Lift Complete(PICS)

Installed my Christmas present this past weekend. Work included removing old Pro Comp 2" lift and additional 1" coil spacers due to sagging(age) issues. Lift is the 4" Skyjacker Economy. I left the front 1" coil spacers on due to front end weight issues(winch, lights). Went with a lift that was cheap yet suitable for my type of driving. With the assistance of friends and family, got it installed in a short 12 hours.

I like how that looks.... What was added to that kit (becides 1 inch spacers) to get it to ride/work with the 32's? I think that is what I am going for... also what did that skyjacker kit run you?

i didnt add anything to make the 32's work. they worked with original 2"(3") lift. The purchase of the 4in lift was just to replace the old worn out 2" lift. i put the 1in up front to make up for the additional weight added to the front. Lift price was $502 shipped from 4wd.com and adj. track bar $200 from 4wheelparts.com.

I would say they ride a little on the stiff side. But the coils are are new so, i will go with that being the root cause. the last time i had hydros with my bb it rode great.

ive been meaning to get back on here in response to these people purchasing this lift. A lot of people have been complaining about the quality of this lift. (materials quality and ride quality). I have now had the lift of for 3 months and did my own driveway alighnment, and i would say that the jeep is driving great! i do not know what is wrong with these other peoples lifts and the issues they are having. I did purchase the front adj track bar and did not put on the skyjacker pitman arm and i doubt that is making all the difference. My initial reactions to the ride quality were poor but for some reason, it seemed like there was a "break-in" period.. it seemed all the quirks that the jeep seemed to have when i first drove it, worked its way out. dont ask?? i was afraid to let my wife drive the jeep intially, but everything is great now. I absolutely love the ride, for the price, it can't be beat! if anyone has questions/problems with their skyjacker lift, just ask me.
