New Member! Whoo!

Hey guys, I bought my Jeep a few months ago (03 TJ). I'm in the process of saving money to do some work on my girl, shes basically entirely stock right now. I'm not afraid to go on trails though, went out with some buddies at Corral Canyon which was pretty fun. Can't wait to start getting to know you all, owning a jeep automatically makes you alright in my book (I have yet to be proven wrong with that)

This is my baby for right now.
Future project includes a 3" lift, 31" tires, 8.8 axles, winch, bumpers, fender wells, skid plate, and probably way more things to come

Speaking of new memebers ...

1st -- how do I join San Diego group ???

2nd -- I am looking for a GOOD 2" lift for my 2000 Cherokee XJ.
I do not want vibrations and/or crappy parts.

What brand and where to install in North County SD ???

thanks, Randy from Oceanside, CA

You are all joined up, just by being here.

The XJ guys will chime in soon, but a lot of us are going to the desert for the weekend.

If you plan to stay short armed I would only go with Currie.. They make the best short arm kit period! Don't waste money on an inferior lift just to end up doing it right later. Add the two together and you'll of spent A LOT more in the long run. I say Currie lift and 32's, a gas tank skid, some rockers, bumpers, cb, a SYE kit and sooner or later ditch that rear end for a 44 or 8.8. You can find a cheap xj 44 now-a-days pretty easily.
Wheel it to death, see what breaks and upgrade from there. If you are confident with just 32's then dont bother going bigger. Once you go to 35's if you ever do, you'll be opening a can of worms.

Regardless, you can do ALOT with a stock tj with a few cheap tricks/mods.


Welcome to the club and get ready to eat top ramen and PB&J once you catch the obsession. It will NEVER end!

heres a taste of good things to get as mentioned:

JKS swaybar disconnects! By far the best mod I ever did to my little 4 banger.
