Sounds like a lot of money for what you get, especially when you consider SkyCrapper's reputation for making quality components. No control arms, no trackbars (just brackets), crappy shocks, and a TC drop which with 4" might not be enough and is certainly the bandaid way to do it. If you really want to do a 4" kit the right way, you'll want to replace the entire suspension, and will also want to add a SYE and CV Drive Shaft. If you are on a tight budget and trying to clear 33's (which 4" is usually recommended for) I would look into something like a 2" BB or 2.5" kit along with a 1" BL, vs. a kit like this . . . you'd save some coin, and probably have a better performing Jeep. Just my .02.

I think that is about $500 more than it should be.. try vendors on here. for that kind of coin you should have at least lower adj control arms and maybe even uppers...
