Default 2000 2 door Build

I have had my jeep for a while now and figured its time to start a build thread. I have a 2000 2 door cherokee with just over 125k miles, automatic, 4x4. It currently sits stock on 235`s.

I like it! Starting from stock and making it the way you want it. Sweet!

I'm doing the same with a 1999 XJ, only I think mine is already bent up a little more than yours

I also just started my build, https://www.cherokeeforum.com/f46/ma...ehicle-196778/

And I think your pics are great, keep posting them!

Really looking forward to hearing what you think of the new lift. I'm thinking about lifts myself in that size so let us know when you get it on, how install went and what you think of the ride. What's the tire size for kit?

I just got done with the install and it went really smooth surprisingly. I love the ride of the lift and it gave me around 4.5-5 inches in the back and around 4.5 in front, the lift recommends 31x10.5 tires but i might go with 32's or 33's. I didnt buy tires yet.
