Off topic I'm sorry .
How does she like the cherokee on the street ? My sixteen year old daughter wants a lifted cherokee and it worries me some.
She drove my XJ offroad but snow and ice at speed is different.

My xj has a 6.5 Rustys long arm and it's awesome on the road, have had it up to 75 on I 75 with no problems. I'm putting a 4.5 Rustys lift on my daughters jeep In 2 weeks

Wrangler or XJ ? My daughter wants a Wrangler but the short wheel base worries me. My oldest drove a stock XJ two years of high school and I didn't worry. Thats why I'm asking because the youngest daughter wants to go lifted NOW ! lol

Thats what I wanted to hear I have a line on a LJ too but I might just go with a XJ.
Thanks for the reply.

The only car my old man ever bought for me to drive (not to keep) was an 87 Taurus he revived from a junkyard, and my sister beat on it for 2 years before me.

I didn't get a jeep until he drug home an 89 yj with broktid 4wd from the same yard, and he handed me the bill...

Ah..hahaha...I am going to give my daughter my old xj minus the lockers, but keeping the 12" lift and stroker with it.

Well once she gets a job and can keep it fueled
