For the front, I would take a stock height pack of yj springs but reg. YJ springs won't cut it, you'll wrap them and snap them so you'd have to look at some options. My front is SOA stockers and my 4 banger wraps them. I'm going to use a XJ packs main leaf with the small eye cut off, then the large eye will sleeve over the YJ pack eye and will help reduce wrap. I don't know if that would be enough for your motor though... I'd french your front hangers too. Frenching your hangers at both ends will save you half of the amount of change (move them up 4 you save 2" of height).

Lastly you could cut that 2" body lift in half and save an inch there too. Unless you need it for your motor/t-case set up.
Yeah, i was thinking of getting some XJ springs for the rear just was not sure on what springs i would need for the front so that it would be level.

Oh and it is just and 1" body lift not 2". Thanks for the input

It will be fuel injection, Because i already have it. But propane would be sweet.

Thinking about buying a redneck ram. Not sure if there are other brands that might be better or less money. Any input would be great. If i can do it cheap, then i might have some money to get a locker for the front. I was going to four link the back but would rather spend the money on a locker. and four link it next year.

Looks nice! I'm jealous about the boat sides, I've been wanting to do that for a long time, just haven't done it yet since I'd have to redo my rockrails.... I know it's a dumb reason.

Thanks guy's, I like the way it sits now also. I need to do something with the gas tank. Would like to buy a new one but, GenRight wants like $900. and that money that i rather use for a locker. so if anyone know of any tanks that are a lot less, let me know.

This one seems to be a commonly tank used. You can still have the back seat in and you have better ground clearance. It's also a lot cheaper than Genrights at $230. Hold 15 gallons and with some minor modification you can run a stock YJ in the tank fuel pump.
