skyjacker lift?
Hey everyone, I need yalls opinion about getting a skyjacker lift. I have a 2011 wrangler 2 door and I found a 3.5 lift for 700 bucks from the jeep essentials catalog. Its called the skyjacker sport lift kit. Is anyone riding with this lift or know anything more about it? I appreciate the help

OH and if you have suggestions for tire size that would be much appreciated as well

Run away from SkyCrapper. If you are intent on a 3.5" lift do it properly. When you get above 3" you start running into the arena of correcting suspension geometry and $700 isn't going to cut it.

For 3.5" I personally would want at least:
Front adjustable trackbar
rear trackbar tower
extended brake lines
adjustable lower control arms

This is a minimum 3.5" lift I would run JK 3.5 Flex System

Priced differently, obviously for a reason. If you stick with 2.5" you don't have to add the "adjustables" and still clear 35" tires. JK 2.5 Max Travel System

Thank yall very much for the info. Im still trying to debate if I want to go 3.5 or 2.5 I know id be happier with the 3.5 but im not sure what I would need to make sure its still a smooth ride. If you have anymore imput on what I would need to complete the lift and maintain it that would be much appreciated
