Cheap. I would go with something else if I could get them for $100 like Rustys has. Simple as that. Im a broke college student who likes quality. Rustys seems pretty good to me. I have heard good things about them, and they are a name brand.

Rustys because they have coils for 2" lift. Iron Rock does not seem to have them, TJ or XJ. And they are more, not much, but still more.

Sorry, I should have noted an Lol or something, I left that out....oops. College budget, need more money for parts, but yeah, that was humorous above.


I already have the shackles from Rustys, and 2" pucks, but I would rather go full coils than pucks, so I am looking to sell the pucks and get 2" lift coils. (or 3" TJ coils) For some reason the 3" coils are cheaper, so by getting 3" TJs, I can save 20 bucks on 2" XJ coils. Weird I know.

Whats the diff? I have read that TJ coils are the same, but give 1" less lift on an XJ.


On a separate note, I ordered a set of 784 injectors today. Hoping for better mileage...might be running on hopes and dreams though. Guess we'll find out.

So a 3 inch TJ coil will only give you a 2 inch lift on a XJ? Seems like you are going backwards. Plus with the added weight of maybe a bumper or something like that, it may even be lower. Plus the pucks will give you a harsher ride.

No, no. I will not be running the pucks. They are going to disappear.

Yeah, I don't really get the TJ height thing, but it works, and they are virtually the same. My guess is its the coil tower location between the vehicles. I think the location (height wise) on an XJ makes the TJ coils give less lift.

I will get the "HD" ones (same price) for future bumper stuff. They are supposedly better for HD or snowplows or bumpers. Their words not mine.
