I guess you could say that CJ's are money pits. Get rid of it now if you don't think you can stand the drain. Or, slow down. You could buy the rims and tires and go cheap for now on the lift. Rims and tires will cost about $1000. Then you could get a shackle lift and body lift for about $175 if you shop around. This might affect the steering though. Shackle lifts can cause your Caster to be way off and make it difficult or impossible to keep straight on the road. Personally, I'd save my ducketts, like I already did, and get the rims, tires as a package, and the 4" lift kit all at once. Then you can regear the axles one at a time or choose not to regear for a while.

I have no vibrations at all. Lowering the xfer case eases the driveline angles and the DPA aids in steering geometery. The rear springs also come with a 4 degree wedge to help keep driveline angles correct. HTH

Look me up when you're in town. PM me and I'll give you my phone number.

But what ever you do don't lower your transer case!
go to a custom drive shaft or just go get some CV joints.. Lowering the case will case you to have less ground hight and you will high center lol unless your on 38'' tires...

yeah I would say go with a 4'' and maybe a 1'' body, but if you wanna keep your power dont go to 35's unless your ganna put gears/lockers and do a upgrade on your engine... haha and that is aroung $5,000 for all of that, so stick with the saving up, unless u just have to have it now..

You could put a set of TJ flares on it and cut the fenders to open up the wheel wells. I did this to mine and now I think it looks so much better.

Just my $.02
