Re: Suspension lift
It seems that skyjacker isn't that well liked and thier kits are outragously priced. I would say go with a 4" kit isntead of a 2-3" kit, if you get a 2" kit you may be wanting to go to a 4" kit and have to get almost everyhing new again (that would suck). Another option would be a 1-2" (if you have ac you can only go 1") body lift and then a 2" spacer lift, this is a fairly cheep option and will clear 32's really well and will fit 33's alright. Then later on if you want to go bigger you can always put a 4" lift on and throw the spacers in to make it a 6" lift. When you get a 4" kit and 33" or larger tires, many people on a budget like the 4" super lift kit, you have to consider things like do you have to get new gears to still have power, do you need an sye, will your front axle take the bigger tires, can you handle to drive w/ large tires every day, do you have to tools to install the lift? if not I'd get a 2" lift and then a nice tool set so you can start working on your jeep. If you only have a grand to spend on a lift, tires and wheels this is probably the way to go or if you have a grand + money for tires and wheels then I'd take that grand and go w/ the spacer/ body lift and then get other things like tow hooks, rocker skids, a limited slip, and some basic offroad gear like a hi-lift, tow strap, spare parts, a CB radio, maybe a full cage and other things that should probably come before a lift and tires. Feel free to ask the board any thing these guys know there stuff.
