    I am going to put a 4" Suspension lift on my 71. Should I go with Warn, Skyjacker, or Pro Comp. Does anybody have any experience with Warn suspensions?

    Thanks!

    All of the ones you mentioned are fine. Warn makes great winches, and the lift they make for the TJ is state of the art, as far as Heeps go (which is to the end of the block, if you're lucky![​IMG]).

    Of the three, the Skyjacker are the softest springs. You will roll more through corners on the street, but you won't beat yourself to death off road. It is up to you, as far as what kind of ride you like. I prefer stiff myself, but it does take a little getting used to when wheeling. Pro Comp will probably be stiffest.

    Check the spring rate list under the tech section, it has great info.

    I put on a procomp 2.5 lift and I like it. Its stiff, but I had an old worn out stock set of leaves so I think rebar would have felt stiff.

    I would hesitate to buy Warn, not because it is a bad product but because they are getting out of the suspension market and discontinuing with Black Diamond. I would think they would still honor their warranty but who could be sure of replacement parts and availability?
    .....later
