    What are you doing with the factory Wheels and tires?
    The weatherman says "Stay in, it's dangerous" and you think "Time to go wheeling".

    Definately a step up. (No pun intended).

    What does she think of it?
    So I installed the flux capacitor but the Jeep just won't do 88 mph.

    Mine do the same when I hit a bump and turn I have trimmed a little bit I have more to go.

    As for the the stock wheels and tires you can get a hold of Jeepman and see if he still has them.

    Hey,

    The cherokee looks sweet!!! I was curious if you went with the R.E. shocks or another brand?

    I got a quote from alex on the same lift for my Cherokee, and since they dont come with shocks you have to pick from R.E's and other ones, now the shock i had asked for a quote was a wee bit out of my range, just curious which one you went with...

    Thanks

    I used a set from Rusty's offroad and they are a great shock for the price.

    6.5 lift and 35's? Won't that make it harder to load it with groceries?





    Couldn't resist...
