In this video I begin installing the Iron Rock Off Road 6.5" lift kit. I will be installing the Rock Link Long Arm kit in the front but for now I am starting on the rear and getting it squared away. -Enjoy!

    Cool

  3. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars RCBIII says:

    I know this is an old video but I just got this rear a-arm for my wj and I have to drill my own zerk fittings. Was hoping you had to do the same and would show the location but I guess I'll have to guesstimate based off the holes in video.

  4. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Corey says:

    def want to buy everything, they sell the complete long arm 6.5 inch lift kit and also 8 inch lift kits. the non long arm is ok if its a grocery getting lift lol

    Good job

  8. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Travis Medina says:

    Hey Eric, I just got rear end set of the rear upper and lowers from IRO and everything has gone on as planned until getting to the lowers, my kit did not come with any spacers and there is a ton of room. Did yours come with the kit or bought after? Just curious, I have an email in with IRO but figured I’d reach out and ask since I watched your video!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Floyd Finch says:

    Have u had the death wobble yet ..

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars james Park says:

    It seemed to appear that one of your fuel or brake lines mounted to the frame, was leaking.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve Wheatley says:

    How's that Earthquake impact? I've gotta Baur 1/2 that works just fine for my purposes.

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars joker says:

    What shocks you have because i have 6 inch wj on 35s but i cant find 6inch shocks for wj

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Steve says:

    Lower control arm…one washer left side one washer right side to center control arm. Just saying. NICE JOB@

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Andrew ROBINSON says:

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jacob E says:

    Yeah, bilstein mounts upright according to bilstein themself.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Norma Ramos says:

    Where can I buy that lift kit?

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Doug Kubash says:

    It's looking good! It was good to see the old suspension bolts come off nice and easy and no rust!

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Pat Vecchietti says:

    Good mécanic jeep wj

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars wbball15 says:

    Watching again, Eric.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shane Harrison says:

    Looks sweet cant wait to see the rest

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Alexis DeVille says:

    Does this model Jeep really require this many costly modifications to be a family trail worthy vehicle?

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Nathan Allen Pinard says:

    I have a 98 GC with little rust like this, though the WJ's interior is a bit cleaner. Dead trans but I feel better about fixing this now.

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars The Arizona Homestead Project says:

    lol, cherry bomb and dual exhaust

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars J_McPherson says:

    Whaaaaattt,,, never seen a wj "unbolt". Then again living in Eastern Ohio.. rust belt is real

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars R M says:

    You have been my go to guru for sometime now I never gave the hat any thought. I've been a machinist for 34 years and a jeep guy even longer. I spent a lot of years building jeeps for other people and when I left the machine shop I went to work for 4wheel parts. So I had a feeling you where ok despite the accent.

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars 001DesertRat says:

    You do realize that Vanessa and the kids will need to use a step-ladder to get into and out of the Jeep . Lol .

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Assessor 12 says:

    It looks like the sort of hot rod that kids did in the early 1970s: their gramma’s Buick with the @ss-end way up in the air but they were too cheap to put bigger tires on t.
    Loved the line about never-seize – it DOES really get danged near everywhere.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars david morrill says:

    Watch your overhead at Mcy Dees

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars BajaMedic says:

    How do you like those facom wrenches?

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Kohut says:

    Nice!!

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Shadowz Edge says:

    Eric O – "1/2 in drive with a 10 mm socket might be overkill"

    Me – "There is no overkill. It's called ensuring that the job gets done!"

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dan Bierschbach says:

    it gets better gas mileage when running down hill like that. hehe

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jim Akin says:

    I saw a machinist take a set of allen wrenches, and cut approximately 1" off each one with a power metal saw so that he could use a socket and ratchet to run them down and tighten them. I thought it was an excellent idea. Of course, most of the allen wrenches were fairly large, but not all of them.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris Kahl says:

    Glad I'm not the only one who finds themselves covered with anti-seize compound every time I use it!

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mark Holder says:

    The rear spring did not look straight to me, was not sitting centre. The lift looks awsome.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Notten says:

    Lead in the pencil. What..are talking about😄👍 lol love it..your a keeper

  37. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Chris R says:

    Do you not have ratcheting wrenches?

  38. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Marc Oppelt says:

    Thanks for this video – fixing to install these same parts today. Nice to see a guy with good mechanical skills who makes an informative, no-bullshit video. And you're a funny fucker too. Makes me laugh.

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Jenn Cox says:

    Never seize…..the herpes of the auto world……LOVE IT. The gift that keeps on giving!

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Ouellette says:

    Coming along great, one thing I found is that your shock boots need to facing downwards so that water can't get in and sit on the seals where the piston slides in. Another thing I did was replace the factory upper shock bolts because they taper down and cause a rattling sound over bumps. I think I used m12x.75 because the shank doesn't taper down but I can't remember. It's on my build page WJ Overland Build.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Lao Han Tun says:

    Very cool… buddy…..12 years old dream reborn again with extra boost in it….

  42. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Papa Jon says:

    Because you have the aluminum d44a rather than the completely different iron d44 you may wish to consider the installation of a truss to help prevent tweaking the axle which will cause continued bearing failure.  Have fun, I loved my '02 WJ w/ nv242.     -just sayin'…

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brad Plumb says:

    Awesome Jeep! No rust whatsoever!! Thanks for letting her down. I was wondering how low the front would look as opposed to the rear!!

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sam Phillips says:

    Sway bar on a Jeep….. my God what is the world coming to

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars jason tanner says:

    I get to tackle my first lift tomorrow. Only a 2 inch. Nothing like yours but it's a start for me. Great video. Keep up the good work

  46. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars James Duffy says:
