XJ Bolt Pattern

Want to get exact bolt pattern for my 94XJ. Some folks/retailers say 5 on 5" and others 5 on 4.5". Now, which is correct?

Also, Is there a possibility that Jeep made a 2.8L V6 XJ? just a thought.

Thanks!

Its 5 on 4.5. Stock backspacing for an XJ rim is about 5.25"

HTH


yes there was a v6 back in the day....

Check out the stock specs thread at the top of the section

Yes they made a 2.8, but stay away from it. Seriously you don't want that thing!

And to be correct, the 2.8L V6 is a GM engine. Jeep didn't "make" it, but it was used. And yes it sucks.

Yes, XJ's are a 5 on 4.5 bolt pattern... shared with other vehicles like the ford explorer, ford ranger, ford bronco II (and the original I as well, but not the full-size bronco). There are some others I think but those are the most common.

My wife had an 86 Jeep Cherokee Limited when we first met. It had the GM 2.8L V6 in it and it was way under powered, especially for highway driving. There was just too much weight for that little V6 and it worked to pull it down the road. It turned out to be a hobby for me, I was always wrenching on that thing to fix something or another. It had 120,000 on it when we traded it in on the 98 and it wouldn't have lasted much longer. It was a great vehicle except for the motor. I have read though that people say it runs great for a trail machine.
