'96 Cherokee
Default YJ Vs. XJ

So me and my friend were having a friendly argument today in our welding class. She has a red 93 4 banger YJ...

Which she thinks is better then my XJ, Which at the moment is sittin' on about a 5" lift on 33's got 4.88's in it, 29 spline 8.25 rear end, Straight 6, i built the slides and the front bumper with a Warn M8000 winch.

Just want your guy's opinion.

well in my opinion, they are both awesome rigs, have owned them both...but the way they presently sit, yours, but it also comes down to the driver

stock for stock, you can get more flex out of an XJ then a YJ..YJs are stiff as logs, but the XJ, even with the rear leaves, they flex amazing...my XJ with 2 inches of lift and stock shocks, and springs, flexes 3 times the height that my YJ did with 3.5 inches of lift
.
plus you can get a stonger rear axle on an XJ then a YJ...and im not sure if you can get factory limited slip in a YJ with the d-35...

ill say this, the only thing i liked more about my YJ was i could take the top and doors off..but i as far as everything else goes, i love my XJ more

look how pathetic this is with the YJ...3.5 inches..no sway bars or track bars..
