it is a superlift and as for why its so cheap is because it only comes with block in the rear. I believe 4" blocks. Its cheap and will work if you don't do any offroading. You'll get bad wheel hop if you end up burning out with it.

i dont know if struck used the blocks in the kit, but thats a great price for the front end lift and shocks alone if you ask me. i would buy that kit and do an explorer or chevy leaf swap with shackles for the rear for a really nice setup.

I bought my lift from 4wheelparts. yes it did come with blocks which is why its cheap. Its worth it though for the front lift and shocks at all 4 corners.

I bought a pair of 4" leaf springs for the rear(with the stock 2" block it gives you 6in's of lift), trust me if your gona wheel it get lift springs for the rear.

Skyjacker is known for a softer ride and better flex, superlift tends to be a stiff ride and a little hard to flex.

I like skyjacker their just expensive.

thanks that pretty much helped me make my mind up. I know my ride quality is going down when i lift it so i guess i'll save the $50 and get the kit off ntw instead of the $550 summit skyjacker kit.
