IRO 4" kit?

Anyone have this setup? I can't find any pictures of the 4" setup on jeep, or any opinions online.

It looks like any other XJ with a 4" lift...

Well some run higher than others. I was planning on the RE 4.5" lift, but it's more 5.5". RE's 3.5", the rear sits higher and I want to run shackle relocation brackets and have correct shackle angles.

Anyways I'm wanting 3.5-4" for a lower center of gravity build. I'm just wondering if their spring rates are legit, if their leaf packs are good (used to use RC, but I see they have their own now), and it actually is 4" as advertised.

I've had the iro 4" kit on for about 20k miles. Haven't had any issues, It lifted even all the way around. Definitely make sure you get their leafs. I read the rough country one are too short, give a bad shackle angle and bad ride.

Also, I had to remove one bolt from each side of the bumper mount. The extended shackle was bottoming out on it. I can get you measurments and pictures if you want.

Yeah pictures would be awesome. I can't seem to find pictures of their 4" online, only RC's 4.5". I'm planning on the full leaf pack (I hope it's not RC's). Instead of using shackles. I would probably just get the shackle relocation brackets and run stock ones.

My other plan is get the Zone 3", then buy RE 3.5" coils and do the shackle relocation brackets for 4". I'm just not sure how I feel about IRO using so many other random parts on their lifts. Such as known crappy rough country rear leafs.

These are the ones that come with the kit if you opt for full leaf packs, not rough country http://www.ironrockoffroad.com/Merch...egory_Code=XSP

Here's a few pics I already had on my computer. This is the short arm, full leaf 4" kit on 31x10.50 15.





This is the day after I lifted it. I think the back was 1/4-1/2" higher than the front, but it settled even pretty quick.


let me know if you want a pic of the shackle angle or anything else.

Go through Kolak if you decide to get it. He'll put a nice kit together for you and he's a nice guy.

I sent him a message on here. Is he a rep for IRO or a resaler for IRO? Is there a better medium I should contact him through?
