IRO 3" Lift plus DT8000 Shocks

as well as rancho steering stabilizer, new moog spring isolators all around, 265/75/16 Falken Wildpeaks, and an alignment. Had a 2" spacer on front and rear, along with 240/70/16 tires.

Pics below

One complaint in regards to the DT8000 Shocks. The rear shock inserts did not fit well, the upper and lower bracket were both bent slightly in order to torque the bolts down, was not able to torque either to spec and this seems to be a common issue. I hope IRO can address this in the future with oem size and strength rear shock inserts. I found the inserts to also be weak, several collapsed before being anywhere near torqued to the given specs.


Other than that extremely happy with the results. Jeep sits much higher, has much more ground clearence, and I have a lot more faith in its abilities now. The tires do rub at full lock, unsure about when flexing. I would recommend this kit for sure.

Right on! Looks great. I just installed an IRO 3" lift too. Took it on its maiden voyage around the block and about broke my head! I'm so used to getting in and out at the stock height (13 years) that my foot caught the bottom of the door frame and I fell in, haha.

Its definitely a massive difference. Luckily it was all done in parts so I was able to get used to it
