Skyjacker 2" Budget Boost

I just installed a 2 inch spacer lift on my Jeep with Hydro 7000 shocks. It made my Jeep just a little bit taller, and I love how it looks. This lift has not affected the drive of my vehicle at all. The shocks are softer than stock as far as I'm concerned. It lookds great and I am really pleased.

i like this lift. i wasn't looking for something too aggressive and this allowed fitment of the size tire i wanted and the stance is good enough for me.

Its a great start for a newbie that wants a better ride then stock and has little more flex with a more aggressive look. I however, most of the bushings on my skyjacker shocks fell off. But they send me a free set of bushings which they upgraded. I guess they had some issues with the material of their older bushings.

I added a 2" econo lift for now for a little more clearance. The parts were not too hard to install. I plan when the time is available to do a complete 4.5" lift.

Just put it on. Easy enough to do except for fighting rusty bolts. Gives it just enough lift to make it look a little more aggressive than stock but still easily a daily driver.

A quick and easy kit. Takes about 2 hours to install. Good for people who want to lift but not pay much.

good for the money and has allowed me to take my jeep out 4wheelin with some decent clearance. Although, i ultimately plan on doing a full suspension lift in the future, being a full time student has but a big limit on my budget.

Perfect for a first lift kit. Also when you decide to go bigger you can just leave them on your new springs or use 2 for a leveling kit.

Instructions are horrible. Took us about 7 hours total, most of it spent on trying to figure out the front right. Once we got that one off the rest of it was way easier. Also the two rear shocks are blown (never not blown). I go over mild bumps on the road and it keeps bouncing for several seconds after the bump. Not impressed. Although i was impressed with the Quadratec customer service, they are sending me new rear shocks.
