Skyjacker has been a leader in suspension systems for almost 40 years and they are a must see during the SEMA Show. During this year’s show, they will have celebrities from Shipping Wars and Duck Dynasty in their booth. In addition to these high profile individuals, they had a few high profile trucks featuring their new lifts kits.
“We are excited about all of the new products because we are leading into our 40th anniversary which will feature even more new products and extreme builds,” says Lee McGuire, Director of Marketing and Operations for Skyjacker.
Skyjacker just introduced a new 6-inch strut spacer lift kit for the 2014 Tundra. This kit features CNC machined steering knuckles, front and rear crossmembers, front strut spacers and rear hydro shocks for an improved ride. With this setup, the alignment stays within factory specs, maintains factory steering geometry and there is no disassembly of the strut required to install the kit.
In addition to the 2014 Tundra kits they, also, have Jase Robertson’s new 2014 Chevy 1500 riding high with their new 7-inch lift kit. This new kit features CNC machined steering knuckles, front and rear crossmembers made out of heavy 3/16-inch steel, differential skid plates, OEM style end links and front stainless steel braided brake lines. These systems maintain OEM steering geometry, retains factory alignment specs, include differential skid plates designed to protect the drivetrain and improve ground clearance. In addition to all of these benefits, this system has passed the governments FMVSS No.126 tests.
The video above shows the test being conducted. Tests like this show how far this industry has come over the past 20 years. Manufacturers today, work hard to ensure that not only do the vehicles look good lifted, but that the occupants are not being put into harms way.
Lastly, they were, also, displaying Willie Robertson’s 2014 Ford F-150 with their 6-inch lift kit. With there being no major changes to the suspension system, the same kit that works on the 2009-2013 now will work for the 2014 model as well.
