When there lifted, how is the ride? I imagine with 33's like most people seem to use the gas mileage goes to crap. But also how do they handle in a highway or just around town driving?

Thats a good way of keeping new members. Try politely telling him that there are stickies at the top of pages and tell him how to use the search function to his advantage.

It won't ride like stock, but some lifts are worse then others. Once you get to 32's and above you will notice a decrease in gas mileage. Obviously they will be more top heavy stock, but as for handling I can't say much cuz my jeep isn't lifted yet. I can give you a better answer next week.

Although he was being a bit mean, he was right, you posted this in the wrong section (no big deal), but just look around and figure out where to post stuff. You can pretty much never go wrong with posting in the Cherokee Chat section.

Welcome to the forum!

mine rides better than stock especially when loaded down. however my stock parts were very worn and replacing them with new parts alone would have helped. I am running 33s on mine and getting 17MPG on average with mixed driving more in town than anything else.

here's a photo of mine
