Price: $250.00
Pros: Cheap
Cons: Stock Springs
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This kit is good for the street if you want to perk your jeep up a bit and fit 31s. HOWEVER, off-road this kit isnt for you. If you have anything bigger than 29s the tires rub. This is because the stock springs are too soft and it flexes to easily. Even if you go offroading occasionally, Id recommend getting 2in lift springs and shocks. Its more expensive and firm but this is the heart and soul of the jeep after the motor. Spend the money and do it right.

Price: $276.00
Pros: Gives the Jeep enough lift to easily fit the 31x10.5/15R GY DuraTracs.
Cons: Installation instructions are competely worthless.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Its a good product for what it is, a budget boost. It provided enough clearance for the new GoodYear DuraTracs (31x10.5/15R) on my Ecco rims. I'm not in love with the red color glaring out from beneath the fender flares. If I had to do it again, I might go with the TeraFlex BB just because they're black. The installation instructions are not just worthless, they are marginally informative in some regards, and completely wrong in others. I don't see how anyone could get the coil springs out without disconnecting the sway bar (with the instructions stress in bold print to not disconnect), much less get them back in with 1.75" less space! A much better set of instructions can be found at: http://www.jeepfan.com/projects/installing-a-skyjacker-2-lift-on-a-tj/

Pros: good for starter kit. ready to upgrade
Cons: shocks are not the best, but for the price there not bad
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Good for someone on a budget. still running it with my 33"s but ready for upgrade. Not to bad of a kit though. It did come with the bracket for the 4x4 lever and is a must. had viberation in drive shaft and had to buy transfercase drop, which took care of it.

Price: $250.00
Pros: Easy to install and no problems what so ever.
Cons: Bad instructions but if you know what ur doing its easy.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Its cheap and a great starter lift to get bigger tires. Get a spring compressor because it helps a lot. Im running 32x12.5 pro comp mud tires and its still great. Installed in 2007

Price: $310.00
Pros: Great lift for the money.
Cons: If any cons, the spacers are bright red and you see them in the wheel wells, but that is it. no product issues.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This lift works for me. The Jeep is my DD and I may throw in a little off road here and there, so it helped improve the stance and let me slide 31s on with no issues.

I would recommend to anyone.

Price: $265.00
Pros: Easy install, Good shocks, great ride quality
Cons: Urethane spacers aren't really 2.00 inches, Actual height is 1.75in. Urethane bushings are really hard to insert in the shocks.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I got this lift just so I could fit some cheapo tires I got from a friend. The kit installs easily in a few hours with hand tools and does its job. I can fit 33's without any rubbing on road, minimal off.

The shocks that came with it were Hydro 7000's and they seem to ride a lot better than the stock shocks, control and roadfeel is much smoother. I'd probably compare the ride quality to a Lincoln Towncar, floaty but not too bouncy. I'd recommend them to anyone who has worn out shocks or a stiff ride.

Price: $1.00
Pros: nice easy set up. easy install
Cons: not big enough.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I have installed these before for other people, but mine was on the jeep when i bought it.

Its a nice setup for weekend off roading with some 32's but a bit too small for me. I want a good 4'' short arm lift kit for my jeep.

Pros: looks
Cons: ?
Recommended? No

Comments: PO had a small skyjacker lift on the jeep when I got it, nothing too big as all the factory brake lines and things are still there. I am not sure that it was actually 2" or not but it is probably the smallest thing you can get with the skyjacker name on it.

Pros: cheap lift
Cons: not as easily installed as one would imagine.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This was a great cheap lift. The only difficulty was in trying to add the spacers without a coil compressor. Had to drop the whole axle to get the last one on.

Pros: Mechanic took 3 hours to install.
Cons: I didn't have my jeep for 3 hours.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Came with coil spacers and Hydro shocks from skyjacker. The Shocks make the ride stiffer than stock, but not unbearable. So far i love the size of the lift i got. Not too much. But enough for when i have the bank to put 33's on.

Price: $200.00
Pros: Nice quick lift.
Cons: As usual installation difficulties.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Good product installation was fairly easy. Do it one corner at a time and have some help. The bump stops are a huge pain to get back in. Put some bearing grease on em and they popped right back in.

Warning you will need to buy a track-bar relocation bracket or and adjustable track-bar, trust me after you price it you will buy the bracket. My jeep was dog tracking about an inch and a half.

Also I had some drive-line vibrations after the lift. From what I've heard not everyone experiences this.

I purchased to originally with the nitro shocks, wow those things are strong. So stiff I had trouble putting them on, and it took to people to get the front ones pulled out of the towers. Traded them for some hydros rides slightly stiffer than stock but feels good to me.
