I got the IRO lift. I like it but after about 2 weeks, I ended up buying RE rear coils because, since the springs have a higher spring rate, they are stiffer than ones that are usually in the rear, and therefore, the ride isn't that great. If you want to save around $150 and don't care about ride, the IRO lift is awesome. I love the lift, I just wanted to change the springs. Also, if you do care about ride, DON'T get the Rough Country shocks that come with the lift. They're really stiff.

I merged your two threads on 3 inch lift kits. They are too similar for different threads.

Ok so I got 3" rustys front coils, and swapped my I6 springs to the rear. The front, after months of trailing and daily driving, are settled at 4 1/4" of lift. The rear now measures at 3 1/4" of lift. If I were you, get new springs to match the front, or get some coil isolators from the JY/new v8 coils. With the v8 coils, you will sacrifice ride comfort and going over bumps will be stiffer.
I also have a front adj track bar from IRO, and it has worked out well so far. I dont have a rear track bar or anything, the axle is just a tad off center to the passenger side. Black diamonds are legit, they are comfortable on ride quality and a little more forgiving on your wallet.

You will feel it, my axle is a little off center, to the passenger as well. It causes my swaybar link to knock the unibody while flexing, for normal driving conditions it has not been a problem, but i do plan on fixing it ASAP before i go wheeling again... The solution being a rear (adjustable) track bar and then an alighnment job both front and rear.
