I'm more inclined to go for a 4 link or radius arm setup. You break one of the links on a 3 link setup, you're done till you fix it. If you break a 4 link or a radius arm you still have a chance to limp it to the trailer to fix it and break it another day.

It depends on how much work you want to do. On a cherokee with stock axles and 33-35" tire then you will be just fine with a y-link style suspension. Its cheaper and easier to build then a 3 or 4 link. 3 and 4 links are hard to crame in the limited space on a cherokee, but it is doable. Depending on what size tires and what axles your running id say you will be just fine with the traditional y-link style. these setups flex very well for a multi-purpose rig.
