Its a very old thread, made by people who had their years of fun on here and moved on. The last 3 or so posters though...IDK. Guess they were too cool for us lol.

I saw how old it was. Lots of new blood on the forum now and thought we might stir up some new interest.

Yeah I was talking about the last 2. That one woody has only 2 posts and that's unacceptable

I also noticed that myself. I remembered seeing him about half way through the tread when I was reading through. It was pretty cool looking at all the information. I hate spell checker, it always gets me

My first XJ. A 96 with a 3" BB and blocks in the rear with 31x10.50 15s




My current XJ. 1999 w 4.5" RE coils and adj trac bar with AAL in the rear. Sitting on 33x 12.5 15s.






Wanting more lift as it doesn't seem all that high but new rear leaves and a Lock-rite for the rear are first priorities.

I think I have decided on the Rusty's lift. XJ Cherokee 3" advanced kit.
front 3" springs
rear 3" springs
hydro performance shocks all 4
adjustable front track bar
extended steel braid brake lines
U bolts
upper fixed control arms
lower fixed control arms
I am adding the optional sway bar disconnects.
Adding optional steering stabilizer
$924
My question is. Are the optional adjustable upper and lower control arms necessary? Are the adjustable better? Adding these adds $120 more to the cost. So are fixed controal arms good for 3" or are adjustable worth the extra money?
I wish I could make this a poll.

It mostly depends on if you want a correct castor angle. Being able to dial that in will keep that stock ride feel

Adjustable is better. It allows you to fine tune the pinion angles and eliminate any driveline vibrations that may appear. Also, if you change lift heights down the road, you can adjust for that without buying new control arms.

Welcome to the forum. I would take Rusty's over Rough Country. Rough Country is really kind of a low end lift. You will be replacing parts of it until you get tired of doing it and get a better lift. Rusty's is something you want to order over the phone and nail down the price. Otherwise they will gouge you on shipping

Rough country is like a bad drug. Just say no.
