Iron Rock Off-road lift

Anyone ever used their lifts? Specifically the 8” rock-link long arm? I have a lift already on my WJ and I was thinking of getting the IRO 4 link upgrades but I’m also considering just redoing the lift completely with this kit.

I haven't used their lifts but I have used several of their parts over the years and have never been let down yet (key word).

Sorry should have doubled up my ?'s. What shocks did you go with and what are your thoughts about your choice. Thanks

I have their Bilstein 3in set on all adjustable short arms (front upper/lower, rear lower, rear upper a-arm/boomerang) and it's great to be able to correct caster and pinion angle. I've had one trackbar bushing fail me (installer error) in the 5.5 years the lift has been on and both the rubber boomerang inserts failed (installer error). I now have the flex joints on all three corners of the boomerang - they do transmit significantly more harmonic vibrations though, so keep that in mind if it's a DD.

The parts are heavy, make no mistake, but other than mild oxidation they appear and function as well as the day I got them. My ride quality is perfect for me (and shockingly my wife). I highly recommend them - check with @Kolak for best pricing and knowledge. If you aren't going to be slow crawling over boulders and need a bajillion degrees of flex, their 3 link is just fine instead of 4 link. It still has loads of adjustment and travel.

I have their transfer case yoke, SYE (which is really what appears to be a Tom Woods badged Advance Adapters), rear driveshaft (rebadged Adams), front shaft on the way, and lift. They're always the first company I think of when I need aftermarket WJ parts.

I run bilsteins on mine. Overall ride has been great. My issues is clunking from the control arms that where replaced but those where stock and not IRO's. I'll eventually swap in LA.

It's actually a 4" lift on short arms. Drives great on the highway and does well off-road as well. No complaints

I run the IRO 4-link long arm kit with Bilstein shocks and 265/70/17 tires. It was performed well for me, I run up to moderate trail here in northern Arizona. The only additional thing that I had to do was to raised the front for about an inch and a half because the weight of the winch and the winch plate had sag the front too much. I got the desired lift by removing the top spring isolator and adding a 2" light booster. Here is the link to my build thread.
