IRO lift - few q's (yes read faq's/search)
Hey! I guess since this is technically my first post, I should try and not look like a newb/retard etc. Bit of background, my 98 Zj is my first 4x4 vehicle. I've always been into cars, never really suv/truck type vehicles. I build and install custom car audio for a living at a local chain up here (Visions for any western Canadians) with 5 years in the biz. I found my Zj in an insurance company "write off" yard actually, being a victim of vandalization which apparently was too much ($$) to fix, so I jumped on it for $2500. Took a few weeks, but I repaired all the damage, and was left with a bone stock jeep, in remarkably good shape.
So... I've decided to put a lift and some bigger tires on this thing, and have some fun with it this summer. I've read through pages upon pages of the forum, looked at a ton of the vehicles on here that are already lifted, and decided to go with the Iron Rock 4.5" kit. I have opted for the kit that comes with control arms, but this is where my first question comes in. Is it worth the $160 to get the adjustable arms? Its really not a TON of money, but If its not going to benefit me, (still be used as a daily driver mostly) I'll put the money to something more beneficial.
Secondly, I would like to run 33x12.5 tires, and it seems that there are some with that size tire, but not a lot is mentioned other than there is trimming/bumper removal going on. Any other issues to look out for/reasons to go smaller?
And third, I want to know what else I should be looking at to keep this setup safe and "reliable". The kit comes with relocation mounts for brake lines, but I'm wondering if I need to spring for longer lines right away.
Any input, good or bad is appreciated. I certainly don't want to do this wrong, or be the guy that "stacks 3 sets of bb's and shoots springs at kids"
