Found a BDS 3" Lift for ZJ

I was wondering if anyone are running these??

If so, could you tell me the conditions on streets and off road.

How stiff are the shocks??

I'm looking for a stiff lift for my zj but can't find one at a reasonable price.

I found a great deal on a BDS but don't really know too much about it..

If i got the kit, what should i add to it??

For 3", I've heard nothing but absolute awesomeness about the iro front to rear kit. Never ran it, but probably 25% of the guys here do.

BDS springs are nice, BUT I'm not a fan of the hard parts at all.

Yes, thank you, I know.
I'm simply saying that if you want a good 3" kit you might want to check out iro, it is a good kit that performs pretty well on and off road. The majority of people here at 3" run iro, not bds. Plus, if my memory serves me correctly, the iro front to rear 3" kit is cheaper than a 3" bds kit.
