hrm...my cherokee is pretty much ready for it. Gota get this other set of 6" springs on the front once I get them in a month or so. Although I am sure I would make it fine with the 4" springs.

What mods does your chero have?

Depending on time frame I may be interested.

Right now, mostly stock, except 3" body lift & fender trimming to clear 33's, and CV joint front driveline, soon to have spring-over and CV joint rear driveline, maybe with a shackle reversal.

The rubicon can be a pain without a locker. Lots of off camber stuff that can make a truck with open difs do a lot of spinout work. SOA would definately hellp, although personally I wouldent go with a shackle reversal up front.

ahh you mean shackle flip [img]smile.gif[/img]

I thought you ment shackle reversal where you take the shackle on the front springs and move it to the rear eye, and make the front mount solid. Disreguard what I said [img]smile.gif[/img]

For the rear just buy one of river beast shackle inversion kits and your done. Its all bolt on, and it matches a front soa perfectly.

well the front gives 6-7" of lift. no way can you usse 6-7" blocks in back. River beast kits arent a whole lot. Just a few piece of metal.

Otherwise there is no cheap way to get that lift. 4" springs and 2" blocks would get you real close, but then 4" springs cost more then river beast kit do.

I won't have vacation until January ( started last september, have to be there for one WHOLE jan-dec year, so I can't this year). I MIGHT be able to go somewhere for the weekend, though, if not the 'con, then where?

Grass Valley? that sounds cool ( no pun intended ), and plus, I know a couple of people that used to work with me up there, so , Stuka, what do you think? I'm sold on it, how about you?

Well...in the winter I drive in snow every day hehe. I cant really think of a reason to go drive 3 hours away to drive in the same white stuff I do on my way to work everyday. Thats the reason I havent gone in the past.

EDIT: there will be a run to the niagra trail soon if we can get it going. SLOwag should have his rig fixed in time to go test it saturday morning (anybody else is welcome to come, La Grange OHV area).

So soon as his rig is ready to go, then we can get a real trip planned.
