Default Skyjacker 6 inch rock ready double flex

Any advice on going from skyjacker 6 inch double flex rock ready, to long arm. Will I get any more flex from going long arm? I feel like Iíve got great flex now, Iíve ditched the heims and went with Johnny joints. The skyjacker seems super strong, and havenít had any trouble so far, donít wanna mess up a good thing Iíve got going with my rig


2000 xj not a daily driver, just a trail rig

simply bolting on long arms does not equal more flex. the rock ready kit is actually a decent setup. i doubt you'd see much improvement over a long arm kit. you've replaced the worst part about that kit (the heims).

thanks guys, what would u call the lift I have? Is it considered a short arm, or is there such thing as a mid arm. Cuz the arms r further back and donít use the factory control brackets. I donít know if would be a drop bracket design ethier, it my mind itís a cross between all three. Long arm, short and drop bracket.

You are better off with the mid-arms. Long arms often take a beating on trails since the are more exposed in the belly.
