    WHY?
    IMO thats to much of a lift you will run into many drive line probs. such as drive shafts ,steering geomatry, pinion angels. if your tires are a rubb'en break out the sawsall. but just thats my opinion.

    It really depends on how you want to lift it. You can get 8-9 out of a 6 inch suspension lift and a 2-3 inch body lift. Or you could go for an 8 inch suspension lift. You'd probably find alot of information if you did a search for "lift" or "suspension lift". As far as pricing OffroadDesign was able to help me out and beat the prices that a few other places had, I believe that 4wheel parts wholesalers promises to beat any price. Once you know what kind of lift you want you can get more information on brake line and driveline changes etc. :)

    I bought an 8" lift from National Tire and Wheel that only cost me $400. It came with Superlift front springs, rear 5" Superlift blocks, rear Skyjacker add-a-leafs and four Skyjacker shocks. I had to buy steering correction seperately. I also had to drop the transfer case almost 2". Hope this helps
