Anyone know where I can get the 5" RCD Coilover suspension lift for a 2001 4x4 4.0 for a good price and if it will fit 35's?

it's not like a body lift takes that much longer to install. I mean both will take you all weekend with a buddy but would be an amazing change.

As said, the RCD lift has been discontinued. So I would get a 4" Superlift and 3" bodylift for 35's. If you want to take it a step further you could convert to coilovers with Deaver or Softride Skyjacker leaf springs.

If you've got 115k already and if you've got an auto, you'll be looking at a tranny rebuild by 150k. If you're a manual, you'll REALLY want to get those gears in asap. The 3.0 and the 4.0 SOHC don't overcome tire sizes too well.
