My IRO springs are like new, so instead of yanking them out and trying to sell them at a loss then buy new springs and pay for shipping I decided to be cheap/lazy and just drop in the spacers for $100ish.

I don't even need the lift to run bigger tires (yet) so I just kinda threw the spacers in because I have all the rest of the parts to support the taller lift.

I was cheap/lazy on the shocks too. I think my Bilstiens (also like new) are only supposed to be rated up to like 4" of lift.

I was able to get 2.5" shock extensions from a JK to work up front with the use of JK shock bushings (I had a spare set laying around from when I upgraded my JKU Sport to stiffer stock springs & Rubicon shocks) which should be fine.

The rear shocks are just going to be a little short but I'm just going to run it and hope they work ok.

Phase 2 of mock-up for the TAG Rock Sliders. Need to open up the mounting feet a little to get the last 3/4" of fit and level the Sliders out.

Went ahead and jacked it up to where it should sit with new springs (3" over stock), I like it.

Post a pic when you do. I've been meaning to look for a pic of a WJ with a winch plate, but I'm just kind of bummy and lazy these days...

Drive mine in the snow today, I love it. I need some better tires real soon, though.

Yeah both of them I was excited about is a no go, one of the Yjs had ford Chevy and dodge runnin gear, and for good measures they left the Dana 35 in the rear with 35s lol all I could see was twisted shafts lol

Heck if I wanted that I could just put a 6" on the Wj an throw 35s on and twist axels all day lol

Yeah I have to agree 200 seems way more then I want to spend on a dang seat. I guess I will deal with the roller coaster seat until summer time.
