Which Lift RC 4" or Skyjacker 4"
 
Im looking around for a 4" lift and was wondering what would be best for me. I use my jeep as a DD and do some mild wheeling. I want to stay under about $700 for the lift. I bought a set of 33x12.50 dunlops for real cheap and I read 4" is a good size lift for that size tire. I found a site that had these two lifts for a great price 4" 97-02 Jeep Wrangler TJ 4x4 Rough Country Suspension Lift Kit - Top Gun Customz and 4" 97-02 Jeep TJ Wrangler Skyjacker Suspension Lift Kit !NEW! - Top Gun Customz are these two lifts any good and will i have to buy anything in addition to what comes with these two lifts?

Stick with a 2.5-3" lift and 1" BL for 33's.A lot less problems and money.I ran the RC 3.25"/1" BL/MML with 35's.

ok cool, thanks for the info. any suggestions on a good 2.5 - 3" lift?

i have the progressive 3.25 lift from Rough country with 2.2 shocks, quick discos, and steering stabilizer for $473 shipped. love the look and ride so far with no issues.

If I was to do it all over for 700 bucks I would get the RC 3.25, 1.25 BL, 1"MML, adjustable front track bar. You could fit 35s with some 1 to 2 inch Bump stops if you wanted and your all set for a gas tank lift and flat skid.

If I could do it again, I'd start with components that I know I'll want down the road instead of rebuilding everything twice.

If you are wanting 33's now and maybe 35's down the road, start with the components that you can afford for now. I'd go with AEV 3" progressive springs if you are wanting 33's with either Bilstein shocks or OME shocks and rear track bar bracket. Sould run you around $700-800 depending on shocks You can run this with stock contol arms and track bars for the time being and you can add adjustable control arms and track bars, SYE and driveshaft, as you go. If you want to add 35's in the future, add a 1" BL along with steering upgrades, gears, etc.

You don't necessarly have to build with the components I'm suggesting. I'm just simply trying to say build with quality components that you wont want/need to replace later. I sure wish I had by passed the rough country stuff and used my money on better quality stuff.

Stay away from anything in general with the name Skyjacker on it when it comes to TJs.

JohnW720 07-05-2010 08:24 AM

Cool, thanks. Think im going with the RC 3.25" with a 1.25" BL.

Give RC a call and ask for Jeffrey to get your pricing. He is a real good guy that apparently enjoys wheeling Jeeps and will have a discount over the online price. He will likely jump into this thread soon but you can also find his online name at many of the RC threads.

Zone Off-Road makes a 4.25" combo kit that comes with a 3" suspension lift, 1.25" BL, and a 1" MML.

I prefer this option over the RC kit.

Zone makes pretty nice stuff and I have not heard any complaints on them yet. I helped a friend put the 4.25" combo kit on his TJ and he really likes it. It rides pretty nice.

i would disagree with that. i (and plenty of others) have skyjacker projects that do just fine.

skyjacker makes an affordable and competitive product worth anyones consideration depending on what they are looking for.

My 4" skyjacker suspension is really good... no prob with it and I run 35" KM2. Skyjacker is good IMO. Like in every companies, something you have a problem with the product put every company as their prob.
