Just a quicky guys n gals
looks like i will be the owner of a cherokee soon! well 2 to be exact, but one will be getting sold.
the one i will be keeping has a 3.5" re superflex lift and 32's, along with a lunchbox locker in the front 30.
plans are to run 35's on built axles with selectable lockers, install the 4.3 atlas i am keeping from the yj, and add some protection.
it's already a 4.0/auto, so all is good there, i hope
any way of locking the aw4 in a 2001 into first gear? i have researched a little and found ways for the earlier aw4's to lock into first, but not teh later ones. the article said something about the ecm being slightly different?
anyways, thats enough for now.


1998 XJ on 37's.JK Rubi axles with chromo shafts and ctm's, 4:1 transfer case, etc etc etc.The Cherylkee....
2003 Range Rover HSE, 4.4 Quad Cam.
1998 Range Rover 4.6 HSE
2000 4.7 4WD WJ with a rebuilt motor.
4.3/700r4/new frame buildup (YJ)....

Years to gain the hands on experience, and offer it freely.
Minutes to gain the knowledge from the internet, and quote it just as freely.
Choose wisely!

Hey there! Here is a popular solution that a lot of the XJ guys do, if you haven't seen it already.


Just went there and looks like he is closing up shop soon...so definitely take a look before that happens.
