Re: \'74 CJ5 Lift ??

The only 3-4" lifts I`ve seen available lately for older CJ`s are a 3" Black Diamond kit offererd by Quaratec and a 3 1/2-4" Skyjacker kit from 4WD Hardware. Both are listed in their current catalogs. I`ve never run or personally seen anything more than a 2 1/2 lift on an earlier CJ5, so I can`t comment from personal expierence. I had recently been looking into a 3-4" lift for my `72. I`ve heard nothing but negative comment`s about that much lift on a sprung under CJ5. The only positive I`ve found are the 3" long leaf`s offered by Holbrook, and with them your still only talking about a 2 1/2 realistic lift, but with great articulation. The last time I checked though, They wanted $600.00 for the spring`s alone. I`m convinced that even though it may cost alittle more in the begining, going spring over is a more cost effective approach to lifting a jeep and ending up with good flexability.
