Dirty Diana Xj Build

Ok, so I sold the Zj moved to an Xj! Get a steel of a deal on it.

1997 Jeep Cherokee
4.0
74,000

Seems to run flawless, looks pretty good other than a little rocker rust. Looking for 4.5 inch coil springs for front and rear, shocks, adj track bar

Have you actually looked in the rear? XJs have leaf springs.

Skip the rear coils and just do a body lift. Based on the pictures you may actually be able to pull it off

Tinted lights will really help you get over the rocks. Keep a can of the spray tint, you will need it when you break them on the trails

I fit a 3 inch body lift on mine. His is a 97, so it will not have the troubles that the earlier ones did.
