i work on computers for a living, not much over 10 an hour. need a degree bad...

i only have a few bills (truck) and still live at home and go to college and pay for college. I just saved up a lot of money over summers when i used to cut grass.


i just have a slew of parts that need fixed on the truck now and this will fix most of those problems.

Nice Zach. I'm excited to see how that turns out. I know how it is though, I make $11/hr workin at an Applebees but i am going for my degree in Information Technology (Computer Networking/Forensics). I graduate in July. All my time and money was put into my rangers and F-250 plus paying my bills (truck, phone, car insurance) plus fuel to drive 90+ miles a day to school and home plus watever else i do. It sucks but the satisfaction you get out of paying for stuff yourself and everything makes it all worth it in the end.

It sure would make the initial swap much easier since the kit pieces are made for it...

it is 62" on the 96 XJ axle so 1.5" wider per side. not bad. might handle a little better.
