Its okay to have skepticism, I will just deal with carpal tunnel I am receiving from answering it when I am 60. JJ. Anyways, your correct the 03 would be 4" and the 04 would be 2.5" (but they would still sit at the same overall height and would both be able to fit 29's), for which you do not want to go any higher without extreme modification, thats why we limit our lifts to 4". After 4" inches you are dealing with a number of issues, length of brake lines, electrical lines, shifter etc.... The lift we will be a direct bolt on you should have no problems whatsoever, all parts are made on a jig, and are strut extensions are lazer cut to profile, we have only made one mistake on a lift and that was we added supports in the wrong place and the owner couldn't do the install, but the problem was fixed an wa la. We have built lifts for this chassis before so there shouldn't be any new suprises, although you turbo model guys may want to keep an eye on all of the turbo plumming. Almost all of our customers install their own lifts, most of them do it over the weekend in the garage, but my recommendation would be to let a shop install it. If you don't have an hydraulic lift and a plethora of jacks its just plainly put "unsafe."

I would agree that it either helps to have alot of friends and jacks and stuff, or a good shop. Lifting my brat took about 3 people and 4 jackstands and 2 jacks to make sure everything was straight and level to bolt on right.

Well when ever your ready to commit well get this ball rolling, we'll need funds up front to process the order. Hopefully, we can get a couple people in on the buy that way were not just making one or two.

As for tires go "BIG" 29s are my favorite, but if you want you can run 28-27's.

Give us a call if your ready to pay:

(503) 543-5154

Most likely Albie will answer and you will have to tell him your information, or we can accept paypal (although there is a 3% surcharge).

Good going with the significant other

lifting springs, along with the lift kit? how much lift would that give me

also i searched tire rack for 29x9.5x16 with no luck, i have also heard that with the auto trans you cant go more than 3% over stock does anyone have any idea what size that is?

From what I have seen springs can net you close to an extra 2" inches, so the accumalation of both will get you around 6" inches of lift. Now your beginning to talk 3-4 inches shy of humvee clearance . As for the 3% they are talking about difference in tire size, all four tires must be the same size or it will create binding 3% is the allowable amount of difference. It has nothing to do with oversize tires (correct me if im wrong).

I have been told three percent too. I wanted to just get a set of 70's for my auto baja and the guy at Tires Plus said that was too big. He said the transmission would not be able to handle it.

THere is a lot of conflicting info out there. I wish I knew the answer. If you can't go bigger than that, there is not really alot of sense to getting a four inch lift.

But, I want a lift AND the tires to make it worth doing!

You can run ANY tires as long as they are the same size. your will run in to a problem with your speedo and milage as they will be off but the problem with stock is the size of the wheel well.

^^ thoes are great tires ive had them before, thank you.

for allied, i have to wait until after the holidays (gifts/travel) has me a little low on funds, but as soon as they are done im placing that order for the lift, i also contacted ION about thoes springs so hopefully i can get both rolling.
thanks guys!

after researching tires i think im going to end up going with a 235/70/16 Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo they are 118.00 per tire from Tire rack

Actually now that I think about it we can do in January, because like you said "ITS CRUNCH TIME," and we are selling stuff like crazy, so that would be a good way to keep things flowing after christmas. How about the end of January?
