    This kit SHOULD be standard equipment on all WJ Grand Cherokees (unless you go bigger). Get the aggressive look and feel your Jeep should have had from the factory. We include everything you need to lift your WJ 3 full inches.This is the easiest way to improve your Jeep's off road ability and looks as well as keep great handling on the road. Great looks, easy to install, and an unbeatable value price! We have the most flexible rear sway bar links on the market.This means you get the most articulation available without having to remove the sway bar or the links. This also allows for the most stable on road ride you can get.

    Fits 265-70-16 (30.6 x 10.4 x 16) tires on OEM wheels with no trimming even with the sway bar disconnected. Tires will periodically contact rear shocks, but most people choose to ignore this. It will clear 265-75-16 (31.6 x 10.43 x 16) on OEM wheels with the sway bar connected, but will require minor trimming (mostly front bumper) or 3" extended front bump stops to run this size with the sway bar disconnected. Tires will periodically contact rear shocks, but most people choose to ignore this.

    • Front and rear 3" lift coil springs
    • Front and rear hydro shocks*
    • Heavy duty adjustable track bar
    • Rear extended sway bar links
    • All necessary hardware

    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.

    Shipped within a week of ordering. Came with all parts necessary. Parts were of good quality. I bought the shocks from another company, so this review is on everything else. I have had the lift on for about 2 months now and have had no issues! Rides about as smooth as stock.

    I would recommend this lift kit to any WJ as a starter. This kit really makes it look like a Jeep as it was supposed to. I bought this from Nick Kolak over on Jeep Forum and I couldn't be more gratified with the amount of help he provided!

    I had the 2” BB before I got this kit and it real is a whole different world between the two. The ride is a bit more on the rough side and you definitely hear a bit more creekin but it’s worth it all. Damn good kit thus far. Will eventually go for the 4” long arm.

    The people are great the products are good too. I just wish the hydro shocks were not sold with the kit. I am displeased with the ride and I feel the shocks are the culprit. O/E the jeep came with a gas charged shock and the downgrade seems to me to be a weak point in the design. I love the kit and the instructions are way above par. will be recommending it to my friends as long as they upgrade the shocks. BTW Customer service is awesome.
