If you look up parts on Kragen, for a specific vehicle, after you find it there is a link to 'Show other vehicles this thing fits'.

http://www.partsamerica.com

very handy.

There isn't much to the GC rocker guards, a couple of frame mounts, angle material, tubes on the outer. heck, I could make a set in an hour






if I had the space and tools, oh, and knew how to weld too

The lesser expensive shocks are all pretty much the same thing. If you look at the ProComp, Rancho etc, they all usually ship or are sold plain, you jsu add the decal and viola, Name Brand Shock. Quality is, well, ok, they're just regular old shocks just like you can get at the parts store.

If you're looking at the nitro (gas) shocks, they tend to be a little better but can be stiff. The Rancho and Pro-Comp adjustable shocks are actually not bad for a budget price and can be found on sale a lot on-line, usually a buy three get one free thing.

But if you plan on a lift look for package deals, eBay has good deals all the time on last years stuff kinda thing and you can get springs, shocks and all the goodies pretty reasonably and remember you'll need the longer travel shocks if you do a suspension lift to get you over those mean, nasty rocks

There's some budget, junkyard lifts out there too, just depends on how and what you want to do

Just need some measurements then. Angle iron bolted to the tub makes it easy for a YJ.


Jason. Get some bumper material and a bunch of 4" cut off wheels, 9/16 arbor

2 x 4 x 1/4 x 54" long.
1 foot of 3/4 x 3
2-3 feet of 2" x 1/4 for mounting tabs and to close off the ends.

piece of 1/4 for winch plate, if you want one. Don't recall the measurements.

Go see him with $100 worth of $5's in one pocket and 2 $20's in the other pocket.



probably cost about $100 worth of metal to make then unless we could scrape up bits and pieces.

Happy to build some, if we get good plans and if it makes sense.

Bumpers cost $300 - $500 and we can build them for $60. If you can find sliders for pretty close to the cost to make them I would probably make sense to buy them. Of course that holds true for any fab work.

There is no shortage of deals if you have no time limit; just wait til the right thing comes along and pounce on it.

We can discuss it over beer and pizza.

Thanks jeff, great point i do have plenty of time so when i'm ready to purchase again we'll see what the cost benefits are between building and finding some used ones. i do have a belly pan though that i need to fabricate some mounts for i picked the pan up for $10 bucks thanks to eric so that's a project we can do soon. when are you guys planing to fabricate your guy's stuff?
