Iro 4.5 & 3.5

For those ZJ V8 owners running either the IRO 4.5 or 3.5 lift, what's the distance you have from the hub center to the fender lip (front & rear)?

Also, what's the stock distance with no lift? My 98 ZJ came with some Rancho coils in front (and a spacer on top of the spring) and probably F>R coils in the back measures 22" in front. I don't have the one for the rear but is sagging lol.

18 inches front and rear. I never measured mine stock, but I later found out I have the up country package. The IRO 3.5 springs settled to 3.5" of lift in the front. My front UC springs in the rear netted me about 4.25". I added a 1.75" spacer up front get rid of the rake.

All right! thanks for the details. That means I have 4" of lift in front with the rancho springs and the spacer.

I'm looking into matching about the same lift with IRO kit and eliminate the spacers on top of the springs.
