jeff, you need to get back before you die.

Eric, good job, get me some beer I'll put it on.

Snow, depends on your money situation, contrary to popular belife SOA is NOT CHEAP, at that if you want to do it right, its gonna be way way more expensive then a RE 4.5.

I have to agree with Matt, go with a spring lift. A LOT cheaper in the log run if you don't have a welder. But then again if you drop your axles bring them over to me with the perches cut off and with a new set of spring perches, I can weld them on in about 1/2 to1 hour. No cost for the welding. But then we get into the legal side of this. If I weld for you it would be for OFF ROAD purposes only.

My neighbor has a welder but i'm not sure how good he is at it.

Locked i would really like that except my jeep is my DD. So i dont know how to get around that.

The 4.5" lift is
$930
Plus CV Driveshaft
$450
Tires and wheels
about $800

So all together $2180

SOA kit
$310
CV Driveshaft
$450
Tires and wheels
$950

about $1810

So i figure i do more work but i save $300 and get to run 35's

Am i wrong?

Nate Harrison sounds fun woohoo for snow. I think my friend might want to bring his truck but when we do the fun stuff he will have to ride with me.

I'm up for helping you with the lift. Sounds like a good experience for me.
