Need help on LIFT KIT 4inch....... Suggestions

What do you guys think about the Skyjacker 4-5" Economy Lift Kit with Hydro Shocks? Is it a good kit for a JKU? Is it reliable, and is it worth putting on a 2011 Jeep? my tires and wheels are undecided. SUGGESTIONS

4" is very high for a JK. Many things must be addressed when you lift one that high. You can fit 35's with 2.5" lift.

My suggestion would be to decide on the wheels first. You are putting the cart before the horse. Then I would go with a lower lift, 3 -4" max. I would also go with a higher uality lift that had gas shocks, unless you like a lot of body roll and bouncing up and down.

so basically i should just move down to a lower lift, and shoot for quality. And for the tires and wheels, its kinda hard for me to choose? There is just so many brands. What should i consider for tires?

Start with what size you want and for what purpose. That will narrow your choices. When you get to a 4 - 5" lift other issues tend to crop up that you may not be prepared for. Fatal Angle Tom Woods JK Wrangler Driveshafts - Jp Magazine

ok I see, i think i am going to move down then, because 4 inch lift kits are very expensive, might as well do a 3 or maybe even 2.5 inch
