Earlier this month I bought a 2000 jeep Cherokee with a three inch procomp lift and 31" tires with 103000 on the odometer lots of plans in the near future for her.

I thought I had put up pics it wasn't until after you said something that I noticed they were missing. I want to go higher on the lift right now it sits with a 3 " lift I would like to go to a 5 " possible a long arm not sure yet it's my daily driver but I want it to be a weekend warrior. Do an axle upgrade with bigger tires and body armor new front and rear bumpers and a roof rack

Going to install the Jks acos coil over spacers hopefully tomorrow to level out the front end with the back to even it out. I plan on ordering some seat covers as well to finish up he interior.

Well the other day I was checking the fluids in the jeep and noticed oil in the radiator now I have to tear about the head and put a new one on so the other up grades will have to wait.

Dayumn! Than blows! That's the Jeep thing you always hear about. They crave money, if it's not upgrades it's repairs. Hope all goes well with the head job. Hehehe

Your supposed to check the fluids (cracked head) before you purchase.

What make me mad the most is I bought the jeep from a used car lot and didn't event have it a full month and the head cracked I've been trying to get ahold of the owner but can hardly ever get ahold of him and when I do I always get the run around and the warranty doesn't cover hardly anything

Sorry to hear the dealer is screwing you around, but it isn't hard to believe.

Spend the few hundred on a new head and all new top end gaskets and knock it out in a weekend. I did mine 2 years ago, I also have a 2000

Yeah not surprised the dealer is screwing you on that. I doubt a warranty from a used car dealer would even cover a cracked head anyway.

On the upgrades side, I would go long arms at 5". I can only imagine how stiff that ride would be on short arms. Also include shackle relocation brackets in your setup. You can probably get 5" with the 3" leafs you have, shackle relocation brackets, and 1" lift shackles. Plus it'll ride like a champ! I can't wait to get my 3-link installed to go with my SRB's.
