No problem! I realized after talking with Jeff that I saved him over $100. I hope he enjoys that lift.

I can't view that youtube vid here at work (restricted) but I'll check it out later tonight. Hope you are doing well!

Hey bro, looking over your jeep profile and didn't realize cherokee's came with a V6 LOL.. you might want to update that.

I sanded rust off of the bottoms of the doors, the rockers, and the rear quarters, then I coated them with herculiner bedliner.

Well it would be best to wait until you have the $$ to do it the right way this time. Don't worry about the TC drop, I will custom one for you if needed. just get the rear leafs and sway bar links and I'll just give you my front coils. You owe me pizza.

We'll worry about the brake line extensions after we install the lift. I have over 4" of suspension lift and still didn't need to extend mine. You will need some longer front and rear sway bar links and maybe a rear track bar relocator.

The transfer case can be dropped by using washers so you won't need to worry about ordering a TC drop kit either. Don't worry so much, I know what you'll need when the time comes.

And I'm not sure about "Quadratec leaf springs". Quadratec is a distributor of many offroad parts and they sell brands such as OME, RE, Currie, ect ect. I'm not sure if you are buying "quadratec's" brand or another brand through them.. but just call me later in the week before you buy anything. I'm sure I can find you a better price.

You still coming home this weekend? We still doing the lift on Sat? BTW - I bought a headlight conversion kit as well as some Hella black magic aux lights to install this weekend too.

October 10th should work out good to install your lift. Also, the cliffs is a really fun but very agressive terrain park which your xj would do fine but you don't have a lot of experience and some of these trails even made me nervous. You are more then welcome to come with us sometime but you will need to be careful and take it easy that's for sure.

I'm not sure about going now but I'll let you know about the following weekend! I would definately help you with your lift. How's the steering stabilizer?

No sag!

I did trim my front and rear fenders and I'm running 31's now.

The pics you sent me look really good! They look a lot better closer up that's for sure!

These will probably be better for you anyway since you will be on the road 95% of the time and will only be doing some light offroading. Just make sure you stay away from mud... Those tires have a good tread pattern design for an AT but they won't paddle you through anything really messy.

Overall it looks great! Those black rims w/ offsets really make a HUGE difference and your jeep has been totally transformed with just that alone!

Now you need that lift installed! My friend Mike from Salem is helping me install my RC 3.25" next weekend. I'll ask him if he would want to do your as well. He will charge around $200. This way all three of us can work on it and you'll get some good hands on experience on how to start doing things yourself =)

I really like the black rims a alot!! You'll have to take some pics and show me the tires and wheels up close!

Those 29s look really good with no lift but I just don't know though... with you adding the 2" lift and only running 29s I think that's a little small. Isn't that what comes stock? I still think you should have paid the extra $$ and went with 30s but as long as you are happy that's all that matters!
