Hello all im new to the boards and new to offroading seen in a jeep. I owned a KFX400(atv) up til this week. So here is what i have.

1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee
4.0L 6 cylinder
Otherwise its all stock

Here is what i would like to do

I want to be able to go through the local mudholes with it and still use it as a street legal machine. None of the local mudholes are huge. I made it through them on my KFX. Im looking to keep my beginning spending to around 1K.

Any help or thoughts will be greatly appreciated. Im big on DIY projects. If i cant mod my own machines then ill blow them up trying.

Thanks
Patton

Where are you located??? Are there any laws concerning lift in your area..

Budget boost is the simplest cheapest lift.. Search for it here there are lots of info and links for kits..

It gives you 2" of lift and allows you to fit 30's 31's if you dont mind a little trimming ...


Or you could do the front to rear swap... Which is taking your front coils and moving them to the back and buying 3" front springs..

either way .You will get 31's on and That should be enough for light mudding..
