Glad to see you got your lift and I was happy to give you a good deal!

Didn't mean to make you upset - I didn't place the order until after Easter because of the Easter Jeep Safari backlog. You received it in about the same amount of time (maybe a few days later) had the order been placed earlier. Holidays are logistically problematic. I was very backlogged and so was IRO.

Anyway, I'm happy you got your lift and if you need anything again, I will place the order instantly with the vendor.

Installed the LA brackets before work with ^^^ this guy ^^^ he's the one in the pics. Was really easy, took about an hour and a half. The fishing line method worked like magic


(Mylastresort)

Fed a wire through first then the plate with the line


The rest will get finished tomorrow!

So 5 hours later I've installed the front, had no help and had to run to the store buy a grinder and cut off my front shocks... other than that it went well. Gotta call it quits and study for finals now though. I'll get the rear done tomorrow, and get it aligned if all goes well

Looks good! Gears, 35's and a little sheet metal trimming and you will be good to go.

Hopefully by this fall, right now I needa recoup some funds, and just get wheelin! I really wanna do kevlars, your build is what made me really want them! Basicly if I can setup my own gears it'll happen very soon, but otherwise it'll have to wait a bit

"Iron Y" installed. Install was easy for sure


passenger side long arm... even easier to install than the other side. and yes I tried to put in my trackbar backwards for a solid 30 minutes before I realized I was doing it wrong :P


coil etc, didn't have to compress these to get them in so install was way easy


rear short arms. It's maybe 1/2 an inch longer than stock... also a breeze to install. Initial impressions it rides like a truck in the back now. Not bad, but I can definately see wanting LA's rear in the future. They sent me Nitro shocks for the front and Hydro rear when I requested all Hydro... but oh well. Rides awesome for having those ****ty RC shocks up front. I hate those things


The rear coils needed some lovin to get them to fit, those short arms don't have much droop


Rear A arm spacer and coils installed. Word of advice for anyone doing this lift, get a racheting 22mm wrench, it would have made life so much easier. Also disconnect the brake lines from the A arm, makes installing the spacer super easy. I think the stock bolts are 13/16 or 21mm btw, forgot but I had to go buy a 22mm wrench for the new bolts, and could only get 1/4 turns in at a time.


finished product! pretty happy with it


took it for a spin to walmart to pick up a couple washers for the rear swaybar. got a tiny bit o driveline vibes and it wanders a tiny. Brake steer was BAD. Needs an alignment for sure. Not sure if the brake steer is something due to alignment, or maybe install somehow, or just the nature of the 3 link? gonna take it to get aligned tomorrow. Also had to trim about 1/2 on each side of the bottom of the wheelwell due to rubbing already.. I plan on plenty more once I get it wheeling
