Another quick question for you people: I keep hearing that the Cherokee has a solid front axle and I know that this is a good thing, but I don't know why. Why is this such an important thing for offroading as compared to whatever the normal alternative is (a split axle?)? Thanks again.
Not to mention that most lift kits are much cheaper for the solid axle compared to the IFS setups. I used to have a 85 K5 and it would have cost me quite a bit to get a 3" suspension lift for the K5. It was only about $250 for the XJ.

Yeah, not to start another flame-war or anything, but the Liberty's were starting to grow a little on me until I saw those pics! I think I'm gonna saran-wrap my new XJ, store it and find an earlier XJ to jam around in, so I'll have true 4x4 goodness FOREVER! (Just kidding, of course)

Doesn't that Liberty look down right dangerous? I was amazed at what kind of differences there were between IFS and live axle, I mean, I knew IFS wasn't as good, but that bad! Why would Jeep do such a thing? Well, I know why, I just don't understand.
