What's the BEST 4" suspension lift

I've got an 95 yj with an I-6, and I am looking for a 4" lift? I want 33x12.50 tires. I'm looking hard at Procomp and BDS lifts. Somebody give me some advise to which ones the best or tell me about your experiences. Any other 4" inch lift advise welcome.

I also am running SkyJacker lift of 4" .. very stiff with stock axles, but I can fit 33 by 12.50 MT's on it.

My plan includes (and hopefully before summer starts) full-width axles in SOA with 36" to 38" tire. I think this setup should help soften my ride considerably.

Big Kev - suggest you take a hard look at Rubicon Express's extreme duty lift kit. It is a totally complete kit and I am sure you wont be disappointed. I have seen many brands of lift kits - and most will sag an inch or so after a year. I have had this lift for a over a year and a half with no noticeable sagging. It is a 4.5 inch lift and looks good with 33's which is what I run as well.

Good luck,
Derek

Hey Renagade1213,

I am hoping to complete the change over with no body lift as well .. but to make the long story as short as possible ...
  • 4" heavy duty SkyJacker lift
  • 3" - 5" (approx.)SOA Chevy axles, slightly modified
  • Bushwacker cutout fender flares
  • Tiny body lift to fit the new engine if required

By my estimates, if I can currently run 33" tires with 4" of lift comfortably, (quick math equation 33" tires - original 29" tires = 4" difference) and gaining 3 to 5 inches in height plus the fender flares (capable of opening the wheelwells to allow for 33" on factory springs) would get me really close to the 38" tire size.

I already helped a friend do this exact modification on his '87 YJ, and with sagged out 2.5" lift springs, 3" body and the SOA Chevy axles he has more than enough room for 38.5" tires (currently running 35" Baja Claws which look tiny with all that spare space!).

I just installed the Pro Comp 4" lift on my 95YJ a couple of months ago. I am running 33x12.50 tires and have decent clearance. I have read a lot of bad things about Pro Comp, but I love mine. It rides better than stock on my Jeep. It's also warrantied for as long as it is installed on the vehicle so if they sag they can be replaced.
