Post Superlift Superide 4" Lift Kit, CJ5, CJ7

My local Jeep shop highly recommends this lift. It's all they use. What are some of you comments about this brand?

Superlift is a good brand. I'm running them on the front of my CJ5. I replaced SkyJackers softride 4" lift. It lost 2 inches in 6 months. I wouldn't have been too mad about this but, I'd called the company and they assured me that it would be fine for my V8 and winch combo. My friends 6cyl Cj7 rides great. I'll stick with SuperLift. They last much longer.

I'm also interested in more feedback on the SuperLift. I was considering Skyjacker but I've heard quite a few folks complain about the premature sag and for that much $$, that's a real shame.

ALSO, anyone try the new 4WDH brand 4" lift? Good price for a complete kit...

Superlift is great. I never had a Superlift in a CJ, but I had one in a chevy truck. I had Rough Country, and Skyjacker in my two previous Jeeps, and they didnt match the quality of Superlift (for me).

Boggy, I agree, well sometimes.. I've been doing alot of searching for the right(meaning the best within my cost constraints) 4" lift for my CJ7. My caution is due to adding a Rugged Trial lift to my Scrambler years ago and absolutely hateing it. Sure, I could take an immediate turn at 60 mph but if I hit an acorn in the road, your teeth would chatter.
Here's what I've found and anyone chime in if I'm wrong:

SkyJacker, around $490 without pitman arm or shocks. Pitman arm goes for another 80. I've heard about sagging issues but also heard the ride is good.

SuperLift, around $400 again without shocks and I'm not sure about the pitman are but they don't mention it. Heard mixed about the ride.

BDS, can't find a price but I've heard alot of positive feedback.

4WDH, $520 for everything, shocks, pitman arm and T lowering kit. Is it anygood? Well, I just noticed it in the recent edition of their catalog. Obviously someone else makes but I don't know who. They did confess that the shocks are Monroe.

Price wise, the SuperLift and the 4WD kit are very close. Which is better? I'd realy like know before I go dropping $500.

I've had a Trailmaster 4" lift on my CJ5 for about a year now with zero sag, the down side is the suspension (the ride) is very stiff (equal to a covered wagon)! I bought it at Collins Brothers Jeep, I noticed they have them priced at $442 w/o shocks. Hope this helps. I'm going with the Rubicon on my 7!!!

I've heard that the 4WD kit is made by BDS. This information was confirmed by a guy that works for 4WD and resides at this forum: <a href="http://jeepsunlimited.com/forums/" target="_blank">http://jeepsunlimited.com/forums/</a>

I heard that BDS will not warrant these kits, that 4WD will. I don't know for how long and I don't know if they are inferior to the kits you get with BDS stamped on them.

Cool

I have a 4" Superlift Softride. I'm not fond of it, and wouldn't do it again. The ride's NOT soft at all, and I've lost almost 2" in the front. I'm not sure if the problem is the winch or the V-8, though.
I'd look at BDS.
