Xj First Time Lift

I just recently bought a 1998 cherokee sport and i have been looking into making it a weekend trail rig. I want the most lift without having to modify the driveshafts and I dont have a huge budget. This is going to be my daily driver as well so I dont want to completely ruin my fuel economy. what do you guys recommend as far as lift kits, wheels and tires, and practical road and trail bumpers. I'm trying to get into wheelin so everyones opinion counts, Thanks in advance

welcome to the forum! this is an amazing place to get information. check the tech/faq sticky in the technical forum for a huge list of available lift kits. i would recommend something like 3 inch lift with 31's or 32's, regear maybe and definitely some recovery points before anything else. are you looking to rock crawl, mud, or what? what rear axle do you have? for a dd i run the BFG al terrains and i have also run the pathfinder all terrains, both i would recommend. you will need to trim a little with 31's and a lot with 32's. bumpstops swaybar disconnects. im running 3 inches and 31's on my 98 limited so if you have any questions pm me or ask on here. good luck and welcome again!


98 XJ on 32's and 2-3" lift, locked, armored, and ready to rock.
