I read that on a xj the front springs could be replaced with ford F150 springs to get 3" lift, could those or other springs be used on a GC front or rear to get a budget lift? Yeah I'm cheap Embarassed but I gotta feed the wifes dang horse and he eats like a horse. Rolling Eyes

well you can put zj springs in a xj to give the xj a lift so i would assume you can put f150 springs in a zj

btw no one puts f150 springs in there xj because its so dahm stiff

if you are that cheap u could do front to rear swap, that will give you about 3-3.5 inches.
