So far i have ordered all four shocks ( rancho RSXs that are the recommended shock for this lift), ive ordered my bump stops, and im waiting to get a price on a set of springs before i go one way or the other.

To do a lift on the KJ in this style you have to have the struts compressed and disassembled using a press. THis i dont have access to. I tried calling around to places i know of in bluffton but theyre all closed on Saturday and Sunday ( the days id be doing the lift) does anyone know of a place on the south end of fort wayne that i should call?

update:

i now have all of the parts ordered.
ive been kindly offered by a KJ guy from Dayton to go down there and he would help me do the lift.

*rubs hands together*

Ill get this lift done yet.

FWIW.. people have been asking me what size tires i have and what size i can put on it.

apparently without modifications that im not willing to do... i can go up to a 32"..

i currently have a 30" tire.

Summary of hours and hours of homework.
1. the stock KJ suspension is kaa kaaa the springs start to sag immediately
2. puck or spacer lifts are cheap but dont fix the suspension problem. ( yes there are several made, most popular is Daystar)
3. the most reccomended lift is the OME/Rancho ( or bilstein) lift. which "fixes" the sag issue.. you will get a resultant 3" lift
4. lifting above 4" can cause damage to the CVjoints and will require modification to or special CV joints.

if you want more info let me know.

Edit: the spacer lift doesnt give you as much flex. youre much more likey to stack your springs than with a spring lift... soo if you get a spacer lift. no more rock wheelies like your pic.
