andrew383 how bout re 3.5SF kit its rite at $1k tho.the standard kit is $600 but no lca's.

there's a set of used 2.5 ome hd springs on JF for $180.you could add shocks and jks 1.25 BL and still have $$ left over for some skids or somethin...
then there's rc 2.5 kit with there shocks and 1.25 BL for $400 i think..

AzTJ Are you looking for 4" or just enough to clear some 33" tires?

There are other ways to get the desired lift. A 3" lift from Full-Traction is ~$500... then a 1" body lift is ~$100... then ~$300 for some good shocks like OME's. That is close to your $1000 budget and you shouldn't need new control arms.

infamousbliss it looks like i can get a kit with lca's for about $2100. that's a little out of my price range right now. i alreay have a 2 inch lift but is just not enough. i need something that is going to be very off road capable. i do use my vehicle as a dd as well though. i would sacrifice the almighty sought after confort for funtionality. i'm pretty sure i have right around $1000 to spend, but i want a kit that will last me more than a year like my previous pro-comp that i am replacing. any idea's any 1. i am will to piece together a kit for myself if i have to. maybe buy the jks lca's and ome shocks and springs. i already have a drop pitman arm and a track bar relocator sitting in boxes. what else am i going to need? do i need longer axles or a sye kit? i want to try and have this all done before spring and i have the money now.

AzTJ Go to DPG Offroad if you want an OME lift. They do it right. And include everything you need for the proper lift size.
