    Default Iron Man goodies

    So I made a purchase a few days ago and I promised Andy that I'd do a writeup on the installation and pics of the use and abuse I will be putting them up to as well as my overall opinion of the products...
    What I have put on order are these three items
    Rear Adjustable shackles

    heavy duty track bar setup
    http://www.ironman4x4fab.com/Jeep_XJ...J_TRK_SYS.html

    and his new design on Long arms with tcase skid replacement
    http://www.ironman4x4fab.com/Jeep_XJ...ms/XJ_LAK.html


    This is the intro to the full install I should be getting these items on the weekend of the 12th or so ...
    Once I get these items I will post pics ...
    Warning Andy has told me these items will be in raw form and not poweder coated as they are prototypes and this will save for me.
    either way paint is cheap and I know how to prep and paint!

    Doesn't seem like there will be much connecting your front suspension to the unibody? It seems like that would easily rip out of the unibody with the mounting surface being over such a small area, no? The piece itself looks pretty beefy, but I don't know.... I'm no fab man so maybe I'm wrong.

    I know most if not all setups like this just bolt in, but I ALWAYS weld my brackets to the frame. I dont sell my rigs after I mod them

    This cross member bolts with the 4 factory cross member holes, as well as 6 additional holes that get drilled through the pinch seam, as well as full welds to the perimeter of the outer mount. By doing so it is secured to all 4 pcs of the uni-body. for this to come apart would require the entire uni-body to come apart. Most cross member systems only utilize half of these.

    As I sit anxiously awaiting the goodies I decided today to do some research and look into shocks... after much debate over cost and quality I decided to stick with pro comp ES9000 they have done pretty good aver the last three years on my jeep, after talking it over with the sales rep he informed me that rancho skyjacker and pro comp are all the same shock just a different sticker on em so I went that-a-way
    total cost of shocks was 202.96cause I had to also get a stem eliminator kit cause the lift I was getting didnt give me the travel I was looking for.
    I will post pics tomorrow I guess...
    now the only thing I lack is 35's and an alignment

    So I got to thinking today... there is NO way I can get by on 8 inches without an SYE right?!?!? that got me to thinking on a lift that high will the front DS from the front cherokee and the SYE still work or do I need a LONGER drive shaft than that?this is all adding up very fast I know that I really need to get 35's or even 36's which means stronger axles
    which COULD mean different lug pattern which THEN means new wheels which will lead to brake system upgrades which means new.... Just Empty Every Pocket

    Yeah, 5" is just about the limit without an SYE. You might end up needing a longer shaft with that height. However, consider that with 8" front and 6" rear, the Jeep will be level. This might be a little more doable for you.

    well somebody MIGHT be able to educate me, What Im getting is the iron man adjustable shackles for the rear and I am going to use those with the dakota leaf pack that I currently have what I have up front is 4.5 RC tj coils and I plan on adding a 3 inch spacer to those, Somebody tell me what I SHOULD end up with... I COULD be sitting at 4 inches now but I think its closer to 5 inches

    The front if my math is correct will be 5.5" Rear is debatable. I'm not sure how the Dadota pack comes out for lift.

    when I first installed it it was about same height but with the addition of so many tools out back the rear sits a little lower than the front.... its kinda ugly like that
