    Default Wanting to upgrade to a 4" inch lift...

    I have a 06 Commander and already lifted it to a 2 inch body and I like the lifted look on the Commanders but I want more. I usually order my stuff from Morris 4x4 and they use to have a Skyjacker 4 inch suspension lift that I wanted but now they dont. Anyone know of any other websites that carry the 4 inch lift for commanders? I cant find them anywhere anymore. Heres my jeep.

    Anybody can lift anything cheaply with poor results. Lifting a Commander properly is going to be expensive.

    If I was going to lift a Commander, I would not use any other lift except the AEV/Superlift:

    Its expensive at about $2000 but the engineering is all there.

    Looked at the link - developed with Superlift. Looks the same as the Superlift/AEV kit, and about $500 cheaper.

    I would research it more if I were you though to insure that some specs were not changed to make the kit more affordable.

    Another thing to consider is that the Commander is a unibody which means you probably do not have a body lift. So if you order a 4 or 4.5 inch lift you are only going to get 2 or 2.5 more inches from what you have now because you will probably have to remove your current lift to install the new one.

    I know jack shit about commanders though. Just thought I would comment on what I picked up on in reading the posts here.
