WJ Lift Kits

I am itching to lift my WJ. I found a 3.5'' lift from Rocky-Road outfitters. Does anyone have this lift? If so how do you like if? Really it is an Old Man Emu with 2'' spacer t-case drop, rear sway and control arm spacer, and front new lower control arms.

You should spend a little time ready the FAQ and other sticky threads.
Nobody here will suggest buying anything from RRO:

IRO 3" would be good for you. Great lift and the guys are great to deal with. ironrockoffroad.com

The only Difference is a A arm spacer which is not needed according to IRO. With a 4 inch Lift

IRO FTW!

A-arm spacers is recommended at 4" of lift. Just because IRO doesn't include an a-arm doesn't mean you don't need it. People have been giving good reviews on the zone kit but IRO has been very good to members on the board. It comes down to what you want to choose.

I am glad that I asked. Some if these searches miss IRO and Zone. Does the zone kit do well W/O longer front sway bar links?

No you should invest in some jks quicker discos for the front if you plan to offroad or just a add the longer links for 35 bucks. Both are an option at the bottom.

Not that I'm aware of, but then again I've been REALLY happy with IRO.

I got their sliders and skid plate, then 3" lift, then sold that and bought the premium long arm 6" kit.

At 3-4", you probably don't need the t-case drop kit. Some people don't bother with it at 6". I put it in and a month later I was buying a new front driveshaft, but I've never had vibrations, so I'm pretty happy. I knew the front driveshaft was going to need to be replaced anyway.
