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

what are your plans for the jeep? is it a street queen or will it see offroad action?
me personaly i wouldnt run a 4" kit without new LCA's.

X-2; A cheap lift is going to be prone to the dreaded Death-Wobble.

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.

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.

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 $ 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..
