you need springs, shocks, track bars, control arms, body lift, motor mount lift, atlas, gears, tires, wheels, bumpstops, winch, bumper, super charger, nitrous, seats, belts, cage, 3 midgets, 4 stocks of corn, 5 golden rings, and 2 million dollars.

You forget the muffler bearings and the kinuter valve to compensate for the alter ratio axis of trans molecular polarity!

No I didn't. The 3 midgets take care of it.

We'll help you spend your money...

I have a Rubicon Express but also look at OME and Rock Krawler to. But if you go too big you'll need gears. Especially with a 4cyl

OK, we are getting nowhere, but we're makin great time!

2 Questions to start;

What are you gonna do with it?

What size tire are you looking at?

Unless you are planning on building a monster like Mr C's rig, keep it reasonable 3" of lift should be plenty, you can run 32-33" tires and probably won't need to worry about a slip yoke or death wobble. You may still need to re-gear, but that's another thread.
