Jk Anyone want a deal on a Skyjacker 5" long arm lift for a 07-10 2-door JK?

I ran into a guy who had one for sale and it seems like a steal of a deal. I thought I'd pass this along to the group to save someone some cash.

Moderators, if this post violates policy, let me know and I will remove it immediately.

History:

This guy is an mechanic and one of his customers had a Skyjacker 5" long arm kit installed on an 07 2-door JK. The jeep took a hit in the front and the insurance paid out for a new kit.

When they went to install the kit, they compared the kit with the existing one installed. The only thing damaged was the front shock.

Since they already had the front torn down, they replaced the entire front part with the new lift kit. The rear lift kit is new and still in it's plastic wraps.

To make sure all is balanced, they also replaced the rear shocks.

In the picture, there is a single white shock. Not sure if it goes with it. Looks like a front shock. Probably the old one. There is a picture of the old rear shocks, too. He said that he'll throw in the old shocks, as they can probably warranty them out.

I didn't spend a lot of time there, just long enough to get some basic info and snap some pics. I visited Skyjacker's web site and tried to figure out which model lift it it was. From the best I can tell, it's probably the #JK401KCR-H, which retails for $1200.

He's asking $700 obo for the kit. If this is of interest to anyone, please contact him. This is the sum of the info I have. Any other questions, you'll have to contact him directly.

Also, PM me if you buy it so I can delete this posting. Thanks!

His business card is below.
