look into clayton rockcrawler RE if your going to spend the money spend it. I have heard great things about clayton rockcrawler and re but never skyjacker. I will pm stevens because he has a 6in long arm skyjacker, see how he likes his.

I was also looking into a four inch long are system from fabtec and was wondering if there is a whole lot of a difference between a 4 inch long arm and six long arm in articulation.

well yea the 4in will flex less then the 6in but personally I would go 3in long arm and put highline fenders in it. Then you keep the CG low and still can flex a ton. a 1.25 body lift and a tummy tuck to go along with the lift. You know your going to need a SYE too.

I think tereflex makes a max LCG (Low Center of Gravity) kit i was kinda going that way more than the skyjacker but the thought of wielding makes me cringe plus its about five grand but that kit looks amazing

the problem still sits with your moving your center of gravity high up. IF you only go 3in long arm (yes I know doesn't look big) but with a small body lift and highline fenders you can fit the same size tires as that of a 5" or 6" lift without the feeling of being up in the air. It will still flew a ton but not want to topple over.

probly going to go with the max lcg cause it seems to be the most complete i can find and i want this lift to last the life of the car and three in just doesnt give me enough i have got stuck once befor and it wasnt fun and i need more ground clearance.

I have a 3.5 Rubicon Express lift being shipped as we speak. I might end up running 35's with tubed fenders next year. No body lift. I think Rawkon runs the same setup.
