Over 4 inches? Go to JBA and get his 6 inch coilover lift
then also order the steel front diff with at least 4.56 gears in it, regear the rear to match , throw in some lockers , install some 33s and there ya go
Pull about what 10,000 out of the bank to start

At that point I'd either SFA or sell the jeep and buy a Cummins. The Cummins would be cheaper too.

I thought you ran 4" in the 790's?

And what would my max height for stock UCA's be?

Wouldn't do it unless the Cummins was in a big rig and then I'll still take a Cat

So there any spring set/lift plate combination that would get me over 4? And I would need the JBA UCA's at that point right?

I was out of town when a buddy of mine received all of his parts for his lift, he couldn't wait for me to get back into town.
So guess what he did, in a gravel sloping driveway, with the stock KJ jack , yep installed a full OME lift right there!

One guy bought a Frankenlift for his daughters KJ, since she was about 900 miles from home he paid me to install it. I installed it in a parking lot at the university she was attending

Going over 4 inches of lift creates a new set of problems, even with JBA UCAs you will have spring/UCA contact
stick with 3.5 or so, works good, looks good with 245-75s

I was just curious because I'd be at a max of 3.25 before adding skids and sliders and didn't know if I would be able to compensate for that.

Skids weigh hardly anything at all in the grand scheme of things

Alright that's what I was hearing. Thanks for all the help. While I'm tempted to do it on my own... I don't really have the knowledge so I guess I'm off to predator tomorrow
