What would it be that bad of a no no to lift a 2wd because I was thinking pf throwing a 2" spacer up front and 1.5" shackle in the back to lift a little and level it out.I know it wont help my MPG but it will make the thing look a lot tougher
Also here it is
96 XJ 4.0 Auto 140xxx fairly clean jeep and runs like a top. Im happy with it thus far
I'd love to see the under side of your CJ, granted it is probably in better condition than my 88 XJ was in after it was brought down here from Michigan. May have more to do with the previous owner and the fact he only used it in the winter or to launch his sail boat.

He is right you should not expect better mileage, but some people like me do get better mileage. Beside we all know it will look better with a BB or OME lift kit.

Umm in the XJ section, you are probably going to get a biased XJ opinion.

I don't like the fact that my son's head sits above the level of the back seat either - he's 8 now and out of a booster - high back or not.
I was wondering if I could put the head rests from my wife's '08 KK on the back if I opened up the Upholstery and mounted/welded in a couple of sleeves to slide them into. We put in dual headrest DVD's for the chillin's and now I have spare parts.
I only wonder if because they are front seat headrests and are a bit taller than a typical rear seat style.
Maybe I could poach a set from an old style XJ front seat like my '88 - I just don't want it too look too ghetto.
I'm back on my court mandated Rx. Other than the drool shorting out my keyboard, I'm here to help!
