What everyone above is trying to say is:
The XJ platform is a unibody construction. Body and frame are one. No separating them.
Any lift involved will be suspension only.
Its a common mistake.
:thumbsup:why can't you put a body lift on a cherokee?
I never understand why people do this when someone asks about body lifts for an XJ, as if they were born with this little bit of trivia attached to their umbilical cord. We all have to start somewhere. Making fun of a noob's question is a sure way to push them away from the Forum & discourage them from ever coming back. If you don't have anything helpful to say, zip it. It's okay to sit there & snicker at your monitor ... in private...........:rofl:
Yeah Josh, the XJ has a unibody. No frame separate from the body, so basically the body and frame are the same thing. No frame no way to lift the body.3 inch or larger. I live in GA.
you didn't hurt my feelings. im a big boy i can take it. You just make yourself look like an ***hole i don't care. if i had looked up under it i would have known but i assumed and this is what happens when you assume.when you buy a corvette, you know it has a V8, when you buy a mustang you know they suck, when you buy a xj, chances are you should know what you have.Because i found it humorus dont mean you have to, and joshwoods, a hard time never hurt anyone, its all good. I put chrome diff covers on my xj when i first bought it, cuz i didnt know any better. And i got laughed at alot!! and if you guys get offended by this ..........:rofl:. you need to stay in the house where the outside world cant hurt you.
I only have experience with the Rough Country 4.5" lift. I initially purchased the Add A Leaf kit (AAL) because it was cheaper. I knew then that I wanted replacement leaf springs, so I recently bought some directly from Rough Country.you didn't hurt my feelings. im a big boy i can take it. You just make yourself look like an ***hole i don't care. if i had looked up under it i would have known but i assumed and this is what happens when you assume.
any way thanks to all the others and thanks for your patience. i am now looking for a SUSPENSION LIFT for my jeep.
I'm sure we'll have a few jump in here and tell you about other lifts. Give them a read before you buy anything.thank you MUDDEROY i was looking at RC and now that is more than likely what i will buy.
and i will post pics soon.
