Skyjacker Lift question

I want to buy the skyjacker 2.5 coil lift for my 08' jk.

My question is, will the kit, although made for the 4 door fit on my 2 door? I've heard of people doing this and getting more lift.

thanks in advance

Theres no rest for the wicked....

Any coil set from a 4DR will net a little more lift on a 2DR. 4DR is heavier, and the spring rate is made to compensate for it. The amount is saomething of discussion.

Sure it'll fit. It may jar the fillings in your teeth loose though.

Roger that - they will fit, but you will be ridding on some pretty stiff bricks! Let us know how it feels.
