I have been looking at 3.5in lifts front to rear to kits. I have narrowed it down to the the Jeep ZJ Grand Cherokee Suspension Lift and the IRON ROCK OFF ROAD: ZJ 3.5" Foundation Series Kit . this is my daily driver/ lite wheeler.


04 LJ 2in body lift, 4in rough country n2.0, winch, 35 Goodyear Wrangler MT/rs new style, poison spyder stinger, front locker

93 ZJ, 2in BB, Moabs, Goodyear wanglers MT/r Cherry bomb glass pack

The Rough Country lift comes with new LCAs and a TC drop. Plus the new LCA bushings and possibly less chance of DW from worn stock ones?? I going back and forth between these two lifts as well but I'm leaning more towards the RC side.

I'm told that IRO gets most of their lift kit parts from RC Ans then sold under their label.

I have the IRO front to rear swap. The front springs were stiff. The front trackbar came with a moog end, now Im sure its chinese. I ordered replacement and it came completely unmarked so I know its a cheap import. Get an adjustable rear trackbar, JKS is what I have now super nice. I honestly think a double shear front is the way to go period. I think four springs is the way to go also so you might as well go to 4" lift. Talk to people about shocks cause cheap ones suck I had hydro and they were ok for about a year then they started leaking.

Whoever told you that was wrong. While IRO does sell a RC kit, the stuff sold under the IRO name is definitely their own design. Compare a IRO and RC kit side by side and you will see a difference in design and build quality.

I'll take your word for it...how much better is the iro vs. rc? I just bought the zj last month. Tires and lift next month. Kind of on a budget. That'll be $4k in 2 months, so wondering if I can live with RC.
