the ride is excellent man....way better than stock

i have a squek when the weather is just right...seems to be around 70-75 degrees, nothing some silicone lube can't solve though

YES, SKYJACKER IS A "TRUE" 6". THE SQUEAKING NOISE THAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT IS THE BUSHINGS. IF YOU SPRAY THEM WITH SILICONE WHILE DOING THE INSTALL THERE WILL BE NO NOISE. OH YA, I TO WOULD CHOOSE SKYJACKER OVER ANYTHING ELSE. LIKE JOHN SAID, THE RIDE IS BETTER THAN THE FACTORY RIDE. NICE AND SMOOTH. GREAT ARTICULATION. ALL AROUND TUFF KIT. :rck: :rck: :rck: :rck:

yea....skyjacker is the only lift that is a true 6 inches of lift...thats why u can clear 37s with this lift alone

other lift manufacturers say 6" (like fabtech, rough country, and pro comp) but they do not give a full 6 inches of lift like skyjacker does

its the bushings...silicone lube will fix this...i spray mine once every couple months...takes all of 2 minutes and keeps the squeak away

if u do go with skyjacker i'd recommend paying the extra cash and going with the rear soft-ride replacement springs instead of getting blocks

the rear springs are nice and soft, great ride, and so much safer than blocks...its worth the extra cash

ya just wondering about it being a TRUE 6" lift cause if your using 3" blocks, that would only be a 3" lift in the rear, correct? and 3" lift in the front, then crank tbars for another 1.5 - 2" lift giving you 5" lift in the front.

I cranked my tbars and put on a 3" bl and have no problem clearing 36x13.50 iroks, but i want more lift now lol, I was always a skyjacker fan, and would go with new springs aswell.

thanks for the replies, moparman2003 and John Colorado!!
