Sounds a lot like my build....er....unbuild. My ex. DD '93 V8 ZJ with 230k on it, I went the ultra-cheap path, front springs out back, JKS ACOS spacers (1/2 the money invested in the entire project, but worth it) lots of "trimming" and a freebie set of 33's. Then I added an Explorer 8.8 (welded of course) and a HP disco 30 (re-geared 4.11:1) out of an XJ for the front, threw in a Lock-Rite (the other 1/2 of the money...WAAY worth it) while I was at it.
Keep it cheap and beat with reckless abandon....
