    IRO LIFT KIT BUYER'S GUIDE:

    Kit Types
    Short arm kits:
    What is a short arm kit? A short arm kit is a suspension system that typically utilizes the factory mounting points on the axles and the chassis for your control arms. These types of kits can use OEM control arms, heavy duty fixed length arms, heavy duty adjustable arms, OR any combination of these options. Short arm kits are the easiest system to install and upgrade, and are very versatile. These systems are best used in 0-4.5” lift range, depending on the vehicle. From daily driving to overlanding, to light rock crawling, these kits transform your Jeep into a swiss army knife. With a low purchase price, and fantastic performance gains over stock, these are a great bang for the buck!
      FOUNDATION SERIES
    • Most affordable option
    • Huge improvement over stock suspension
    • Clearance to fit bigger tires and drive over larger obstacles
    • Has all required parts with nothing you don’t need
    • Great “foundation” to build on!! Upgrade when it fits your build timeline/budget.
    • Kit utilizes short arms (not a long arm kit)
    • Simplest installation, using basic hand tools. Minor drilling may be required.
      BENCHMARK SERIES
    • Contains all “Foundation” kit features PLUS:
    • Includes most common and value packed upgrades over the Foundation Series to remain budget friendly.
    • Easy to upgrade without purchasing duplicate parts.
    • Kit utilizes short arms (not a long arm kit)
    • Still a simple install, basic hand tools required. Minor drilling may be required.
      PREMIUM SERIES
    • Contains all “Benchmark” kit features PLUS:
    • Includes premium level features such as adjustable control arms, adjustable track bars, stainless steel braided brake hoses where applicable.
    • Highest performing short arm system
    • Kit utilizes short arms (not a long arm kit)
    • The best for mild lift height builds for all around versatility, adjustability, and durability.
    • Basic hand tools for installation. These kits usually contain several components with adjustments so we view this as a medium difficulty installation. Some minor drilling may be required.
    Long arm kits:
    What is a long arm kit? Long arm suspension systems use a chassis mounting system that allows a much longer control arm set to be installed. Why? This allows for a flatter operating angle for and more straight up and down axle movement through the suspension cycle. The benefits include an improved ride comfort than otherwise equally equipped short arm suspension, significantly reduced binding allows more articulation keeping your tires on the ground longer, meaning more traction without the use of traction aides (like limited slip or lockers). Long arm systems often have easier provisions for swapping in different axles. The ROCK-LINK kits are Iron Rock’s answer for a premium long arm system. These systems are the best choice for modern installers since the benefits are “next level” when compared to any short arm systems. These systems are best used in 3-8+” lift range, depending on the vehicle. The installation can vary from simple to difficult depending on the system or vehicle application.
      ROCK-LINK
    • Contains long arms in the front and short arms in the rear. This combines the premium performance benefits of a long arm system and the great value of short arms or leaf springs ;-)
    • Stronger than stock
    • Great for both high ground clearance builds as well as low center of gravity builds
    • Typically does not require exhaust modification.
    • Best for lifts above 3.5”, from daily driver to aggressive off-road driving style, including rock crawling!
    • Easy to upgrade by adding rear long arms at a later time. This allows you to build up to the ROCK-LINK PRO in stages as your budget allows.
    • Installation is usually longer than short arm kits due to the quantity of parts replaced/upgraded. Difficulty level is medium. Basic hand tools required. May require minor drilling/cutting.
      ROCK-LINK PRO
    • Includes all ROCK-LINK features but upgrades from the short arms (or leaf springs) in the rear to a long travel, long arm system.
    • Great for any and ALL builds 3.5” and up. These kits EXCEL in ride comfort with also providing maximum off-road capability.
    • Typically requires exhaust modification. Iron Rock does have exhaust kits available for many models.
    • Installation difficulty is “hard.” Typically requires welding/cutting/drilling.

    I purchased this right before this lockdown in New Jersey and I installed it in under 3 Hours by myself with a Jack and 2 jack stands and some basic tools. It came in 3 days and packed incredible. It took me longer opening the box and wrappings than to install it. I Put this on my Gladiator Sport S and Now I have 35x12.5x18's with absolutely no rub. Would definitely recommend.

    I ordered my stuff and had an issue during payment section... I talked to a live person who was extremely helpful and got me settled away. It arrived quick and in great shape. I spent a few hours installing it all and it performs well (a few short trips). If I had to have a complaint is there are no directions but they do have a step by step video.. which rear shock brackets could use a little more detail on install but with half a mechanical brain you will be fine. Thanks guys and gals for a great product!!

    Installed the Iron Rock 2 inch lift kit with DT8000 Prerunner shocks on an Overland. The folks at Iron Rock were great about answering questions before purchase. Shipment of parts was fast and everything was well wrapped and packaged. Spacers are extremely well built and made of steel. The instructions could use some more detail, but not difficult to figure out the install - torque specs would have been useful. Installation of the front spacers went relatively smoothly. Installation of the back spacer was a little more difficult and required a spring compressor - not certain why rear wouldn't drop enough. Test ride results: The ride height is obviously noticeable while driving - just right! The track of the vehicle was straight and I don't think an alignment will be needed. There's only a very slight (and I mean very slight) difference in roll feeling during turns, but that's to be expected since the center of gravity is higher. The DT8000 shocks perform exceptionally well - I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again. The lift is paired with Falken Wildpeak 285/75R18 tires on the stock Overland wheels. Overall I would recommend the Iron Rock lift kit for it's value and quality. Most people will be able to do the install themselves.

    Just what I needed for a little extra ground clearance and an increase in tire size. I paired this kit on my Rubi with 37s, it looks great. Install is very easy, and doesn't require a bunch of extra parts.

    You can't beat the bang for the buck with this kit. It installs relatively easy. As easy as things can be with removing coil springs to install the spacers. The shock extensions are nice as it saves you money and maintains the factory ride. You can do it easily in your garage without a lift.
