Need input on '96 JGC
I am new to this board and would like to give a little info on what I have and my plans and would like some feedback. I have a '96 Grand Cherokee Ltd. with a 5.2L and it has 187,000 miles on it. I purchased it in '97 with 45k miles on it. It has been a very dependable Jeep and the only things I have done to it are the regular 3,000 mile services, brakes, water pump, radiator, A/C evaporator, and a couple tune-ups. I am thinking of doing some things to help the looks of my jeep as well as the handling. I am considering the BB and 31x10.50-15 tires and wheels. Replacing the control arm bushings, sway bar bushing, and any other suspension piece that is in need of replacing. If you have a reccomendation on what to do or what parts to use please post. Thanks and i have found some good info. here. Thanks!

a BB and 31x10.50R15s are a good start. Add shocks to that list, you probably need 'em anyway.
When all is said and done, more is said than done.
Platinum '97 ZJ LTD, I6 (see profile) Paid for!
Links: Kevin (AKA KOR) for ZJ & WJ stuff,
Kolak for performance stuff. I6 performance info at Dino's jeep 4.0 performance site
Other stuff: Kevin's Roof Rack. KOR sliders, Bored 62mm TB, Blaupunkt Bermuda w/ ipod, Brembo Slotted rotors,
OME steering stabilizer, H4 headlight upgrade...
Thanks for the replies. I forgot that I replaced the shocks last year. What BB do most people use? Any better than others? I was also reading here that I can take my front springs out and put them in the rear and buy some springs for the front that will give me 3" of lift. Is that a better way to go?
