POLL: Best ~4\" SUA lift for the money

Another Scrambler and I have been talking about our respective lift quandries: simply put, we are uncertain of how far to go and what is the best bang for our buck(s).

We want to go to 33" tires and keep the lift to a minimum. Both using our -8's as daily drivers (wanting decent rides), and on budgets (aren't all Jeepers? [img]images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]).

I did a search on "best lifts" and got a lot of info, but no clear concensus. It appears the lifts most highly regarded are Old Man Emu, Rubicon Express, SkyJacker, and Warn Black Diamond. Search also revealed going 2 1/2" usually results in 'buyer's remorse' - the remorse being that they shoulda went 4" vice 2 1/2". (Also noted that many eventually go SOA, and SOA is the best bang for the buck, but is also more 'involved'.)

It's obvious this has been discussed a good deal, and I do not mean to beat the proverbial 'dead horse'. However, we thought a poll might help, so here goes...

BTW: If you vote "Other", pls indicate in a post what 'other' brand you recommend.

Re: POLL: Best ~4\" SUA lift for the money

though I have had nothing but perfect results from anything I have ever used from RE, I have not used their CJ kit. I did have a skyjacker CJ kit though, and I liked it a LOT better than any of the kits that I have seen. I would think either kit is a good choice
