Couple of Questions (Lift, Vendors, Paint)

Hi guys,
I finally have my jeep in proper working order (just did a 242HD swap a couple weeks ago) and I wanted to get started on my build. First I have to repair a couple small rust spots, and I was wondering if anyone knew where to get the correct mopar touch up paint for the "Deep Slate Pearl Coat"? I looked up the mopar part number that I found on WJJeeps.com and I couldn't find anything. Any help in that department would be great.

Okay next, I want to start building my jeep up more to get increased ground clearance so I stop damaging my undercarriage. I was looking at the RCX 4" X-Series lift for $750 because I don't really have the time or money for a long arm kit, and I know it's a pretty complete kit. I was planning on buying that and the RC "performance steering stabilizer" because my brother has a RC lift on his XJ and it's fairly high quality, it hasn't had any real problems. I know some people swear by Rough Country and some people avoid it like the plague, but I don't plan on wheeling it too hard. The other kit that I was looking at was the IRO 3" kit, but it isn't as high, and I would need to buy a trackbar with it, and quick discos. Would love to hear people's opinions, my mind is fairly made up on the RC lift, but I still want to make sure I'm not making a big mistake.

Also, I know that there are vendors for Rough Country on the forums, but I wasn't able to find any, and I was wondering about who I should talk to about getting prices under MSRP on the kit and stabilizer?

Thanks in advance guys

Take the part number for the paint to a sherman williams store. They can make it up for you and even put it in rattle can.

I ran the RCX kit on my last WJ. I loved it. No problems whatsoever and I beat the hell out of it. Hit up casanova4x4 on here for pricing. As for the steering stabilizer, go with a moog super trail boss. You can get it on rockauto for less than the RC one. Ive had both the RC and the moog, and I like the moog better and its cheaper.
