I've been runnig the IRO 3" lift for about a month and a half now.
I love my DT 8000's. Gives it a little bit sportier ride, especially with the Addco rear sway bar. Built in bumpstops were a big point for me, not to mention they are BEEFY
, They rock hitting potholes at 40 MPH. I never worry about them breaking when I'm acting like an idiot. I think they are one of the best shocks in their price range. many of the wranglers say they are too stiff but they should have ordered the 3000's anyways. 8000's flex really well as far as i've pushed them and hopefully i'll get some really good flex pics soon. The Tracbar that comes with the kit is BEEFY
I highly suggest the Addco and the bar pin eliminators. when you put the front shocks on, you'll be like "wtf, that doesnt look right" because of how poorly the bar pins fill out the lower bushings. Addco is just an amazing upgrade at any level, not necessary but a notable upgrade.
No new break lines, no A arm spacer.
I dont have any rubbing with Cooper Discoverer STT's 245,75R16 in flexed situations but i'm sure i would with 265's.
I put shock boots on, BPE's, Addco, and wheel spacers a month after the lift.
IRO's directions were great(if you follow them...Yes the swaybar links go on the back
) and the $100 off the shipping is great. not to mention the kit is on sale.
my calculatons with the lift and the new tires put me at 4.5 inches of lift with kit and tires. It ended up being 6" lift in the front, and 5" lift in the back.
