After looking through this I see some good and some bad with this setup. Any opinions before I go somewhat in this same direction with my 86 XJ?

yeah, im still primarily shooting for that kit ever since you showed me it. I'm just pondering about a completely custom kit Smile Just from figuring even used parts from the junkyard I'd be running close to the same price as the 4.5" kit you have. The only plus side to the junkyard kit would be I'd get a greater knowledge of how things come together. This is my first XJ build and I really wanted to try something that would stand out before I jumped on for a guaranteed good suspension. I'm still in highschool and the idea of having a 2.5L cherokee with thrown together parts crawling all over these brand new chevys and fords out at my school would make my day.

yea thats just it though, used parts. and the only knowledge you will gain will be how to remove and install suspension components. Which if you buy a lift you will still learn the same concept

I was looking at the trailblazer kit on rocky roads website. I'm seriously considering it but, at almost twice what you want to spend not sure its what you want.

But, rocky road has some good looking budget lifts. Check'em out.
