Looking at another TJ. Help me out here!

I'm going to look at another TJ tonight that's for sale. It's a 2004 Sahara, 86,000 miles, asking $12,700 for it. 4.0

He says it has a 4.5 inch Skyjacker lift kit on it. Running 33" BFG's.

Does Skyjacker even make a 4.5" lift kit? I didn't think they did. But he says he has documentation from the previous owner. I even figured maybe he means a .5" body lift, but I don't even think they make that either.

Am I wrong here?

Yes they do

Can you take it for a drive? Skyjacker is not high on the list as far as lifts. Was it offroaded? I'd try (of coarse) and get him down. See how long it has been installed. My cousin has a 4" SJ lift on for years w/35's. He only offroads here and there. besides being tremendously underpowered (stock gearing) it still drives
nice. I would consider, just look into it really good first

Might be an older kit they don't make anymore?

True, I saw some links, when I clicked on them, there was not just SJ, other kinds.
