    Mike (stepdad) and I got a 81 mini to build for him to off-road in. First time with a mini. This truck will be off road only. Plan is to tube and 4-link the rear, exo-cage, arb front, weld the rear, stock 4cyl, leave the 4spd till it fails, crawler gears or t-case doubler. tring to keep the build under 3K.

    I want to lift the front about 3-4 inches who sells good springs at decent prices only need front, going coilover in rear.

    Aso need a power steering box, coil-overs, fuel cell, diff gears used parts ok so if you got any thing let me know.

    will try to have pics up soon

    Thx Rob

    Rears up front are the cheapest option. Marlin sells a 4" spring or Alcan will build whatever you want, but will cost you more $. You'll want to get a power steering box from an IFS truck and the hysteer conversion from Marlin. The factory j-arm setup won't last long on a lifted truck.
