HELP! Lift Kit

Does anybody have any feedback on the Skyjacker 2-1/2" - 3-1/2" Sport lift?

Looks like a great buy for the money, but offers few details on the website.

Is this lift adjustable or does one end get raised more than the other?

Any feedback is great. This is only my second lift, second jeep, and I'm not too experienced yet, but I'm 22 and just started making decent enough money to commit to my jeep obsession.

Thanks in advance

That kit looks incomplete compared the the ones offered by better manufacturers.

Check out AEV, TeraFlex or Rock Krawler and compare the included components in those kits.

Here is the AEV 2.5

Additionally, it's been suggested that 2.5" lift is the max "safe" lift... Any higher and you'll end up needing to spend more money on new drive shafts and other components to keep the jeep running safely and enjoyably.

Most also recommend that you install the geometry correction brackets any time you lift the jeep 2.5" or higher. http://www.aev-conversions.com/shop/...n-brackets-frt
