Instead of buying a hole new lift kit can I buy a long arm kit to upgrade it from a short arm to long arm?

Depending of what your current lift is YES.

Several companies make long-arm upgrades...well just about everyone that makes a long-arm lift does.

Rough Country makes a long arm kit, so they probably make a long arm upgrade. On a different note....I love the color of your Jeep. Welcome to the forum!

Most long arm upgrades only require an existing 4" lift, so you would be good to go.
