4 Wheel Customs TJ/LJ 2.25 Inch Complete Budget Boost Kit w/(4)Skyjacker Hydro Shocks

This budget boost is ideal for anyone wanting to add an aggressive look to their TJ without spending the money on a coil spring lift. The kit can be used with stock shocks or for better offroad performance, choose one of the kits that includes shocks. It is possible to use the stock shocks but they will not allow as much suspension travel.

This kit includes four 2.25" coil spring spacers and a pair of rear bump stop extensions. We now have kits available with shocks as well.

Reasonable price and has the option of being sold with or without shocks. My kit included Skyjacker Hydro Shocks.

4 Wheel Customs TJ/LJ 2.25 Inch Complete Budget Boost Kit w/(4)Skyjacker Hydro Shocks

not a bad bb but i would deff never buy another one again. if i had the money when i was doing the lift i would have bought a full traction 4" or re 4". the skyjacker shocks suck and rust badly. i have rancho rs 5000s now. however good lift to fit larger tires under and also much better flex for cheap. good product though.

So far so good. A little more complicated than just installing taller springs, but great for the price.

Shocks appear to be very similar to the OEMs.

Got the Rubicon Express shocks and those bushings have gone bad on me twice, but overall I liked the lift kit. Feel like I got what I paid for.

If at all possible upgrade the shocks you won't regret it. the Skyjackers worked great for about a year and then they started to wear and tear a bit and they are not near as good as they once were

Overall a good average starter kit, I still would recomend it.

Can't wait to get started, but my wallet can......

Cool way to gain 2 1/4 inches and not break the bank. I would reccommend to anyone who wants to run 32 or 33 inch tires. I have 32's and it is excellent!

Bought with the rubicon express shocks but never used them, just the spacers. Stayed with the factory shocks and never had a problem, didnt get much flex due to the factory shocks. this kit was just a temp fix till i got my other lift kit and shocks, fit 31x10.50x15 on stock rims with no problems.

Oh, you hate your job? Why didn't you say so? There's a support group for that. It's called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar.

The United States is a nation of laws: badly written and randomly enforced.

If you ever become a mother, can I have one of the puppies?

Is the FULL 2.25", unlike comparable 2" products which happen to be 1/4" shorter than what they are proclaiming to be. The instructions could be better in describing necessary tools and methods.
