Rubicon Express or IRO

Well i think its time that i get a BB, but i cant decide where to get it from.

I am leaning towards RE because they have bumpstop extensions, but i hear IRO customer service is second to none. I would like to know JF's opinion on this.

Thanks-Charlie

I wheeled my BB to the point where I needed to flatdeck the Jeep. I had no bumpstop extensions and ran 31's, just get a set of poly spacers and longer shocks (Nitro shocks). Should run ~$200

Ebay or the forum classifieds. They're all the same, just get a cheap one and some decent shocks and call it a day.

2003 WJ in Jeep Green Metallic, 4.0/242/4.10's. 4" Teraflex springs w/ RE monotube shocks and IRO short arms, cheap intake w/ amsoil filter, 2.5" hi flow cat and back exhaust, lots of lights and other misc crap.

I got my BB from fatbobsgarage.com with the Rough Country Hydro shocks. All of the BB's are the same and the the RC hydros are awesome IMO. It is my DD and the shocks are not too stiff but stiff enough if I want to go offroad.

Not sure if they carry them for the WJ, but they have a 3" spacer lift for the ZJ. Do NOT consider it if they do have one for the dub.

I actually have never see 3" spacers for a WJ. Probably because its a big no no to run them.
