    I ran 32's with the 3.07's and std tranny in my 4dr xj and it was not too bad. with that size lift and 33's you will have to trim the front bumper and bump stop the front. I rubbed the front bumper on the 32's.

    Looking good!

    How difficult was the lift to install?

    If I was a Jeep, they'd have parted me out a LONG time ago.

    I'm a proud member of SOXJA ask me why!

    Looks good! My daily driver is the exact same XJ (black 98 2 door 5 spd 4.0/231). I didn't want to regear or chop it up so it just got some 31s I had kickin around. 31s on 3.07 gears make it pretty weak in the bottom end but it actually gets half decent hwy milage for a 4.0L. Youll be happy you regeared

    I'm glad your lift went well, sometimes they can be a total PITA! *L* But worth it...

    How does she ride with the new attitude and altitude?
