I read a couple of sites where some guys make their own body
lift from boat trailer rollers. The roller is basically a hard rubber
that will stand any amount of stress.
Total parts cost around $35 bucks compared if you buy them for $110
bucks from a jeep gadget, part supplier.
Thanks,
F

Awhile ago I read in a magazine (I believe 4wheel&offroad) about some homemade lift kit horror stories. One guy used hockey pucks. The rubber in the pucks eventually crumbled and the guy totally screwed up his engine compartment when the radiator settled. I'll look around and see if I can find the article. Just be careful with what type of material you use.
