They don't wheel hard enough. But that's not really the biggest issue with me. It's just a poor design. How many people really run a "3 link" in a radius arm setup? Not many.

Sir I believe I prove your point wrong. I've had my IRO death arms for over 2.5 years with only a few issues that all came about from the rubber upper bushing failing. After replacing that with a JJ I have not had any issues except for blowing up the d30 twice.

That's because it's a JJ from Currie But seriously, the kit does it's job, but you'll never catch me running it. There are just so many better choices out there. I bought the RK 3 link, a TRUE 3 link, for $100 more than the IRO kit. I get to run a larger bolt in the joint on the upper at the axle end, I don't have to run a low hanging cross member, and I can adjust mine at the joints. However, there is a downfall. The lower link mounts hang a little low, but you will almost always have that issue with a "kit". If I was to do mine again, I would have just built it myself.

I was kidding.


I am thinking of gabbing some arms or radius arms up though, I don't like the way my jeep feels so soon I'm thinking bilsteins as we'll.

Also on a side note I picked up a toy axle fofree. It's got 4:10s it's temping me as it had the e locker.....

Honestly, at 3" of lift, I think I would have been just as happy with a kick @ss set of short arms, like Rokmens or Metalcloaks. Basically anything with good joints!

Im still considering this even for 4.5" height. Ive been eyeballing Curries JJ uppers for a while now. I need to check in on Metalcloaks stuff.
