It's one product I'll give IRO credit for. It's held up well, only thing is, after hard wheeling it likes to jump out of adjustment. And I've tightened the bajeebers out of it. Besides that, it will take a beating. Steers just as good as stock.

Good to hear, been strongly considering that setup once I outgrow my HD rod and factory inverted-Y.

Lol Im not gna consider myself worthy of having fab skills until I build something a little more hardcore than a cut and fold bumper.

Im interested in the IRO setup for cost/simplicity. No ****ty TRE's, all solid cold rolled rod, and doesnt throw off drag link angle in relation to trackbar. Ideally Id like to go to WJ crossover setup and OTA trackbar, but its hard to beat that IRO setup for the simplicity and price.

Besides, I figure if its still holding up with ibj behind the wheel its gotta be worth considering. We have a saying around here on wheeling trips... "leave your ****in purse at home." Seems like your crew is about the same over there ibj.

Well, I don't have much for pics of wheeling, but I do have some pics. My bud broke a 30 shaft early and we didn't have spares, so we didn't stay too long.

Before we left, my bud needed a shock mount. He was welding, not me. Don't try this at home....



Kasey's XJ stuck...



My carnage...



And this really sucks. The first and only hit that the sliders took. It's really unfortunate, because they work so smooth...
