I believe Clayton Offroad recomends welding it. I could be wrong though.

yep



Clayton Off Roads package deal lift kits are specifically designed to offer the best all around performance. This kit is put together using only the highest quality parts, and vigorously tested to meet our stringent requirements. Because this is a package deal lift kit, you know that everything is going to properly work together, to give you the best performance possible. Making bulletproof arms is our name to fame and we back that with our lifetime warrantee. But thatís only one step of the equation. When this package deal was put together we had one main goal in mind. We wanted to build the strongest, most reliable long arm kit on the market. Price is important, but quality has to be a priority. Ease of installation is also very important, but strength and reliability has to be above the rest. If you save a few hundred dollars, and it falls apart in 6 months, thatís not saving money. If you can install it for less or faster, but it fails or leave you stranded in the woods, thatís not saving time or money either. These are all items we thought about when designing, installing and testing our lift kits. Our obsession to details, is what brings you the best riding, strongest most reliable lift kits on the market, period.

This specific 4.5 inch Cherokee XJ lift kit was designed to run 31 inches tires. Kit includes, a front 3 piece cross member, upper and lower front adjustable control arms with hardware, front spring retainers, front and rear brakelines, front coil springs, front adjustable trackbar, front sway bar disconnects, rear heavy duty leaf springs with u-bolts and degree shims. Shocks are optional and we recommend the Bilstein 5100s.

Key Features

# Weld on design for Maximum Strength
# Fully Adjustable Control Arms
# Premium Adjustable Trackbar
# Quality Military wrap leaf springs with pressed in bushings
# DOT Approved Stainless Steel Brakelines
# Easy upgrade to our 6.5 or 8 inch kits
# Lifetime Warranty

haven't updated in a while but blew my rear end apart so got a parts xj for 200 with a hp d30 and a 8.25 with 3.55 got the rear in shortened up my shock mounts so they dont hang as low and boxed them in and im waiting on the front till i go pick up a newer axle housing from my buddy cause my current one is bent and the other one is really rusty and crappy looking. i'm fabbing up some disks for the rear using xj front calipers and rotors. and will soon be swapping the front sheet metal over to the 97+ already have the newer style mirrors.

From everything i have heard about welding to the uni body,
i would never weld directly to it as it could rip off the uni body
cause its so thin or easily tear the uni body. But i have only seen
one arm ripped off the unibody so maybe it was just a fluke.

This isn't Clayton Offroads first rodeo. If they say to weld it on its a safe bet that's the best way of doing it.
