LOW SLOW 4 bangin full width XJ

I'm real lazy and have very little time so I'm going to keep this short haha. I've also done a bunch of jeep build threads in the last and I just dont care that much anymore, I just want to be able to look back at the progress of this build.

Anyyyway, this build is my first XJ but maybe my 10th jeep. I dunno, I've lost track. It's a rust free 94 Cherokee sport with a 2.5l 5 speed combo. I bought it out of AZ so having a rust free jeep in Michigan is very nice.

Here's the build plan.
*keep the 2.5/ax5
*79 Ford Bronco axles, (cast wedge HP44, 31 spline 9" rear) 5.38 gears and some sort of locker in the rear.
*Modify the Ford radius arms with heims at the frame end.
*Full heim steering with DOM links
*3" OME coils and leaf packs
*Bilstein 5100 shocks, rears through the floor with hoops
*Stiffen up the frame
*37" tires
And im sure a lot more

Heres the day I bought it. No lift and 31s

Built it up a little bit. 3" OME coils and leaf packs. 5100 shocks, cut the fenders and lincoln locked the rear axle. Also did a Clayton track bar and bracket, added some 33" bfgs and made the doors removable. beat the **** out of it like that for a summer!

Here's my axles. 78 Bronco cast wedge HP44 and a 79 f150 9". Going to be modifying the ford radius arms by welding 2" .250 wall DOM to the arms and running 1.25" heims at the frame end. I started tearing the 9" down and it definitely needs to be gone through. One of the axle bearings fell apart when i took the shaft out.

Got my gears for both axles. 5.38s for the HP 44 and 5.29s for the 9".

9" bearing has seen better days
