Green Been - Slow build LCOG XJ

I've been trolling the site for some time now. I'm finally making progress on my 95 XJ so here's a run down on its reincarnation.

1995 Cherokee 4x4 - 4.0, AW4, NP231, 30 front, 35 rear, 3.55's, tow package, factory skids front end, transfer case and gas tank, 145k miles when I got it. It started life in the State of Oregon motor pool.

My plan is to DD until I get another commuter car. Then I'll go to 33's or 35's, pending budget for axle upgrades, lockers, winch. Then I'll really wheel the thing.



After doing some preventative maintenance, and throwing in a new radiator, I picked up a lightly used 3" skyjacker kit - heavy coils, full leaf packs, and LCA's - for $100 ! Painted it.



Rusty's adjustable track bar



Home brew BPE's for the rear uppers, using the brackets from rear sway bar. New Pro Comp ES9000's



Going, going...



On! With some used 32's



Went with some new 31's for now while its the DD - 31" Goodyear Authority's. So far they're great tires. Also cut the front bumper, added tow hooks, Rough Country 1.5" wheel spacers, Thule crossbars, and painted the stock steelies black.

Here's how the bean sits today..

LCOG has nothing to do with 31" tires.

:\

What is with people calling their 4x4 a "LCOG rig" because it has a small lift and small tires?

No **** ^ I'm BUILDING a Low COG rig. I didn't say it was finished.. Hopefully it will be on 35's someday (as stated above), then maybe it will meet internet standards for LCOG. By the way, is there a definitive guide to what is classified as low center of gravity and what isn't? I don't care if everyone says that negative 3" of lift on 44's is the minimum or GTFO. It's got a small lift - so by definition it already is LCOG. Thanks for all the positive feedback, off to a great start!
