2000 Cherokee Sport
Daystar 1 3/4" lift, actually closer to 2"
Skyjacker Hydro front/Gabriel Hijackers rear
Yokohama Geolanders LT235/75/15
Stock aluminum wheels

I had to heat, and bend the tailpipe over to clear the shackle. Also one bolt on each rear bumper support had to be cut off. They were hitting the shackle on bumps.

The air shocks are simply to level the truck back up if I have a load on the carrier. I keep about 50 psi in them.

Before and after photos.
