I don't know if that worked yet or not. I'll add a link to my sig later. Well here's what you want. 97 Cherokee Country. 3" Skyjacker soft ride. Skyjacker these are stiff as he!! Nitro 8000's. Not me that is what it say's on the box. JKS ACOS, Skyjacker rear lift shackles, very creative fender trimming. ARB BullBar Bumper, milemarker 8000 winch. Skidrow gas tank and Lower control arm mount skids. Brake lines exhaust intake, etc. Anyway, left rear rubs, I broke the bump stop and never fixed it. Don't try this at home either. Next the left rear hit the frame rail and yes the axle tube bent the flimsy unibody frame rail, who would have guessed it. I sawzalled the ARB bumper, bent the ARB Bumper, and now it rubs again. Now I am going to sawzall it again. If it rubs remove it. Ok I forgot this part, 33x12.50R15 Mickey Thompson Baja Claws.

The 94 (white one) is setup with about 5" of lift or so. 33" BFG muds. Has new springs, shocks, upper and lower arms, leaf packs and blocks in rear.

The 88 I have since taken the blocks and spacers out, dropping it to about 3.5" and put 30's on for my DD.

Though I wheel through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou lockers are with me;
Thy lift and thy tires, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a spotter before me in the presence of mine obstacles;
