1990 Jeep Cherokee Laredo

Old Man Emu lift kit with nitro shocks, spring pack, and all that good stuff.
Futura Adventurer RVT 31x10.5x15
I think that they are Cragar rims with American Racing caps.

From the center of the axle to the fender flare is 20 1/4 in the front and 20 1/2 in the back.

The lift and tires just give it a good stance. All in all, this is a great daily driver and is very capable for offroad stuff. All the specs are in my sig.

Year: 2001 Sport
Lift: 3.5" R.E. Super-Flex with Full Rear Leaf Springs and Rubicon Express Shocks
Wheels & Tires: 15x8" Cragar Soft 8's (4 in. Backspacing); 31x10.5x15" BFGoodrich All Terrains
Miscellaneous Items: JKS QuickER Disconnects, RE Adjustable Track Bar, RE HD SYE Kit (Tail Shaft Replacement), Rear Tom Woods CV Driveshaft

- Only real problem I ran into was the Rear Shock Mounts. The two bolts up inside the hole snapped off, so instead of fishing them out through the floor of the jeep, I bought 3X3 inch steel plate and bought the Rubicon Express Shock Mount relocaters. I simply welded the mount onto the plate and welded them right over the hole from the old mount. (Don't forget to remove the gas tank be4 you weld)

Back in June 2004...

With Everything installed...

I recommend everything above!!!
