Just put 30X9.50s on my XJ, and it's rubbing a bit in the front. The guy I bought it from put the add a leaves in the rear due to sagging, so the fit back there is fine. I just need a little bit in the front. I can get coil spacers, but does anyone know if the up country coils will give me enough? How about ZJ or TJ coils? I know each vehicle is different but please share experiences. TIA

Up Country coils will give you about 1" of lift
You can get up to 2" with coil spacers
ZJ v8 coils will give you some lift, 1-2"
stock TJ coils will drop you 1-1.5"
f150 front coils(not sure which year) will fit with a little modification of the coil itself, but they're real stiff on a light vehicle like an XJ.

I'm going to think seriously about it Brian, thanks! Would you mind PMing me some contact info? Does anyone know if second and third gen. coils are equitable? Will I get the same lift from the '93 upcountrys on a '98?

I am running 1.75" spacers ($35) with ZJ springs (eBay, $30) and net 3" in front. AAL in back nets over 3". With a shock upgrade it's a great ride.

Oh, also had to put in a t-case drop...
