I don't know about the Nth system but with respect to a 2004 and metric vs imperial ... I have a 2004 and constantly find both metric and imperial bolts used. It's almost like Jeep used whatever hardware they had laying around haha.

Look up my posts in the FAQ section on painting steel and you will not have to do it as often

I hate to ask mostly because I think that I already know the answer.... But here it goes anyway, does anyone know where I could possibly find a kit to buy? I've always wanted the Nth lift but never had the money.

That stuff is pricey and heavy. I think I would have to be living in a rock garden to justify all the time to install, money and weight gain.

Just about everything on the Nth Degree website, including the complete kit, is "out of stock".

Does anybody know someone who has the kit wanting to upgrade to something else?

If you ever drove one down the road - your opinion would change. Road manners were just as good as off road performance.

Having steel skids or other weight at or near the bottom of the chassis helps to lower the center of gravity - a good situation! I changed to aluminum bumpers from steel and don't carry a 100 pound spare tire on the tailgate.
