Cherokee Photos

I was wondering if anyone had an photos of a Cherokee with a 3-3.5" lift plus a new 1-2" shackle

i was wondering because I'm getting a 3.5" Rubicon Express lift kit and i got replace the shackle i just hate replace it with the factory one that cost like $6 cheaper than a higher strength one plus more flex

I also thought about a small spacer in front and getting 4" shocks

Show me your pics and tell me what u think

i think you should search. seeing that you have 10 posts shows you haven't really spent to much time on here. Go to the faq, and look through the 100s and 100s of lift options they have already set up with all the tire combos you could think of. its there, you just have to search. use google too, type in something like "jeep cherokee forum.....etc" and it'll come up

My second try: 1990 Jeep Cherokee Xj 6.5ish" lift with tj componets, 33" duratrac's, oversized roof rack, onboard air, body armor.
18 years old and lots to learn :D

What did he just say?

Go to my profile and look at my Jeep. That's a '92 XJ with a 3" lift on 31" tires. Hope that helps.

i have the same setup your looking at; RE 3.5 kit full leaf packs, JKS shackle, 3/4in coil spacer, you'll end up closer to 5.5 or 6in. If yours end up like mine did go ahead and get the 6in shocks and bumpstop accordingly. The rear is not so flexy, shackle angle is bad and makes the hide a bit harsh, i've got CA drop brackets up front so there's no point in comparing front flex and ride.

Looks about like this
The JKRU beside it is on 37's, my tires are the stock size 29's
