Skyjacker 2" Lift

Hey Guys,

First time posting on here. Bought my 2011 GC back in february and I love it. I wanted to know if anyone has installed Skyjacker's 2" Lift. From what I am seeing it appears to be a much better value than the RRO lift as you get Front and Rear shocks with the kit all for under $400. Here is a link to the kit:

Re: Skyjacker 2" Lift

I'm sure it's a fine kit but i'm 99.9% sure it doesn't come with shocks as the Cherokee uses struts and the'd be replacing them. Plus is says spacers above it. It doesn't make sense that they'd replace the strut just to stack a spacer on top of it.

If you want to replace the struts I believe this is your only option.

Re: Skyjacker 2" Lift

I have dobinsons 30 mm lift in rear and Crdstu 40 mm lift, with top out plates, in the front. Has made the car much better off road and , in my opinion improved the ride. With the 256/65 bf Goodrich tyres car is sitting level and about 30 mm higher overall.
We have been doing plenty of offroad and hi speed gravel and are super happy with the improvement.

Re: Skyjacker 2" Lift

For me, it feels much better then stock.
