Neither did the ZJ when it was new. People said "coil-sprung 4-links will be the end of modifying your 4x4". And yet here we stand. People have been lifting IFS for decades now. It's just a matter of creating demand for an aftermarket for the new Cherokee. If demand for modifications is there, aftermarket will follow.

Those tow hooks aren't there for me. They're there for the XJs.

At least since the cherokee is based on a Alfa it will keep the jeep heritage of breaking down every few miles.

I have no likeness for the new Cherokee myself. If I was gonna modify an IFS, only a Hummer would do.

With that being the counter balance, I'm in need of driving one.

Hummers are far too big to wheel on trails. They're great in deserts or rocky places like Moab where there's more room, but by me, an I'd assume lost of the Midwest, most of the trails are cut through wooded areas. Good luck navigating a Hummer through that. Even a ZJ is a little big for a lot of trails.
