I've had this for about 2 years

1998 sport
265k
I put a 94 motor in it
About 5 inch lift
3 inch coils with spacers short arms and drop brackets
The back is two sets of xj leaf packs combined minus one of the main leafs , a three inch block, and teraflex shackles

Rugged ridge steering flipped with the go for it off road adapters
Drop pitman arm
Crown brake lines
35 general grabber at2s on 12 wide rims
TJ flares ( if you really consider that a mod)

All that being said . For my driving this bad boy has been perfect . Infact it got a 860 rti score which for what this is I would say ain't bad!

I am making this thread because I feel terrible about the fact that I refer to this forum so much and haven't contributed any back!

Yea the tire and rim swap was great. Mainly because the rims are big enough to clear the rotors , it would have been too sketchy with the 15s . Also I'm all about road drive ability and that alone made the trade worth it
