SOB, of course i had to drive around with a 2 door exploder w/o an LSD... that or the ford LSD is worthless, always spun tires/one wheel spin, no freaking weight in the back end

Some have said better mileage and some claim worse. Im going to guess it is a step up for us renix owners and maybe down for the newer HOs. But more power and smoother idle is for everyone.

You can use 87-95 Dakota leaf springs for a bastard pack also. Same with the S10 packs. Good for around 4-5" depending how you do it.

i would be there is also a bit of the "oooo theres more power... weeeeeeeee" as they slam the gas. kinda like the CAIs

i would assume it gives better/more even and complete burn due to the better spray pattern

Anyone know if a 97+ heater control unit (dashboard buttons) can be swapped into a +96

not a big fan of slidding bars, would rather have rotor buttons

97+ mirrors are direct bolt in to older XJ's and allow you to fold them in on tight trails.
My 88 Laredo came with folding mirrors.

AFAIK they all run on vac controls, so depending on how the tubing runs and if the control system is the same other than the control you can probably get it to work... granted ive never pulled it to see

Also, you can also get a 97+ center Console to work in a pre-97 with slight modofication. I did it, Ebrake works AND i have cupholders, and now i have 2 ashtrays,................im so cool.

looking for 33x12.5x18 tires.

Bruiser -- 93 XJ Sport. 9.5" lift on 35"" Claws, Locked front & Rear, and some other crap. Rolled it
Cruiser -- 1998 XJ Classic. 3" RC lift. 32" Kuhmo Ventures. Sold it
1999 WJ Limited V8. 4" Mix-n-Match Lift. Nothing special.
