Lift kits

I am trying to decide on which kit to buy. I want a 4" lift. Many to choose from. I realize it comes down to personal preference, but I have not done this before so I am in limbo. Superlift, tough country, skyjacker? Anything to look out for? Oh I am lifting a 1985 CJ7 pretty much stock.

Thanks

Personal preference, and based on experience, go with the complete Skyjacker kit out of Quadratec, it will include all of your suspension components necessary, I think it even has the dropped pitman arm, which is usually suggested with a 4" lift.

You will also need longer brake hoses, I'd get the stainless braided ones, they perform better, last longer, and are designed for 4" lifts; also available thru quadratec.

I recently lifted my 86 CJ7 4 inches. I went with the Pro Comp, with 33 inch Super Swampers. It came with everything you need, but the extended brake lines and bump stops. There are some smoother riding kits out there, but for the money it's a good deal. If you go through 4 wheel parts, you can also get free shipping. You can also keep a look out, you can find others running free shipping specials.

4 Wheel Parts?

Check the past threads on here about their business "practices" before considering them.
