I have a friend with a '97 TJ and he's been telling me how he's lifting it as soon as he orders a lift kit. That's fine, but then he told me $1,400, which sounds way steep to me. I think it's a Skyjacker kit but I'm not sure. His basic goal is to fit 33's and get some decent flex, but $1,400 seems like a lot for that. Anyway, whatta you think? Thx.

I got my teraflex 4" for about $900 without shocks then I added the rancho rs9000 and the price went up to about $1100 or so and then when you go 4" up you should change the rear driveline so you don't get vibration. That I went with a RE slip yoke eliminator and the RE telescopeing driveline. In all it was about $1300 to $1400 for everything without labor, but it easy to do yourself.

No doubt, TJ's aren't cheap to lift, if you want a good one. You could spend $500 on a kit that only gives you coils, shocks, and few other odds n ends, but you'll run into problems. My RE kit was $1,600 <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">, but I think it's worth it...

I love my TJ, but I'm kinda nostalgic for my 95 YJ and the simplicity of the leaves...Too much junk goin' on with TJ's that can get tweaked/bent/need rebuilt...
I had a Lockright in the back of the YJ. Why didn't I just lock the front and be done with it? <IMG SRC="smilies/frown.gif" border="0"> ...Now I got the monthly payments and a "to buy" list about 3 feet long. I'm gonna have almost 30 G's in a friggin' Jeep by the time I'm done. I shoulda just bought a new truck to pull my YJ around with *smacking forehead*...Stupid, stupid, stupid....


Oh yeah...I want my square headlights back. I for one liked them. The TJ's look kinda <IMG SRC="smilies/rainbow.gif" border="0"> cute....Bummer. Oops for me, too late <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

this sounds like a more complete setup then the skyjacker lift. i would go with this first
