If you go cheap, you get cheap. Lifts are something that you should not skimp on. Leave the shackles for the junk pile.

Anylift is a lot of work. Body lifts affect the coolling system, shifter, clutch linkage, etc. Basically anythiong that connects betweeen the body & the frame.

Suspension lifts affect anything that connects between the axles and the frame, brake lines, driveshafs, swaybars, tracbars, shocks, etc.


Go to the PJC meeting and find out who has a CJ that you loke the looks of and check out what they did do get there.

PS, Rough Country lifts suck, IMO.
