Shackles

Ive been looking into getting shackles just to help get a little more height for my jeep im running stock right now but acouple people have told me this is worth it.

My first question is besides the shackles what else do you have to buy.

Second whats a good price or group to buy?

And is this really worth it or should i just save for something else?

Thanks,
Frenchie

id say start with shackels and get tires that will just fit. then save up to buy the lift and you already have a decent sized tire to run with your lift

Depends on the size of the shackles he is looking at. Longer shackles make for looser steering and wear of parts. Also YJ's are known for breaking the front hanger off while running longer shackles offroad.
