I just want something small. I want to keep it as my DD so not something big. I don't do very much off-roading and I would like to start but not anything to big since I want to keep it my DD. Thanks for the reply.

Depends, maybe a 3"? What's your price range? If you have a high price range check out old man emu or rubicon express. If you're Low on the budget try Zone or maybe rough country

Look in the for sale area for venders and read the Rough Country thread. Not saying don't use them just do some homework 1st.

Glad you posted that I didn't see that cheap of a lift on their site. Maybe I'll go with the Iron. I guess I'm down to research now haha

thats the lift i put on my 91....great kit...comes with everything you need and it gives you options to upgrade....


the only downfall i had was my rear leaf springs were cracked...not part of the lift at all...but it was a bump in the road

very nice kit tho...just make sure you go over every nut and bolt to make sure they are tight.

Iron rock is a great company...good service...i suggested them to many people and never heard one thing bad about them

Go with the zone lift, if its going to be your DD rough country sucks, with a 90 degree shackle angle you better believe you wont want to drive it. I have helped friends install multiple RC lifts and and every time i manage to pick them apart with all the poor designs. I know from experience Zone makes a nice lift for the money, its literally BDS without the warranty

thats only with the 4.5" leafs. I have an IRO,but with 3" Rough country leafs. I was supposed to get the IRO 3.5" leafs but they were out of them. IRO is a dealer for RC. thats why i got the RC leafs. And my shackle angle is 45*.

so for my truoble they gave me a 3/4" front spacer and 1.5" shackle kit.
i have a total of 4.25fr and 4.5 rear. Iro is an awesome comp. great service, very knowledgable and very accomodating. I even have the upr and lower control arms. here she is. just installed the lift about 2 weeks ago.
