4" Skyjacker. I had problems with my rear U-bolts, but thats cause my mechani was an idiot. Other than that went great, I highly recommend the added bushings that go in the fram for shackles. Im VERY happy witht he skyjacker, great performance, great ride.

I had the Skyjacker 4" , worked great, smooth ride < alot smoother than it was on factory> even with 36 Swampers on

i rode in I-4's Jeep awhile back he has the 3.5 BDS it rode great, worked great offroad & for what i paid for my skyjacker i wished i had went with the BDS, simply because of the warranty . I-4's is sitting on 35 Mtr's

I love my 4" skyjacker lift. You will hear "skyjacker springs sag blah blah blah" but after six months mine have not sagged other than the settling that occurs with all lifts. I check it from time to time but cannot detect any sag at all. Plus the ride is great...much much better than my stock springs (now they sagged bad...I was almost riding on the bumpstops hehe).

I have been running Superlift 3.5 inch springs for about 5 years now. No sag, tons of flex. I would buy it again. Rides better than with the stock springs. Looks good with 31's.

I dont have either kit but I sure have had really good luck with my Rough Country System.... I have a lot of guys tell me that my setup is very good. Most of them have had skyjacker systems

I love my BDS kit, switched after Skyjunkers sagged on me and they would not cover. Hope mine was an isolated case.

I am looking into getting a 4" Suspension lift real soon on my 92 YJ and just wanted to know what springs to stay away from due to sagging or premature rusting etc?
My brother just got a set of superlift 4" springs, are those good?

33" tires and 3.5" lift???

Can you run these 2 together with enough clearance or does the extra 1/2 " for Skyjacker help that much?
