Iron Rock Off-Road Lift Reviews

Just bought a 7" Premium lift for my 95 V8 Zj. The installers have had a really hard time installing, and I am trying to figure out if it is Iron Rock Off-Road, or the installer that is the problem.

Has anyone had install problem with IRO? Is the instruction manual OK?

Any advice would be great, I'm trying to figure out what happened for my truck to take a week.

What part are they having trouble with? IRO is pretty good, but they tend to assume the owner is doing the install.

Yea I've read and watched numerous install vids and threads about iro long arm kits.

It all looked very simple for any competent mechanic. So if they are having trouble with it I would doubt their know how.

The install instructions shot what to cut, where to alight, what needs hammering in on the floor pan to clear their massive subframes, and a general starting point for control arm set up.

Ask them what the issue is and get back to us. Even without being there and seeing the situation I bet we will know more about what the issue is and how to correct it than they will. Haha.

I did not use a long arm kit but I have all four iro front control arms and bar pin eliminators, I did my lift my self and I am not a "car guy" at all. I have been very happy with all their products.

I've been an IRO dealer for years and I concur that they make a lot of excellent products. Much is made in the USA right in their MN facility.

If anyone would like anything from IRO please contact me. You can message me here on the forum or email me at [email protected]

I picked up my IRO 4.5 kit from Kolak. My brother and I had it installed in about 8-10 hours on a Saturday with a mixture of air tools and hand tools. The instructions were fine to follow. We've done a few different lifts on different Jeeps, but first for the ZJ.

It sounds like the installers working on your rig are not familiar with lifts. Or maybe just not experienced in suspensions.

Yeah a lift on one of these is pretty strait forward. I have never had issues and I have done quite a few....

We are all lucky that IRO exists.

I also have the IRO 7" premium kit, a friend and I installed it, and the IRO OTK steering and did an 8.8 swap in 2 days. This was the first lift either of us had installed. I'm guessing your installer isn't real smart. I hope you didn't agree to pay by the hour.

Same here, I have a 96 ZJ with the IRO 5.5" Critical Path kit, and I also have their steering kit.
Installed myself in the garage, and I'm not really a mechanic or anything.
What specific issue are they having?
