Actually these are half way through the lift. The specs are as follows...
Before-2wd beam in front, Dana 35 in rear (sprung under)
Now..
Dana 30 in front (waiting to become 4wd)
Rockkrawler 4.5" coils
Rough Country track bar
Stock uppers and lowers for right now
Chrysler 8.25 sprung over in rear

For these pics the rear was just jacked up to show it level, the front was actually sitting on the 4.5" coils. My buddy who was helping me (Comancheon33) finished the rear about 20 minutes after I left his place. I will be putting 33"s on before it goes out of his yard because he informs me because he doesn't want something that he helped put together seen on the street with 235s. I'm also eventually going to trim up to the fender lip because I don't plan on putting flares back on. Anyway enough typing, here's the pictures...

Yeah I know it, it looks like it should've been sitting that way from the factory in my opinion. It will look awesome with 33"s I'm sure. Hopefully this weekend. Thanks for the compliments guys.

Nevermind, I just saw it had vent windows. So just mirrors off a 97+

Yeah well for sure the lowers, the uppers might stay stock for a while because I may end up going longarm. Don't want to dump too much money right now if I'm just going to redo the whole thing. The lowers are waaay stretched though, we had one hell of a time getting that axle positioned.

Yeah, you got it, just mirrors right now, although I have 97+ doors on my 90 Cherokee and love them (minus the interior part). I will probably do the same to the Comanche soon here, because the doors are a rusty mess. And yeah, I can't wait for the 33"s

I scored a set of four Doetsch-Techs on eBay for 70 bucks shipped. They're in now. Those are also some sweet $50 33"s on there. I can't complain for the price, they really make it look big. I love it. Now all that's left is bending up brake lines, throwing the ZJ backing plates and calipers on, and hopefully putting in an XJ proportioning valve. It does rub very very slightly too so the front is going to have to be trimmed slightly. I think it came together very nicely, and mad props to Dustin for the use of the garage and welding skills. Tell me what you guys think now.

pretty sweet! I'm looking to get an MJ but looking for a 5spd 4wd is kinda hard to find.

not really find a cheap 2wd 5 speed and an XJ and built it from there that is what I have done or well I had a 4x4 5speed MJ that was junk so all that went into my red one.

Plus keep your eyes on Comanche Club.com there are some sweet deal that come up from time to time

after seeing the initial garage shots all I could think was 33x10.5x15 for some reason...... just imagined it with skinny tires on stock wheels.

Its just me, I am really into that sleeper look lately..... reasonable lift, stock wheels, 31-33x10.5 tires, stock flares, mild bumpers.

looks good regardless of my opinion!

pizza cutters are awesome.

those shocks you got, from a dealer or bought used, I'm in need of new shocks, and $70 would do it right.

eBay, there is a company doing a blowout deal on Doetsch Techs. Not sure if they have any of them left. It's weird there are like 6 different numbers to choose from and for me it was like $72.xx shipped. I think the auction price is buy it now $50 or so.
