there are a couple big lifts out there....and they either aren't shipping..or are on the verge of shipping so we really don't know much about them.

Calmini, AC, SLR, Fabtech are all possibilities. don't know the pricing on the AC or fabtech ones, but SLR is alot mroe than the calmini.

alot of the guys have been doing the 'mini-lifts' which raise between 1.5-3 inches depending on what you do, and that'll run you less than $500 total.
these consist of a spacer or replacement coil in the front, and AAL or shackle in the rear.

here's a thread with some info that might help
http://thenewx.org/phpbb2/viewtopic.php?t=1549

If I were to limit myself to $500 I would do this:
Front: AC coils--$140
Rear: Deaver 2.5" mini-pack--$175
Rancho rs9000--$150
brake lines--$70

Grand Total: $535
you could run something like this but use the radflo 0-3" adjustable coilovers instead of the AC coils and that would put you at about $1100

There is a little mounting bracket that mounts it flat to the underside (pointing down).

PIC! Ok, look where the wire bends you can see two holes that the zip tie is in, that is where Jim drills for the bracket, I wanted mine closer to pivot point so I inverted the plug in the mount by trimming off some part of it on both sides so that it would fit, That got the wire pointing to driver side and gave me more cord to bring it more center, as shown here, mounted in my location with same mount. Had I used the provided holes, I would tear the wires out of something on a right turn. Bringing it more to center allows more flex in both directions. But here is how it mounts, and out of way to wheel. (Won't catch on anything) You gain about 8" clearance with this setup as opposed to a factory with a hitch. MC



And I still ended up making an extendor like this. Pictured with Hi Lift Jack foot and keys.
