    I've read on the forums about the "Hazard Sky/Aussie/Val spacer" lift. Looks like just some spacers on top of the Trail Hawk suspension.

    I wouldn't rule lifting mine out though. :D If....it will make it ride better.

    Good. Glad someone is coming out with a lift for the KL. It's a Jeep after all......give it a lift already.


    All Jeeps should be lifted.......LOL

    No its not them , this company has replacement springs and shocks , spring rate is 10% over stock . 45mm lift over stock on standard suspension and 25 mm over on the Trail Hawk
    also have springs for KJs / KKs etc
    Seeing what it takes to be a dealer ,..............................

    New(er) company to the US market
    wanting to make lifts available for several vehicles that were not commonly done.
    They have heard of RRO, and that other combination of parts

    What interests me is they actually have replacement springs and heavier shocks for like the KL. Sounds like they are trying to provide a good system.

    One thing that remains to be seen is if the KLs suffer from the sag like the KJs did. Not many people have real high mileage on theirs. One guy is in the 220k range, but I think his is 2wd. There's 3 different heights. 2wd, 4wd, Active Drive II/Trail Hawk. Seems odd that it like old days where 4WD always sat higher, but it's true.

    It definitely rides firmer than the KJ did when it was young, so maybe it does have a better/higher spring rate.

    I think the new low rider needs 2.5 to 3" to give good clearance /grow up!:gr_grin:

    There was a guy at Jeep Luau who sells (and displays) KL lifts. He said he has both a 1.5" inch kit and a 3" kit. Unfortunately I grabbed no info...but that Jeep looks kinda like his. However, he said it was a combination spring/spacer lift.

    Edit: Yup, the one on the home page is his alright. He's got foxes all through that baby. Running wat

    Edit 2: Funny. Watching the video, I know where he is haha. Rt 287 here in Jersey.

    OK Tom, it's been 9 months. Can you deliver any news yet for the KL lift project you were referring to?

    That's it. i'm making a good riding low boy KJ at some point. just to see you people twitch. :D

    maybe if I get around to that neon on a KJ swap idea I've had for a while, I'll do an opposite.

    Yeah, Tom. What's going on?

    I'm not going to keep lowriding for much longer. Next spring, it's on.
