    Default 99 wj suspension lift, bumper, winch, etc

    so after about a year of owning my 99 wj, ive decided its time to invest in a lift along with a few other goodies. im looking at going with a 6" long arm suspension lift from kevinsoffroad.com but was curious to hear anyone elses recommendations and personal experience with this company and lifts on these vehicles. im having 0k4wd in stewartsville, NJ install it, im not doing it myself. also im open to any suggestions for an in-bumper winch, icelandoffroad.com just came out with their new "go berserk" pre runner bumper which i plan to run, but idk which winch is best. lastly does anyone know where to find a decend low profile rear bumper for a wj??? cant seem to find one anywhere...thanks to all and cant wait to get on the trail with everything next month!!!

    Check out Iron Rock Offroad. A friend of mine just sent me a link to them. There designs look awesome and they are priced reasonable. They make a 7" Long Arm for a ZJ that allows 37's I dig it. But they do xj-zj-and WJ. Here's a link to the WJ lifts:

    You should check out http://www.jeepforum.com and search for Iron Rock Off Road, and also Kevin's. If you plan on going 6.5 right from the start why not get Clayton's while you are at it, http://claytonoffroad.com/product_in...roducts_id=176

    i have the IRO 6.5 CPL kit, rides great, love it, oh and its bolt on so you can do it yourself.

    good luck on a rear bumper other then kennesaw mountian, they have the market cornered at the moment.

    i would not use the iceland offroad bumper its fiberglass, go with the arb i have bashed it off trees and honda's and still there. the warn m8000 will fit.

    I can only 2x the (check out Jeep Forum.com ) statement.
    Great place to do some researcher before you spend. Go to the ZJ/WJ Technical section and you wont be disappointed. If I had done that my self Before I lifted, I would have made some different choices. You may have some drive shaft length issues with the 6.5".
