in the market for a new lift

Right now i have 2in spacer(what was on it when i bought it) with no complants but now want to go bigger. The lift that has caught my eye is the Skyjacker 4in suspension "econo" lift in Quadratec, its $529. I have a friend with a skyjacker lift and he has no complants. Could anyone post pics if they have this lift. But anyway what do you guys think, any suggestions??? I was also thinking of the RC 4in suspension lift, i have had persoanl experience with this lift on and off road, and it was cool with me, but IDK

I learned the hard way. Stay away from ANY econo lift. At 4 inches you NEED adjustible control arms all the way around. Econo lifts don't come with them. You will need them to adjust the rear driveline angle and front steering geometry. Otherwise you will get vibration in the rear and bad steering charateristics in the front. Save your money and get a complete kit that includes control arms and trackbars. They are much cheeper in the long run than buying those parts later to fix the issues you'll have.

you can get the rc x series 4" short arm lift.
it comes with fixed lower control arms, but are
longer overall for the lift. since you have a tj
you may have to install the tc drop bracket
that comes with the lift.
