lift kit?

I have two inch budget boost lift and ten mins after I put it on I knew i should have gone bigger but w.e. that was year ago. Any one have experience with the iro critical 6.5 lift? Or should I stick with the normal rough country 4 inch long arm kit? They are the same price. Or the claynton which is 1000 more. Thanks for inputs.

Re: lift kit?

From my WJ days when I had mine with a 4" IRO with Longarm's

They all have there pro's and con's

Claytons is the best you can buy, But extremely pricey and extremely time consuming to install.

IRO Lift Kit every piece is hand made in their shop extremely helpful and knows the WJ very well, You can get discounts for being a member on the Green site. Upgrade to the Bilstein shocks or you will regret it. Also order the adjustable front long arms or you could run into suspension alignment issues.


Rough country seems to have fixed some of their issues from when i had my wj back in 08-11, Appears they are still using rear shock re-locators IE the shock sits to the side of the mount on the axle. their shocks not the greatest.

I would use JKS's trackbar with Kevin's offroad Durometer bushing's WJ's have a way of eating trackbar bushings.

at 6" you will need a new front drive shaft no question and a rear possibly or your gunna get drive train wobble.

Carolina Driveshaft was what i chose they were the best!

Depending on your year you might have a reppa reppa joint which turns out like this at 3"

Re: lift kit?

I looked at your guide and was wondering on a 4" lift why it would need a new track bar and steering stabilizer (not completely sure where it is..lol)
