4 inch body lift? That might be a worse idea than the Hindenburg...

for $200, you'd have a hard time making one any cheaper.

steering wheel extension, brackets to drop the radiator, brackets for front and rear bumpers, i think theres a couple extensions for grounding straps, a shifter extension if you have a manual. Thats all i can think of.
You would be way better off just waiting till you have the money to buy a 3" body.

youll need raidator dropdowns unless u have an e-fan bolts will be around $1-3.00 each, filler neck would be pretty cheap if u can find the pipe in short lengths, and ull have to get 3x2 or 4x2 square tubing (only will need 2-3 inches) for radiator dropdowns, brackets to hold top of raidator, umm youll need pretty thick piping like 1/8th inch and weld circles onto top and bottom for better support but the circles will need holes for new bolts and bolts will be 1/2in and dont know what size until i no what size lift, i guess thats it hope this helps
