It really has the best of both worlds.
M5? heated seats.
Overland? heated & air conditioned seats.
XJ? locking transfer case & 2 open differentials.
Overland? locking transfer case & 2 torsen differentials.
It's better than both of them.

Got my lift completed. I still need to sort out the front sway bar end links, but everything else is done.

I also did the same thing today. But also installed my batt hold down

And ifs which wont flex for crap. I doubt that grand will go more places than your cherokee. Not that they aren't nice. I have plenty of seat time behind my dads 2012 fully loaded hemi grand. Great car on the road, would never take one off of it though.

Wait, if $9,000 is in your budget why don't you build up your XJ with that money?
