Lift kit

2 door 07. Can't decide if I want 4" or 2.5" rough country or 4" or 2.5" skyjacker. Any opinions or perforations? Along with the suspension lift, what needs to be done in order for it to be safe and effective?

I do not know much about Rough Country but my experience (through friends of mine) and my research both have shown Skyjacker aka "SkyCrapper" is definitely not a choice. Skyjacker's kits all have shotty bushings and while yes some have had success I have read more about issues with the kits than about good things.
I am personally getting ready to order a kit from Teraflex because everywhere I have read it seems to be the kit most are happy with.

GOOD LUCK, hope I did not hurt your decision with the Teraflex comment.

07X,

What size tire are you looking to run? If you only plan on running a 35" tire, go with the 2.5" lift. A 4" lift is only necessary when running 37" tires.

As for the brand, it depends on what you want to spend and how complete you want the kit to be. The Rough Country Kit is a good kit for the money, and will give you the clearance for larger tires, and better performance on and off road.

The Skyjacker Lift Kit is a little bit more expensive but it comes with more components. The only thing that it doesn't include is shocks. You'll have to get those separate.

Hope this helps! If you have any other questions, I'll be happy to help.
