I need to lift my XJ one little piece at a time...I thought about coil spring boosters but those are pathetic, I could do spacers though. Any ideas? Info/advice would be appreciated.

Almost every company that does lifts does a budget boost of some kind. How high do you want to go on your first try? I have seen several 1-2 inch boosts on eBay.

I was thinking around 3" just to give it some stance, and as sad as it is, I can't afford a body lift.

XJ's are unibody. They cannot be body lifted.

As far as doing a lift on a low budget the best writeup I've seen on it is this one. http://www.rocklizardfabrications.com/home_brew_budget_boost.htm

He ended up with about 2.25" of solid lift.
