I might redesign the one I have or just use the old one. Haven't decided yet.

Got some parts cleaned and repainted. That's about all I have done so far besides taking measurements and ordering parts.



I am thinking of ordering some Rough Country 6.5" XJ coils for the front. They are 190lbs instead of the EB's at 300lbs. Plus if I calculated correctly, it should make it 2-3" lower than the EB's.

Aka, what I have on my truck basiclly, gave me 5 inches of lift in the front and that is with the springs broken in. I have to hop into my truck or I can pull myself up in it but far from a jump.

All the parts are ordered. Got a ring and pinion 4.56 to match the front. And ordered some rough country 6.5 xj coils. So everything is on the way for the swap and should be starting soon.
