4" Lift - Which one??

About to put a 4" suspension lift on my 98 TJ. I'm looking at the Skyjacker Economy lift or the zoneoffroad.com 4" lift. What do u recommend. This is strictly for looks. No offroading what so ever. Gonna be riding on 15x8 MT Classic II's with 33" Baja Claws. Thanks for help!!

Id go with 4inch longarm from rough country it looks badass and it performs well off and on road and the install is not that hard, installed mine in about 16 hours myself at home in my garage.Wont be sorry!

I'd personally go with the skyjacker economy lift out of those two...

I dont have personal experience with the other kit you're talking about but i've ridden in a few with different skyjacker setups and the rides have been nice for a lifted vehicle. Also seems to be a popular choice among different threads i've read

Most popular i've seen are the Rough Country lifts (as above) or Rubicon Express lifts.

here is a link with two reviews of the 4" economy lift (post number 31 and 34)

Skyjacker springs are really stiff, if your not doing any offroading save the money and go with the ZONE kit, they stand behind they're product.

If your jeep is strictly on road only....why such a tall lift and agressive tires? I know you may like the look it just seems a bit much for something thats never gonna be used.

I have the rubicon express 7.5 long arm and love it. I know that may be much for what your looking for but it is awesome and no problems so far. You might want to check out the Rock crawler lifts I hear they have a lifetime warranty. Which could come in handy.

All this for something you will never take off road.

May as well as add a stinger and a snorkel to it if you're going to go FULL POSER.
