lift kits for a 86 CJ-7

I'm looking for a lift kit for my 86 CJ7, I'm wondering about the pro's and con's of some of the kits out there. I'm looking in the 4" range, for a superlift or skyjacker. If anyone has any info or has used these I'l appreciate the help.

Re: lift kits for a 86 CJ-7

I run the 4in superlift. the ride is very good and i am very happy with the flex. My brother in law runs the 4 in on the front of his cj and it out flexs what ever used to be in the front of his. I barely rub the fender behind the parking light but i am a narrow track. good luck

I also run a 4" Superlift softride. It installed easy and tracks perfectly even without an alignment afterwards. It feels very stable to me, and the mechanic that just did my engine rebuild said it's still stable at high speeds.

Re: lift kits for a 86 CJ-7

I'm trying to decide if I want to go with a conventional lift or do a spring over. Which would be better on and off road, and which would have less problems over time. Of course as with everything money is a concern also.
