Has anyone used a Skyjacker 4" system on their ScoutII ? Does it lift a full four inches? And what size tires does it allow for? Does anyone know about the Triangle springs or National Springs? I know that these are suppossed to be very good (at least the Triangles are) but what about the price?

Re: Skyjacker

I heard that Triangle springs are the best. You actually get your 4 inches. Super Scout Specialist (937-525-9782) has the system for $440..This is the route I'm going to take. I called them and asked about tire size for the Triangles. They said 33's would work fine.. Hope this helps...

Re: Skyjacker

I bought the Skyjacker 4" lift. I netted less than 2" of rear lift, but over 3" up front.

I ran 31s and they rubbed in the rear. I added 2" shackles (3.5" total rear lift at that point - after I removed the hard top) and ran 33s - they rubbed worse. ;-)

I've since clearanced my rear wheel wells, and switched to a spring-over rear suspension and moved the axle back 7/8" and the rubbing is much less. If I disconnect the front anti-sway bar, I can still flex the front tires into the fenders - which, I think, is a good thing - the springs are pretty "flexy" anyhow.

Still.. if I were buying springs again? I'd call and get the Triangles.
