I was hoping someone might know of a sight that had a complete 4" Skykjacker installation walkthrough for a TJ. I saw a good one for a Procomp Installation( with photos) the other day and was wondering if there was one for Skyjacker. I have the instructions, and I there shouldn't be any problems, but I would like it to go as quickly as possible. I would like to avoid another 14 hour ordeal( my first suspension lift installation.) Any help would be appreciated.

don't know of a site, but i've put 4 on. If you have any Q's feel free to e-mail me (or call 214.327.6999) Is Little Elm any where around Dallas? TJ's are the easiest to lift and you've done one, so this should be cake! <IMG SRC="smilies/usa.gif" border="0">

It's North of Dallas. Just west of Frisco and Noth of the Colony.
Right by Lake Lewisville. Well, the other lift that I did was 2" suspension lift.... That makes the 14hrs even worse LOL. I just didn't know that all I had to do was put the jack on one side of the diff and lift it a little to get the spring in and out. Duh.... I am normally not that bad... but there was a lot of budwiser consumed in that 14hrs. I appreciate the offer. We may start working on it this week at night or Saturday. If we do, I might give you a call. Thanks.

I can't say there was specific selling point besides that I have a friend that bought a TJ with the same lift. We drove the Jeep about twelve hours to get home and the ride was great. I had no complaints as far as that was concerned. As far as off road, I have yet to see any faults that would make me reconsider ( it has held up very well) The parts seem to be very well manufactured and the kit very complete. I was originally going to go the less expensive rout and get the ProComp, but after a little bit of research, I found there to be quite a few complaints about them. So, I spent a few extra hundred bucks and bought, what I think will be a better lift. My 2 cents. Thanks for the offer Cutter. I am not sure if we will be doing the installation this weekend or not, but whenever we do I will be sure to give you call.

The skyjacker didn't seem to help out in this situation! I need your new tires! Hey Raven, isn't that your new TJ on the left??? <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">


I don't have any complaints about the skyjacker, and that was a long 12 hour drive! I do, however, like it better than the Pro-Crap. You'll be happy with it!

Man those pics for Marshall Creek turned out nice. I think you would have made it through had you got a little run at it and just stood on the go pedal. Maybe..... if you had TSL's....LOL. Yeah, I don't think that I will have any complaints about the lift. It should be able to do what I need it to. Admiral, are you up for helping clean up the garage tonight and starting on the Jeep? Like I said at lunch, I can drive the other one to work until we get it done. I am getting tired of waiting. I will be picking up the other parts today after work. We need to come up with a plan on getting the tires ballanced. We both know that I can't fit them in the back of the Jeep. Shoot me and IM and let me know. Cutter, I will probably give you a call for this Saturday to help with the suspension. I will ensure that there will be plenty of beer and steaks if we do. I will let you know.
