Lift Kit Question

How much of a difference would I see between getting the 6" Skyjacker kit with Donahoe racing Resevoir Shocks compared to getting the 7" Donahoe Racing kit with their signature monotube shocks?

Thanks alot

I know DR is one of the best....2500 for the lift if just alot...for me anyways. So that DR with the regular monotube DR signature shocks should be one of the best. I won't even be doing any serious off roading or any towing at all also.

yup its pricey... but one of the best lol...the skyjackers are very nice as well... you can also just upgrade a skyjacker lift with any shocks including Fox or Bilsteins....

if you want to fit the 38' you gotta go minimum 8' lift. otherwise you will rub on the front end.

So is Donahoe exaggerating on their website or something or are they saying it will fit but just failing to include that it will fit with alot of rubbing.

every lift company recommends going with a 37' tire on a 8' lift. them saying you can fit a 38' tire on a 7' lift is bs. i do these lifts all the time. we gotta trim to fit the 38's on an 8' lift.

I fit 38's on the Donahoe kit all the time WITH Minor trimming. I'm a direct dealer for Donahoe and know there products like the back of my hand. My opinion though go with 37's on 22's. The look is VERY sick!!

The lift quality of the donahoe is 2nd to none as is the ride quality. The skyjacker kits quality isn't anywhere close to donahoes. I also am a dealer of Rize and cage. I would go with Procomp before skyjacker on that kit also. Skyjackers spring rates are less than impressive.


Let me know if you want a prices
