Sweet, I just glanced at my build sheet, and I apparently have a 124 Amp Alternator. So I guess not everyone has 90 amp ones.

WJ Grand Cherokee lower control arms = extra clearance for wider tires. The WJ LCA's are the same length, and have an S-bend specifically for tire clearance. You have to slightly grind the bushings to xj width. Besides that they are a direct bolt on.

For those with older XJ's 94-down, swapping in a 95-up master cylinder/brake booster is an upgrade for better brakes. The 95-up are dual diaphram compared to 94-down single diaphram. The 95-up front axles also came with bigger u-joints compared to the 94-down. But if your 94-lower has ABS it already has the larger u-joints.

You can also use the MC and brake booster out of a grand cherokee with a small grind of the rod. (and its just for the brake lights to come on at the correct time) Grand Cherokee Master Cylinder and Brake Booster Swap - NAXJA Forums -::- North American XJ Association

from left to right 89 MJ, 97 XJ, 00 WJ


EDIT: okay I must have missed that it was mentioned cause just saw this already in the confirmed list.
