What do people think about the Skyjacker 3" Lift Kit with Rear Leaf Springs & Hydro Shocks for 84-01 Jeep Cherokee XJ MSRP $ 829.00.... Does that kit have everything I really need for now. It seems to compare price wise with the Rubicon Express.

whatever you do, DO NOT get add-a-leafs for the rear, they sag and make your rig look retarded, my friend has this problem and it looks like total sh**.
i have a 3 inch Rusty's Offroad lift on my xj and Cepek 31's on it, the whole thing is a package through rustys, they send you everything. coils, leaf packs, shocks, AR rockcrawler wheels, and **** Cepek F-C II's (i think they also do mud country's too, but you have to ask when you order it). The entire setup is a great deal with shipping it only cost me 1390. Its a great way to start off. I'd deff recommend that its a great deal and all quality parts.
ive running a procomp 2.5inch aal in the back and full 3 inch springs up front with PC lca's and SB links. i have 31 inch bfg ats and they rub when wheelin with front SB discod. if i had to choose id say save your money for a while and go RE coils, full leafs, uca lca trackbar, quick discos, and everyone has soft 8's, they r good but be original. with 3 inches, 31's will rub unless you trim.
98 XJ on 32's and 2-3" lift, locked, armored, and ready to rock.
yes that's the package.... they will ask you what type of rear axle you have which is most likely a chrysler 8.25 but there are other threads around the tech forum that have pictures so you can tell if its an 8.25 or a D 35. they ask you this so they can be sure to send you the right sized U-bolts. the stabilizer upgrade is nice for the 30 extra dollars, i got it and aside from being a pain in the butt to pull the old one out its much nicer than the stock one. when it comes to coils, the heavy duty ones are intended for if your going to be running an aftermarket bumper with a winch, they will compinsate for the added weight. so it really doesnt matter which ones you choose, i chose the heavy duty ones because they wont settle as much and sit just alittle bit higher.
The tires come already mounted and balanced on wheels. although if you want to just buy the Rusty's 3" spring pack kit you may be able to find better deals on tire and wheel combinations. The lift alone is only about $500 and the wheels can be found for about $60 each and tires such as BFG mud terrain kms or the TrXus M/Ts are actually cheaper than the cepeks which run about 160 each.
