i heard they are rough riding. i have no actual experience though.

i am in the process of installing an old man emu lift on mine (2.5") because i have used them before and their lift rode like a cadillac compared to stock on our 02 kj

My RE 4.5" springs and Bilstein 5100's with a lift shackle rode great on my 95. Not to mention i would never trust a mono leaf.

Same here, RE 4.5" w/ Bilstien 5100s. Only thing that could make me happier is more time in the mountains.

Isn't that monoleaf fiberglass?

Skyjackers is steel, IIRC it was teraflex that had the glass springs that didn't last too long due to breakages.

I got a new monolinear kit for literally nothing, so I ran that on my yj for 7 years. Flex is ok for a sua setup with 6" of arch. Not great flex. Drives great on the street. Never bent a spring, has sag, or broke a spring.

I wouldn't buy it again. If I were sua, I'd go re 4.5" or have custom alcan springs made. If you are paying retail, you can get custom alcan springs for about 200 a corner plus shipping. Then you will need u bolts, shackles, pinion shims, shocks, brake line extensions, etc.... That all comes in the skyjacker kit. I can put the rest of that crap together for way less than 1800 total. I think you are going to lose flex and ride quality by going to more arch. If you already have a 4" kit, don't buy all new hardware, I'd focus in higher quality custom springs and a really good shock.

Gotta Ask.....

Currently you have 31" tires on 4" of lift (which seems a little small on the tires)...
What lift have you got now, how do YOU like it (or now like it), and what tires do you want to run with the 6" lift??

35 inch tires would be nice and I have 31s with a procomp 4" lift and not happy with it

I have a 4 inch RC lift and. 1" body lift running 33s with no problem. On pavement it runs smooth as heck but off-road you feel every rock you roll over. Been thinking bout swapping shocks out but afraid the RC might start sagging.

It is costly. The only conversion kit I would buy is the genright. Better start thinking big if you are going that route.
