I am going to buy a 4 inch lift for 94 dak it is the tallest one i can find but the thing that really gets under my skin is the price 1500 dollars I am wondering if there might be a place that I can get a lift kit same size or bigger for cheap?

trailmaster really is the only kit available for the older dakotas
sucks i know, but, you gotta do what you gotta do

you may be able to do a salid axle swap for cheaper if you do all the work yourself and only have the driveshafts made

How much difference is there between the gen 1 or 2s and the gen 3 4x4s I just sold a 92 and just bought a 99 with the 3in rancho lift have had both up on lifts in the dealer that i work at and it didn't look like any real differeces to me. Never had them sitting side by side but it looked like the same swaybar setup, same lower control arms, looked like same uppers, looked like same frame. The only thing i saw that is different is the front axle 7.25 in the older ones and dana 35 in the newer ones. Anyone tried or know of someone who tried to put a gen 3 lift on a gen 1 or 2? the tough country 5 1/2in lift for gen 3 is only about $1350. Taller and cheaper than the only lift available for early models. I went through 2 sets of spider gears in my 92's front axle so if you had to change the front axle to the dana 35 you would probably be doing yourself a favor.

Anyone know if gears, lockers, and posi's out of jeep rear dana 35s will fit into gen 3 front axles?
