I want to lift my jeep 1.5 or 2''. I'm in highschool and i'm pretty broke. Has anyone lifted their jeep without buying a kit before? If so how did you do it? I was thinking just extend the mounts where the leaf springs are bolted.

You could do a leaf spring shackle lift.

A shackle kit will raise your jeep 1-2". I bought one years ago for around $75. The kit did the whole jeep.
