I have iro springs right now. I seen they had a wj heavy duty spring but in limited stock. Do they have one for the zj? Or are there any other springs that are stiffer? I know iro is 20% more than a stock spring in stiffness

Order re 4.5 in springs today also wire wheeled my winch play down and reprinted it. Fairly disappointed at the powder coating on the plate I have had it for almost 2yrs and it was rusting everywhere under all the power coating. Going to strip it all down and chassis saver it before winter.

Bought a 12 ton bottle jack for it. Was sick of having to use a floor jack and wood boards to lift it up. This is so much easier now, best tool I've boughten all year!

Yes sir, I used a 4.5 in diameter angle grinder with a metal cutting wheel. It was like cutting through butter with it, so easy.

Got the 4.5 in coils I along with adjusting the control arms again. Just waiting on the bilateins to be delivered! Also debating on wether I need to get a otk steering or bend the draglink more since it is touching the sway bar bracket on the pass side at full lock.
