Re: 4in., 6in., or 8in lift?????????
Ok why the skycraper rr kits blow
-As already state the coils sag
-You have to drop your t-case for the long arms, flat skid arn't an option, if you have have a flat skid that gets you back to about stock lift hight
-The upper control arms are still stock length which really limit your flex
-Their workmanship sucks, one of the 2 guys locally that has the kit had a chunk of one of the sub frame assemblies fall off driving down the road, the other guy pretty much had a complete lift minsus coils in broken parts becasue everything broke or wore out
-To use their track bar you have to use their sway bar discos
-The kits are over priced for what they are, compare the price of a 5.5" re long arm vs a 6" rock ready and they are about the same price but the re kit gets you a flat skid plate, better parts and old man emu shocks
My vote would be for a 5.5" rubicon express kit which are usually taller than the sky crappers and you can always add spacers if you need more lift but the 5.5 should work fine for 36's and maybe need 2" spacers for 37's or 38's, remeber too much lift is a bad thing. The guy that had an entire lift kit worth of broken parts had 9" rock ready coils, 2" spacers, and a 1" body lift and was only running 36's. That was way too much lift and the jeep just looked retarted and felt like it was going to turtle over on the bunny trails, instead of admiting we were right and taking a couple inches of lift off he traded it in on a rubi.
