You are using axles from a '79 ford 3/4 ton when you go to 42s right? Or are you planning on running that d35?

please god not again....

I simply do not agree with an xj even with built axles on a tire over 37...Ive cut the unibody apart trust me when i say i dont trust my life on a 42 inch tire on an xj. However that is just MY OPINION.

I dont really have an issue with the lift height but i dont like all the added stress on the unibody. However Im not saying it cant be done safely with a cage or exo cage for added strength but the body itself flexs and I like to make my stuff last so in my opinion if it was reinforced with some unibody rail stiffeners and a cage is ideal in my opinion because 16 gauge steel is only so strong. My xj would see that up to a 38 if it was caged and reinforced and built axles but a stock unibody no way in my opinion.. But once again thats just my opinion.

8" that's more like 12"

My friend has a 8" cherokee on 35s

Here's some pics.


before settling \/ so its at about 9"


And on a similar note, some 27s on the same Jeep (used to pass bumper height inspection). That's me being a ******.
