I know for sure I want to lift my 2000 jeep Cherokee sport but I don't know what lift to go with I'm thinking a 3-4 inch lift. I would have to be able to drive to school every day plus run errands for mom and stuff along that lines but I also want to play on the weekends.

So I guess what I'm saying is I need a in between of off-road and on-road lift WITHOUT "death wobble". What is the solution? What size tires should I use also?

Browse through the lifted XJs pic- thread on the stickies, and go on from there what you want. Any lifted Jeep can ride and drive like crap, and pretty much any lift height- tire combo can be built to ride and handle properly - even better than stock. It's all about your budget, what you want, etc..

Rule of thumb is the higher you lift or the larger the tire size, the more expensive and more work it will be to get it right. If you're on a fairly tight budget, I'd keep it at around 2"-3" lift and 31s.

X2 - I've played with my XJ for years with only a 3" lift and 31's. Have never been in a spot I could not handle on Jeep trails all over the Sierra's (not the Rubi!!). I can climb a hill, cross a creek and maneuver around or over rocks and logs. It also handles really well on the road, doesn't wobble or ride rough. I did not need an SYE or adjustable anything. I have aftermarket control arms, axle shims and extended brake lines and discos...that's it.

If you can't afford an SYE, adjustable arms/trac bar etc. keep it mild...3" is about the limit on that. Trust me, it's still lots of fun. Just be sure to put a camo tarp over your mom's groceries.
