Welcome,

take a look at some other pics pages such as www.nagca.com for the Wjs and you'll be able to see what you like.

For a six inch lift with great steering, may I suggest

http://www.claytonoffroad.com/

He has the best long arm kit available. Tons better than rockkrawler.

Be prepared to spend some cash. If you go cheap, you'll hate it.

May want to check out Teraflex's S4W+BB to make 6". I dunno if the LCA's would need to be replaced or what, someone else would know better than I. You could always get adjustable, but I would get LAs. HTH

Teraflex is junk. If you want to replace bushing every 6 months and still have clanking arms go ahead. Claytons Long arm is the best.

Sounds like a good idea, but you might want to start saving. Especially for Grand Cherokee's. Everything is so expensive.
Good luck with everything (Make sure to post pictures)
