    Been there done that! You will spend several times more than you expect. I didnt get all high tech either, all I did was lift a rig that they dont make big kits for. The biggest I could find was a 4".[​IMG] I ended up at 17" in lift.[​IMG] All the custom stuff adds up fast. If your talking 4 link or somthing exotic, it gets real pricey.

    I think that we probably need more info. What vehicle? How high you want to lift? Whether you want suspension or body lift?

    all I know is that in some area's this is not "legal" in Vermont for instance, you can't get a rig inspected with a "boched" suspension. local guy had his truck towed becuase it was like 4-5 differenet "kits" put together, with some other odd's and ends he had come up with. might want to check on that first.

    IF ONLY THE 3 YEAR OLD COULD TURN A WRENCH

    If anyone has a desire to see the Cherokee I can E-mail them to you. That is the rig I was referring to in my last post, No lift kits for it and I wanted it BIG! The pics I have found so far in the computer change it is 6" lower than its last redo. Still looking for the pics of it after the 2nd lift and full convertable conversion. (They did not come w/ removeable tops) [​IMG]

    I suppose I should be more specific, Its actually pics of the Cherokee and my Blazer. I had my wife down load them and E-mail them to me off the old puter, so I could save the mail to forward to BigTex and the Jeep pics were in the same folder. I saved the E-mail so I could send the pics to anyone that wanted to see the Blazer or the Jeep.
