new iro long arms

Just wanted to show off the new long arms i put on yesterday. Crazy how much better the Jeep handles now. Definitely a great purchase!

Congrats on going longarm. The Jeep looks great. I like most of iro's parts but their Long Arm is one thing I personally do not agree with.

Nice Jeep but that is far from a true 3 link.

As a daily driver im very satisfied with the long arm kit so far. As for offroad durability thatll be the test. I know 95% of you guys disagree with their long arm kits but ive never been disappointed in any of ironrocks parts.

Did you cut the old LCA mounts off the body? I've been looking at the IRO long arm since I need to change all 4 UCA bushings and adjust the caster too, might as well upgrade from short arms haha.

No they are made to clear the lca mounts. Thats the other thing that i liked about them. If for some reason i want to take them off i can go right back to stock.

Be prepared! the arms are 5/16s dom steel. About 35lbs a peice. Not a chance of bending them at all.

I wouldn't worry about the arms bending. My first concern would be the junk caster adjustment, followed by a 10mm bolt holding the only upper link in place. Not to mention it's a disaster of a wanna be 3 link and radius arm cluster. I have had experience with the kit, and a buddy of mine runs it. No, it hasn't failed yet, but if it does, it will in a big way. I wouldn't trust it under my rig.

I agree aswell, the upper caster adjuster is kinda wack... However your jeep looks great and keep up the work!


This is how my 3link is setup...
