Re: Opinion on CJ7 lift kits
I have a few comments:
The kit you found on Ebay seems perfectly nice with some good features, but I am not familiar with the brand. For similar money you can buy a name brand such as Skyjacker, which is a good middle of the road lift. I would say ok to the Ebay one if you know someone with the kit, or if you have some personal history with this company.
If the suspension rubs now over speed bumps, might I suggest more lift or smaller tires. If you don't plan to wheel too much, even mild wheeling would cause some pretty heavy rubbing.
A shackle reversal I would suggest as a later lower priority modification, especially if you don't plan to wheel it.
Last thing: Why do you need 35" tires if you don't plan to go offroad (not a criticism, just a question)?
