Body lift?

I'm thinking about a body left for my 99 Cherokee sport, so I can give it more an aggressive look and throw some 31s for the winter. Plus I'd like to be riding a bit higher up. Is this worth the investment in the end?

You can't do a body lift on an xj. Theres plenty of companies to choose from when it comes to lift parts and kits. Choose lift based of how it will be used.

I think my engine will last. But it's pretty rusted and the suspension need tweaking. And I figure if I lift it. I know parts will continue on breaking. Which is more money grr.

Check out rustys off road they got a good 4.5" lift it comes with all the hardware besides the odd and ends. I got a rustys 4.5" on mine I want to put a bigger lift but I have to put a sye ( Slip Yoke Eliminator ). Also this is a good time to by some brake line and flaring kit and replace the brake line that runs along the rear axle. You can get a brake line kit from Easton and a new splitter from jeep 4x4, together it will run about 80 buck for the brake line and splitter valve. Here's a pic don't mind the dent in the roof. My next project is fixing that and putting a roll cage in.

BTW you can't do body lift, XJs are a unibody design meaning no frame bolted to the body
