Talking SOLD - XJ 6" Skyjacker lift - full packs

I'm bumping up to an 8" lift, so parts of my 6" lift are available.
  • Front 6" coils.
  • Rear 6" full packs with bushings.
  • 6" lift shocks, whatever brand came with the lift.
  • Front swaybar discos + extended rear swaybar links (non-disco). Rears are new - I removed the rear swaybar when the 6" lift was installed.


Coils are not so expensive, but the rear full leaf packs were not cheap (as were the new 8" packs). They were on my DD for about a year and a half. I've driven this XJ all over the place and even towed multiple axles on my utility trailer with it many times. They did not sag and I was always very happy with the ride (which is why I bought Skyjacker again). After I swapped out the rear springs, I realized that I apparently never took pictures of the XJ as it was. Below are the only shots I could dig up that showed the Jeep. Its pictured on the 6" lift with 285/75's w/ Moabs. Its tough to put things in perspective in these images, but you can at least see the distance from the tires to the flares. I wheeled it on 31's with this lift and it had a lot of flex. Never tried it with the 285's for fear of bashing up the flares (I don't like trimming), but it appears that the right backspacing may let the tire stuff decently without bashing into anything.

$450.

Rear packs are already out. Front coils coming out this week.

I think I have a picture of it on 31's uploaded if I can get into my GL gallery. Otherwise I'll have to dig it up at home.



SOLD.

Yea, do you have an SYE and did you extend the brake lines?

I did everything because that's the way it should be done. It all went in at the same time, so I can't answer any "how was it after you did..." questions.

No f'ing TC drop. Its stupid to lift your vehicle and then drop your drivetrain. I have a TW 242 SYE and double cardan TW shafts f/r.

The only items included are the items I listed.

some people may not know what everything is, just a general question, since all lift kits are different.

mtx you need to adjust the brake lines after any sort of lift.

that is all that he is selling. to complete the lift you will need (control arms*upper and lower*, extended brake lines, adj track bar, drop pitman arm, shackles, and an sye kit.

And double-cardan f/r driveshafts. I know you wouldn't know by looking at it, but there's a lot of shit in my XJ.

The right parts work well. Stock parts don't.

I don't want to sell it to someone who is going to have problems with it because they don't want to do what needs to be done or were unprepared. The last thing I need to hear is "Spro sold me some 6" springs that ride like shit with my shortarms and it makes my driveshaft keep coming apart."

When you exceed 4" in an XJ, you pretty much have to plan on doing everything. FrankNBrew had a 4-4.5 with spacers on top of it and he pretty much had all the same things done as well, except he had RE drop brackets instead of the full crossmember I have that does the same thing.

The blunt reality of it is that if you have to ask what else is needed, its just not a good deal for you. These springs will work for people who have already done some things to their rigs, already have a 4" kit, or are going to do it all at once like I did.
