Cherokee
« on: July 05, 2010, 21:20:15 »
Going to look at one tomorrow, it's a 1999 4.0 on  lpg.

Already spoke to David at Llama 4x4 about the 3" lift and have been looking at 31" muds to go on it.

Will i be disappointed with this set up after running a LR 90 on 33"s for the last few years, or will i be happy having a heater, leather sets, air con, seats in the back for the kids, and other luxuries.

Believe me, mpg is not a problem, what i personally think is that although it goes like stink, runs like a dream, is as comfey as a bed with a hot chick, its just not rugged enough....

All of the work is not to stiffen it up, it flexes and you gain from that - same as mogs need weight to get the chassis flexing to get the best from the truck
If you always do what you have always done.
You will always get what you have always had.

Well i bought it, good condition everything works, steel wheels a bit corroded though. I'm on the look out for some alloy wheels to put the big tyres on.      What other jeep wheels will fit?  It's a XJ Cherookee sport 1999.

Click here. It will show you all vehicles available in the USA that have 5x4.5" wheels.

Of course, you must look for the Cherokee, find it's centre bore and stud size, and look for models that have the same.

Without looking, I know that Wrangler YJ, TJ, Grand Cherokee ZJ, Cherokee < 2007, Chrysler Voyager fit. (Check the offset
on a voyager)
