I sure more people will chime in. Skyjacker lifts aren't the greatest. For the same price look at zone, rough country. Do some research. No you do not need to extend thoughs. Personally I like Zone 4" good quality good price

No you wont need to extend any lines but i'm with sdp, i'm not a fan of skyjacker...

you can get a better quality kit by zone for the same (or cheaper) price...i personally have the 4.25 kit so i dont need to do a tcase drop and dont need a SYE

I usually lift my trucks with Fabtech (6-8") but this time I used Rubicon Express (4 1/2") on my Jeep...

Are you looking to JUST fit larger tires or are you looking for more than that?

Its just the basic Skyjacker 4" lift for 97 thru 06 TJ's. It did come with a transfer case lowering kit. Lowers it by about 1 1/2 to 2". Paid about $1300. installed. 33" tires fit nicely.
