I have been looking online for a lift kit i noticed ther rock krawler kit 3.5in and yes i read about some of the problems and i also noticed that the ppl were making them more stable since they are bending. I was planning on getting them and modifying them to make them stronger now would i be able to ad like a sky jacker kit on that or would i only be able to add the rock krawler kit. I want it to sit pretty high. Thank you any help would be appreciated thanks again. I cant be sitting stock for the camping trip now will be no fun.lol

If you want it to sit "pretty high", here's a plan... start with a small lift (2"... there's a multitude of them out there). Throw some larger tires on, and ride with it like that for a while. Save up, and get the Superlift (or BDS or Rusty's) 4" lift, and put the 2" spacers on top of that, netting you 6" total lift. But... you have to start somewhere. Don't lowball the process only to end up mad that your stuff sucks, ya know?

Don't even bother with the Rock Krawler. Get a 2-2.5" spacer kit, and some tires, and roll with it.

What exactly do spacers do? Sorry im a little ignorant when it comes to this stuff. I have a feeling it makes the wheels pertrude out more, just curious.

I bought the skyjacker 2" lift and somone mentioned that i can purchase another lift on top of that. I Was just curious what lift i could use with this lift and a price on the lift. Thank you

yes. wheel spacers give you a different offset for your rims (they will sit out further). The lift kit comes with spacers for your springs.

Most likely. Just follow the instructions, and you'll be fine.

And it really won't look TOO goofy with just the lift.

Here's mine with just the lift...
