They also used to offer RC kits, IIRC. They had the 4" lift from them. I'd imagine that lift came with a RC warranty, not the IRO warranty.
Not to get off topic or out of forum...

A friend of mine just lifted his XJ with IROs 4" long arm kit. The lift for the rear was originally an add a leaf, but they offered a 3.5" RC leaf spring assembly as an upgrade to add a leaf.

I personally thought that was odd, but it does sit pretty on 33"s!

I should have said that they make their own coils, not springs. I wasn't referring to leaf springs. I can't vouch for those owning a ZJ.

Get some of those Bushwacker flat fenders on the XJ and it would look awesomer. I think they should make those flat fenders for the ZJ.
