Question Anybody have pics of their XJ with the RE6200 5.5" Extreme Duty Lift w/33's

Hey guys, I'm trying to get an idea what an XJ with Rubicon Express' Extreme Duty 5.5" lift (RE6200) and 33x12.50 size tires looks like.

I would appreciate if anybody had pics they post for me or link for me.

Thanks!

Not mine, and it has 16" rims with slightly narrower 33's but you'll get the idea...

This one has 35's but it is the kit you are looking for...

Thanks, that's what I was looking for!

I didn't know 35's were possible with only 5.5" lift?!? I guess he trimmed the fenders?

Anybody else? I would love to see more!

The extreme duty actually yields almost 7" of lift, and the red XJ has trimmed, and bigger flares.

Not my Jeep (too small ) here's a 97 XJ with the RE 5.5" Extreme Duty kit and 33x12.5 MT/Rs. This kit does give you 6.5 - 7.5 inches of lift.

So if you trim your wheel wells and add Bushwhacker flares you'd be able to fit 35's with this lift??

Are you still able to stuff the tires a little?

Easily. An 8" lift will fit 35"s, so a 7-7.5" lift probably wouldn't need much but flares, and that's if you did hardcore offroading. You could probably just get that lift, and get 35"s (if you don't plan on doing a lot of hardcore off-roading). But, a 5.5" lift, especially an Extreme Duty, leads me to believe that this Jeep will definetly be bashing boulders.

Here is a couple of mine. It is the 5.5" lift kit with 1.75" coil spacers in front and 1" blocks with 1.5" lift shackles instead of the 1.25" that come in the kit. It measures out at 7" of lift total.

Nice pics MJR. Thats got to be the sweetest looking "woody" I've ever seen!

I currently have the RE 4.5 kit but would like to upgrade everything the 5.5 kit has but want to keep my actual lift height at 6". The 4.5 coils gave me exactly 4.5" lift. Currently I'm sitting at 5"-5.25" with the 3/4" spacer. Of course my stock isolater is still there too. I'll be adding a heavier front bumper +/- 70 lbs. If I replace my current coils and spacer with the RE 5.5" coils, do you think I'll be right at 6" lift? I don't want too much... but would like to get as much "coil" and less "spacer" if you know what I mean.

The rear is easy, I already have the 1462 leaf pack and sitting at the same 5"-5.25". To get 6" I'll just add MJ shackles(3/4" gain?) or 1" extended shackles.

Nope just 33's. I will proably go to 35's once these wear out though.

i have to say that is the best cherokee (wagoneer) i have ever seen. its just right, not over done. just right, i like it down to the wheel choice and the wider tires. i am speechless. i always had a dream of pulling up to a log cabin in a woody wagoneer on an autumn evening. i am glad to see it. that avatar doesnt do it justice.

Uh so now i know what it is.

A Wagoneer ....we dont get those models. They look different to every XJ i've ever seen.

Presumably they're the top of the XJ range

The XJ that's labeled "Wagoneer" was a higher end option group with the vinyl "wood" siding stickers.... I guess jeep didn't want to totally kill off the wagoneer badge right away....as it had its roots as a Full Size Jeep....I had an 84 that kicked booty! 360CID V-8, TF 727 tranny and a NP229 T-case.

I'm not sure when exactly they dropped the XJ-Wagoneer, but it was fairly early on so they're pretty rare even here in the states.

Heres a nice full size one:
