cheapest i know of is rough country and i dont' know if you will care for the shocks and you will want to do the sye/cv which also requires rear adjustables so i don't think a 4" lift should go with the word "cheap" (at least full 4" suspension)

i suggest a 3" coil with 1" body. a lot cheaper as you should be able to get away with a tcase drop so you don't need rear adjustables. and you still get 4" of lift.

How did you roll it? any pics? I've been asking a lot of questions about roll overs, after last week when I almost made mine go belly up.

You didn't see on the mountain this weekend sweetie... My finace was white knuckled on that trail. LOL It was awesome. She swears I almost flipped it, and I tend to agree. It went way too far over.

If you're going to spend the money on a long arm kit, then go with the Rock Krawler kit. RE is good, but RK is better.

If those calculations are correct then I was close but I think still safe. I only had 3 tires on the ground, and was rocking back and forth. It was fun but scary. And AzTJ why you always gotta put your .02 in? LOL
