spring over requires, longer shocks, longer brake lines, driveshaft modifications to both front and rear driveshaft, SYE for transfercase, traction bar to control axle wrap. custom drag link, drop pitman arm or high steer to make the steering geomitry back to near stock angles. all in all it will be expensive if you ad up the parts but the outcome of the lift will be awesome

if you keep it spring under, a new full susp lift kit can cost anywhere from 500 US to 1200 US. if you want to go cheap route - 2" body lift and 1" shackles, and then start saving for a full lift kit

To do a spring over properly will cost you as much or more than a good suspension kit and without some kind of ladder bar axle wrap is a huge problem usually resulting in broken dshafts tcase outputs rear end pinoins and yokes.
A body lift will get you by for now.Save your money by a good kit,rubicon express is awesome and one of the most complete extreme kits you can get.Call Matt at JEAP Thrills 604 465 5559 they are rubicon direct.

I put the 4.5" Rubicon Express lift in my CJ. It's a great kit, really complete, you don't need to buy anything else but the kit itself. It's a spring under kit FYI

3" body and 4" shackles + 35" tires. good enough till I get another daily driver.
