RC makes an upgrade kit to LA's for $1099 then you could do the springs and shocks later or put a BB on top of your 4" springs. However, you will probably need longer shocks anyway.

If you haven't already went to a double single cardan DS you'll need to do that too.

Look up CCOR on the site here. They will treat you right (and probably do better on the price).

When looking to lift 6.5 inches, cheap is not how you should explain the process.

Do it once and do it right. Take your time, save your funds, and purchase a lift and all the parts needed to do it right and make it last.

Also steering angles and binding, caster and pinion angle issues, bigger swaybars..

Once you go past 4 in, there ain't no thing such as "cheap"

Just another old fart in a Jeep... watchout younguns!!!

Just get 3 2"BB and stack up to get 6" total. It will be super cheap.
