I can fab my own but wondering if theres anywhere to buy them online also any other sites people can give me for aftermarket stuff for a wj would be great ! Thank
Pics and a build to follow
Also whos ran the 4'' rough country x series lift and any complaints ?
The WJ's Unibody is extremely strong compared to ZJ's and XJ's.
I wouldn't bother with any unibody stiffening unless you're running 37's or above. 33's and hard wheeling will have no effect.
They are happiest being lifted 3" based on feedback over the years. I'd aim there and with serious fender trimming/bumper trimming you might be able to fit 33's. If that doesn't sound like what you want then save up and go with a long arm lift.
Kolak, IRO, and kevins off road are good sources for aftermarket stuff. After you start pricing out a build you might want to seriously consider fabbing up your own stuff. I'd say at least rock sliders and a rear bumper should be easy enough.
