Only one header since we have an inline 6 and yes it is. The stock manifold is a good design but you will notice a difference with a header.

so for xmas, i showed my parents two possibilities for new wheels on my jeep. im kind of divided between the two.

i like these cuz they would be keeping with the style of the original wheels
Granite Alloy GA8 Flat Black w/Mach Lip

but i also found these which look pretty badass..
Ultra Drifter Machined w/Black Accent

any opinions/comments/ideas??

defiantly no on the second ones. i really like ultra wheel-50/51 or their baja champ in chrome. they both look great no matter what vehicle they go on

haha aww whats wrong with the second ones?! lol. Ive seen the 50/51 before, and its not bad. Call me crazy but im not a fan of the baja champ style... too many circles... Im shootin for somethin to tie in both black and silver otherwise it mite "stand out" too much..

OH and totally forgot; So i mentioned before how a buddy of mine gave me his wrangler tube-bumper cuz he got a different one, so i did some fab work and mounted it on the xj. Now hes gettin a new rear bumper, and guess what that means!! i get his old one again! so ill have a matching rear tube-bumper to go with the front!

I wouldnt use either on my jeep id rather keep stock wheels lol. IMO a simple set of black wheels would look great. A black D window would look great. 15x8 4.5" back spacing or so.

I would go with the first set if I had to choose between those two. How about the streetlock D windows. Those add a little more excitement to the standard black wheels.

hmm call me crazy but im not diggin the D windows; although i like those better than baja champs.. im also thinkin of gettin 5, so i can have a full size spare. On that note, anyone happen to know if the swing-out tire carrier from a Blazer/Jimmy would work smoothly with a cherokee? granted i would have to mount it to the body on the side..

possibly in the future.. i live in the middle of suburbia and theres literally no place to go wheeling around here . The closest place ive heard is the Badlands, but thats like a weekend trip.

basically i just want to avoid becoming a "mall crawler"

sooo for christmas my parents surprised me with a Rough Country 3" Lift kit and i finally had about a week of from work so i got around to installing it.
PART I -=The Front=-
I rented some coil spring compressors from Autozone and used those to get the old springs out and to put the new ones in


After I got it out


Old spring compared to new spring


Old shock compared to new shock


And it basically took me 1 day for each of the front wheels..

After I installed the spring and shock


First Wheel Done! (then i realized i forgot to put the boot on the shock so I had to unbolt the top and squeeze it on


zoomed out view of the first completed wheel

Looking good man. Just watch the front axle. 3" is really pushing it on the stock track bar. More than likely the front axle is shifted towards the drivers side. Best way to fix it is an adjustable track bar which can be had for as little as $100
