88 MJ Build / Axle Swap with Q's

Well sold my xj... wanted to try something new and picked up an 88mj and 91mj ("parts one"). Both are long bed, the 88 is 4x4 manual inline 6, the 1991 is 2wd inline 6 auto. Plan is to build the 4x4 one and sell the parts one (all it needs is a fender grille and bumper).... Anyways, got a matching set of axles off a cherokee, 29 spline 8.25 rear and dana 30 front matching 3.55 gears. Im looking to do a SOA swap in the rear but thats where my question comes, I'd like to keep it around 3.5-4" lift in the rear and lift the front 4.5", can I do that with mopar leaf spring perches, 2wd comanche leafs and stock xj shackles? Will it affect how it rides? Cant afford long arms but getting RC short arms and drop brackets.

How I got her [/IMG]

Test fit 33s and no lift [IMG][/IMG]

Front axle clean up and paint.. love this stuff - rustoleum hammered

Random: where abouts in VA are you located? I'm in the midst of an MJ build in Woodbridge, VA. Would be good to see another MJ'er around.
