Hey guys, new to the site and new to Jeeps. I have a 1969 CJ5 that was built in canada that I'm wanting to restore. Has the soft top and the stock hard top. It has the V6 and drives great. It does have some rust in the floor pans which I am going to fix while I have the body off for paint. I have a few basic questions that I wanted to ask you guys before I start ordering all of the parts in.
This jeep will be used for mostly city driving. Might take it off road a few times a year but nothing crazy. Mostly looking for the look.
I would like to lift it up and run some 33" or 35". Should I go with a 2.5" or a 4" lift?
What's my option for a affordable lift kit? Can I get one for around $500?
I think most of the kits I've seen come with the shocks, lift springs, and hardware. Will I need to order anyother parts to make a 2.5 or 4" kit work on my 1969?
Thanks for the help guys!
