Yeah mines pretty level. I just like it a good inch or so higher in the rear when nothings in it. But thats why is a jeep and not a real truck lol.

Due to the weight of my speaker box I have 1" lift shackles, but I'm level...almost. I still have the littlest bit of rake goin' on.

I agree. I have an extra inch in the back. It usually levels out when I pack it full of people and gear.

IDK about 1997xj, but with a 4.0 and a 5spd I was told I have 3.07's. Wouldn't this make my higher speeds more obtainable. 2500 is wrapped out on mine. At 3000, I'll blow a hose if I keep it there too long.

You can use an online gear ratio calculator to give you a ball park idea on what you might have.

When your daughter gets dirty every time she gets out when taking her to the bus because your jeep is always dirty

YKYDAXJW you don't have time to sell your other 2 cars cause you are always working on your XJ.

You know you drive an xj when you can feel what speed your driving at on the highway by the way the steering wheel shakes

...when you show up with a group, having various vehicles, and they all agree that you should see if the trail is passable
