You are getting 35's, 8.8, and regearing. But you want Skyjacker???

Check out Zone, they are a great quality lift, better control arms, spring, and shocks than RC and SJ imo. Since you might be lazy- http://zoneoffroad.com/prod-display?ca=1&ma=6&mo=56

Also if you are looking at a "budget" lift a 4" might not be it. It will most likely require SYE +drive shaft which is not cheap.

I would go with the 4.25 combo lift Zone has, you wont have any issues and it fits 35" tires with room to flex.

Nice Jeep. It would look and drive/wheel better if you took 2" off the lift.

So? Who says your friends know what they're talking about?

4" Lift, 1.25" BL


It takes A LOT to make it work correctly, and isn't cheap. Looking back, I probably would have gone 3" with the BL instead, but I was young and naive when I had the 4" installed. Of course, it's taking a lot more work to get it to all work on mine since I'm running a completely flat belly and an 8.8 rearend. Even after all this, I plan to drop down to Metalcloak 3.5" coils. 4" + 1.25" is just too much.

I agree.That much lift and trimmed flares with 33's looks like way too much space.

Have you been in a Jeep with Currie springs?
Ever hear of function over form? I'm not a fan of the huge opening above the tires, but his flares are trimmed and I bet he can stuff a tire in there pretty good.

Of course. But I'm not the only one on here who thinks this. And I'm not trying to force anything, I'm just simply saying that just because his friends don't run a product, doesn't mean that he shouldn't consider it.
