I want coilovers up front on my '05 4x4

I'm trying to find some kind of a more or less bolt on kit that will allow me to have coilovers up front on my '05 4.0L 4x4. Ideally I'd like to find something that will allow me to keep my stock gears and shift on the fly 4x4 feature with only 1"-2" of lift maximum, and won't increase the width. I do of course realize this will most likely require replacement/modification of control arms, spindles,axles, tie rods/ends, and torsion/sway bars. So far the closest I can find is a kit from dixonbrosracing.com. But it is a 6" lift and it adds 4" out on each side. any feedback would be appreciated, thanks.
