$3222 isn't too bad really.

What kind of gas mileage are you getting with the 4.5" and 31's?

I met this guy with 7" of lift on 35's and he was getting 7 MPG.

I'm hoping my mileage won't be too bad after 3.5" of lift and 31's. I wouldn't be as concerned about my mileage if my Jeep wasn't my primary vehicle and if my girlfriend didn't just move 150 miles away for college.

My 4.0 has almost 218,XXX miles on it. It runs great. No obvious sign of age yet. I don't think its going to be rebuilt though. When it's done, it's done.

What are your future plans for your Jeep besides the new engine?

on the highway i get about 18 in the city maybe 14-15.
Next march i'm probably going to have the new motor in, lockers front and rear, maybe 4.11 gears, and 33" tires. I'm definately going to have to get my transmission rebuilt, i'm pretty sure the owner before me never changed the trans fluid and fried the torque converter. and I'll be getting a ford 8.8 rear end with disc brakes. much easier to find gears and lockers for the 8.8 than the chrys 8.25

havent updated this is a while. I was recently t-boned in a parking lot in the jeep, damaged the driver side rocker and pushed the drivers door in a little, nothing too bad. Added another $116 to my grand total of invested money, bought a Rustys Trac bar frame bracket and a bushed hoop end to convert my trac bar from the crappy tie rod end that kept binding and breaking.

Rough Country 4.5" full spring kit.
If your on a budget and don't mind buying the extra parts needed once you clear the magic 4" of lift, its a good kit. i've abused it and nothing has gone bad but the monotube shocks that came with the kit for free. The ride is actually really good once you get the trac bar and the steering geometry correct. If your going to go with the full 4.5" kit from them that includes the rear springs, I'd go with a Rustys trac bar and trac bar bracket, the adjustable trac bar rough country sells uses a tie rod end at the frame mount and everytime i'd flex the suspension it would bind the rod end and break it and i'd have the death wobble at the slightest pebble in the road. I recently bought rustys hd trac bar bracket with brace and when i went to install it the adjustable trac bar i bought from rough country was too long and i had to cut it down to make rustys mount work, but now that its all together i can hit bums in the street and no wobble Smile
