Yes. Stock XJ leafs are garbage. Never had any luck with add a leafs either. They tend to sag after a few months. Either new or at least a full bastard pack. If you've got the money buy new. If not search the forum for bastard pack info. If you want check out my thread on 3/4 ton dodge van leafs that I put in my 01 up/country. A little more work involved but it was definitely worth it and didn't cost a lot.

Checkout my grocery getter build. 2.5" lift. Cost me under 100 bones using mainly factory parts, including shocks. I got a little wilder and added bilsteins, now gonna order ome leafs and added my adjustable arms. 4.10s and 30s is the next step, with a 5 speed 2400rpm cruise at 65mph.
I've had a big jeep...I prefer small, stock flares, stock inner fender skids ect. I chose 30s over 31s for the fact I didn't want rubbing on the control arms. And with that my 30s I'm looking at (firestone mts) measure 30x9.6" true. A bfg at 31x10.5 measure 30.4x10.5. Checkout by grocery getter build. 2.5" lift.

And with that my 30s I'm looking at (firestone mts) measure 30x9.8" true. A bfg at 31x10.5 measure 30.4x10.5. So damn ear identical in height. Either will be fine, it was just my preference at that time.
