Skyjacker 6" Lift for '89 GW- Need Images

Post by MReno » Mon Apr 29, 2019 9:47 am

Hello,

I am considering a Skyjacker lift for my GW. I am running 31x10.5 tires on stock rims. I am wondering if any fedter well trimming is needed if I installed a 6" SkyJacker lift kit? Also wondering what it would look like, so if you have any images, please reply with them. Thanks.

Well, first off, I don't think skyjacker makes a 6" lift for the GW. The only one listed is a 3.5-4" lift.

What size tires are you looking to run after the lift? And what kind/level of wheeling do you plan to do? That will dictate your fender trimming needs.

31x10.5 on the stock rims works great with a 4" lift, and will look and work right, with no fender trimming.

Decided on going minimal with a 3"RC lift with blocks in back. Running 31×10.5x15 tires.

You won't be happy with the ride quality of the RC lift, but it is cheap.

Its not a daily driver, just a play vehicle, so it will do.
