Installing Iron rock offroad 2"BB today with shocks and steering stablizer. Got the rear done tonight and the steering stablizer, doing the front lift and shocks in the morning. Will post pics when the lift is complete. Getting 7 to 8 inches of snow cant wait!!!!!

So after about 2 weeks with the Iron Rock Offroad 2"BB installed i have to say its sweet. When installing the lift I also installed new Monroe Reflex shocks along with a Moog Steering Stablizer. Here are some pics of the Jeep with the new lift. New wheels going on soon.

Enjoy
