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

Will be working on getting the front axle in and steering figured out. I ordered a ram and lines from surpluscenter.com to build my own hydro assist.
