8.5" with 37's, ummm yeah that might be a good setup on an XJ.

Nice two door. Makes me jealous. Wish i had a two door five speed. I'd rather see 2" lift shackles with shackle relocation boxes over a block though. Lift blocks suck.

the only reason that i am going to run the block is due to clearance issues with my calipers! i agree blocks suck!
