Like above, 3" OME heavy duty springs, gabriel shocks with +2" BPEs, JKS disconnects front, no rear ARB, 235-70-16 Insa Turbo Muds

Now with +2" spacers/shackles and 30" Maxxis Muds, no photos yet. Need longer shocks and LCA mount points on the axles modding or cranked LCAs as they are touching the mounting bracket on the axle on full droop

1996 Cherokee Classic:
5-6" Hybrid lift (Procomp leafs in the rear, the front is a mix of rough country control arms & Tomkin springs)
Shocks: Skyjacker Hydros for 5" of lift
Tire size: 31" Firestone Destination AT's:
Wheel Size: 15"
Backspacing: Stock

I have trimmed very little from the front fender flares but that's because my front axle is further forward than it should be, helps with entry angle though. I have the transfer case lowered 1" and no SYE is needed. No vibes at all. With the stock wheels the tires rub slightly on the LCA's.

Go Big or Go home

2001 XJ Sport
3" Rusty's AAL
31x10.5 BFG AT's on ecco's
Notes: Rusty's shocks are terrible, and the AAL will probably sag faster. Rear swaybar removed. Rubs at full left or right turn, but that could easily be fixed. Some light driveline vibes, will put in a x-case drop eventually to bandaid that.
(I lost my before pics, but it was just like every other stock XJ on goodyears.)
