I'm just wondering if anyone knows any info about using early cherokee (FSJ) leaf springs to lift a YJ. I've heard it gets you around 2" or so. what if any are the catches? please e-mail me directly at [email protected]
thanks

I don't know anything about your spring question, but I met this guy in a parking lot one time who had a 2.5" lift on his Wrangler that cost under $200. He used add-a-leafs to get 1.5" of lift and a 1" body lift. He was able to fit 31x10.50 w/o fender rubbing/trimming. It looked vey nice and for under $200, I'd call that cheap.

Fulsize jeep springs are a great option, I did a bit of research on them before I decided on 2" YJ springs for my toy. They are slightly longer then YJ springs(about 2 inches) which gives you a better shackle angle, but are slightly narrower but this should not be a problem. look for a 6-9 leaf pack and measure the lengths carefully as the spring lengths differ year to year and you will gain about 2" of lift and some rather soft springs
