I'll start out by saying hi to all that visit my post. I hope that some of the info. I post will help you out.
I found an 1988 cherokee limited in CL for $1800. Went and took a look and had a bad transfer case among a few small details. Offered $1200. and it all began. $$$ Heres a photo of my XJ before anything was done,

Well the first thing I had to fix was the transfer case. Luckily i had a hook up and had it rebiult for $350.00. My next purchase was a 6.5" Iron Rock offroad Critical Path Long Arm Lift Kit, Heavy Duty Over the Knuckle Steering with the 5/8 upgarded hardware, Slip Yoke Eliminator and Driveshaft Kit, JKS Quicker Disconnects, Rough Country 1.5" Wheel Spacers. It took me a toal of about 20 hrs. to install the kit myself. I had to call IRO a few times and all the guys at the shop where cool and gave me there opinions. Here are a few pictures,





The old stuff...

And the aftermath of the lift. All i can say is I LOVE THIS LIFT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is awsome. The lift handles great running down the road and freeway. and I have got a ton of articulation. Here are a few more pictures,

Well I'd understand it if they guy who made the thread wrote that, but it was someone who didn't post in this thread at all until that post. I guess I am the only one who noticed that..
