aparently some of my pics are way too big so i only have one
after i lifted it

Lift consists of F150 coils
Bastard Packs made out of extra XJ main leaf [eyes cut off], 89 Dakota lower 3 leafs.

about 3.5 inches of lift
oh and cheap, other than monroe shocks
and i also built BPEs for it front and rear, Wrangler front shocks, F150 rear shocks:eek::eek:

finished my rear shock mounts, took it out, found out it flexes like a slinky, [i wish], but actuallly the flex aint bad for having such heavy springs [no sway bars help though]
and as a bonus i almost tipped it a couple times LOL

stock axles, i used Wrangler front shocks [no barpins, unlike cherokee shocks]
i also used F150 rear shocks also no barpins

so the mounts are really just BPEs

but one side note, the lower bushing on the F150 shocks (rear shocks), there is a metal sleeve in the bushing, you need to push this out (i used a bearing press to start them then finished with a vice, to keep from pushing the rubber all the way out too), then you need to drill out the rubber a good deal to fit it on the lower mount

reason for using these shocks, less expensive than lift shocks for a cherokee

thinking about removing the rear seat, and making a flat shelf out of that area, and mounting it there, along with a highlift and other recovery tools
