    There are only a couple of threads on the Ironman 4X4 lift. Wondering if there are many folks running this lift on here? Was looking into an OME lift but saw Haslefre's setup.

    Post pics if you got em. Pros and cons would be good too.

    I just installed one on my 08 on Sunday, except for removing the rear bushings and the spring compressor I used not fitting between the new coils, it went together like butter.

    I don't have any cons bud. None whatsoever. My only problems were caused by me and a shop...

    Even swapping from one vehicle to another hasn't created problems.

    I got the lift in. Until I talk with the guy I bought the kit from I will not post much other then I am not that thrilled.


    The 1st pic is before lift. 2nd is after lift. I think my back end is sagging more with the brand new 5 pack leaf springs with 2 overloads! I mean the overall differential between the two. I am aprox 1.5 inches low in the back end. Very depressing.

    Now I am going to either just put in a 2" block, air bags, or helper springs or add more leafs. Ugggggg.
