79 j10 lift woes
I'm thinkin about buying a 79 j10 and lifting it up & throwing a winch & HD bumpers front & rear, & possibly some other goodies. I've been thinking about a Rusty's 6" or a BJ"s 6" but I'm not sure which would be the better one to go with, they are the only companies I've seen with lifts that high for j10's. If anyone has any ideas or tips, I would gladdly welcome any info at all. Thanks
Check this site out, it is based out of Grand Prairie, AB and has some very knowledgeable Jeep folks on it. One of them has his own shop and maybe able to get you some killer deals.

you could just byu a cheap suspensin lift with front and rear springs and then do an axelover swap on the front and then lifting blocks on the back. Thats what i was going to do till i relized you dont need a j10 that high to make it go lots of places now im just going for a BDS 4".
Would i be able to run 35 mtr's with just a 4" lift?, I thought that I would have some clearance issues. Eventually I pla on runnineither dana 60" f&r but i might go with 2 1/2 tonne rockwell's and some 48"s or maybe the infamous 54" bogger.Who knows only time will tell.
You should have no problem running them with a 4 inch lift. I was going to see if my friends fit on with my stock springs casue my tires are about 32 inches high. You should send me a picture of your j10 i have only seen 3 including mine in my life.
I also for got about spring sag. My rear leafs are saggig casue of age and abuse yours is older so i can amagin that it is not quite the hiegt it used to be. Im going with a bds 4 inch but it will most likly give it closer to 5 inches. Oh and do you have a dana 44 or amc 20 for your rear axle im kinda curios to when they changed?
i have a 77 J20 when i first lifted my truck i did a soa with a 2" block in the rear anda 3" body lift cleared 35" tsl .since then i have broken my stock leafs tried a set of E-350 springs same result broke those to , the last set i put in were 1980 1 ton rear springs in no problems yet, but chevy rear springs will relocate your rear pushing it further back approx. 1"-2" ,but it does ride alot better now.
