budget boost 4 wheel customs

Hey everyone! i just installed my 4 wheel customs 2.25 inch budget boost. I must say that the quality is great and installed was super easy. I decided on the Skyjacker nitro 8000's. I am very pleased with the shocks thus far. 4 wheel customs kits are a good buy for anyone looking for a budget boost.

a 2.25" BB with skyjackers should run about $250 on that site.

Jeep looks good, BTW.

It is hightly likely I will go with a BB again from them for my TJ and that along with the 1.25 BL that I will have as part of my rokmen build.. And for my needs I can say that 3.5in of lift is enough for what terrain I wheel

you have the option to choose between different shocks. Depending on the shocks the price will change, but not by much. i paid about 280.00

Thanks for the info! I was plannin' on getting the 2" skyjacker kit from Quadratec for $261, but $229 is a better deal for 2.25" and the same shocks. I'm planning on going with either 32x11.50x15s or 265/75R16 tires (depends on what the tax man brings) that 2.25" lift should go well, I think.

I was planning on running 2.25" w/ 32s. with about 4" backspacing it should sit really nice. Not planning on wheeling much. mainly my DD. its about the $$$ now.

Yes, should look nice! If I go with the 16" rims they have 4.5" of BS. if I stay with my 15x8 Gamblers then I'll just get 1.25" spacers which come out to 4.25" of BS.

IMO.. Any body lift more than 1.25 inches is no good

A body lift only takes 20 minutes to install? Really? it would probably take 20 minutes just to get my tools together. then find all the bolts to be removed, that would take alittle while. Bustin' the bolts loose (rusty bolts that have never seen a tool), jacking up the body, removing and replacing the pucks making sure they don't move on ya', then doin' the other side as well. then clean up, and put all the tools away. that's not counting drinking a beer (or 2) while all that's being done. besides that wouldn't (or shouldn't) you have to do a motor mount lift at the same time?

Check out this kit from Zone Offroad for $218.48 + shipping with Nitro shocks.

Good luck on your rig build and with the tax man.

Namaste,

Allen

The ride is a little firm but not hard. It seems way better than stock.
