looking to replace my lift

Currently I have a 4" skyjacker with 2" spacers...rear looks shot and I don't want the spacers...so that being based on personal experience should I spent 500 and get a standard value lift or the 800 flex...I will be mudding and trail riding. Thanks!

4" springs with 2" spacers isn't a worthwhile combination. buy new springs of the height you want...so 4", 5" or 6"...whatever lift height you want. you'll need new shocks of appropriate length for that lift height, and bumpstop extensions of appropriate length to prevent said shocks from bottoming out.

Skyjunker, Rock Krawler, Rubicon Express, Teraflex, Fabtech, and a few others, all make 6" springs. so for example, with 6" of lift you'll then need ~15.5" collapsed length rear shocks with around 3.5" of rear bumpstop the front shocks will be in the 16" collapsed length range with ~2.5-3" of bumpstop.
