Default zuknations lift?

Do you have a link to the lift?

All I turned up with a google search was the zuknation.net forum website...

a 4" lift on a TracKick is a lot. I hope that half of it is a body lift or it's liable to be expensive...

I can't afford anything more than the 4 inch although the 4.5" looks really awesome.

I'm looking into the 4.5" kit too, though I don't really want to go that high. Mostly I like the fact it extends the wheelbase 3.5". The control arm design is nice. So I sent them an e-mail last week with some questions... & I haven't heard back yet, which makes me wonder...
I'm going to e-mail again, maybe they missed it as i sent it on a Sunday...

I have 3" lift. 4 inch you have to change many things...why don't you try 3" plus the body lift kit.

Just to update on this: I did get an email back from Geoff at Zuki-Nation last Friday. He explained they were moving to a new facility & was sorry for the delay in reply. He answered my questions in a professional manner & was willing to change things to fit my needs.
Still not sure if I'll go this route, but a lift & rear locker are next on my list... we'll see!! I really like the control arm & rear suspension design of the alter ego kit though... very nice, but yeah... it's pricey.

I'd be wary about extending the wheelbase by any significant amount. Moving the front wheels forward uses up CV travel and restricts travel, moving the rear axle back may give clearance problems with the fuel tank and fuel filler piping.
I run the Calmini 3" lift with the 3" body lift and run 33 x 9.5s with a little trimming.
