Default Pablo's slow 98 xj build

Hello my name is Pablo and I own a 98 jeep cherokee xj. Hears the story on the xj. I was looking for my first car. I really wanted to get a nissan 240sx s13 but I didn't because my driveway is super steep. So a couple of months went by and I finally made up my mind and I got my 98 xj for 3300. I am the second owner. It has a Chrysler 8.25 rear axle. I belive its a 29 spline not really shure. It had about 175k miles when I bought it.Here are some pictures.





First modification done to the xj so far is a Flowmaster super 44 muffler and a 3in tip.


I found some tj coil spacers in my garage. Will these fit an xj. I know I will need blocks on the rear.


I already got some tires there suppose so come this Friday. There 32x11.50 bfgoodrich at ko.

You have a 29 spline rear 8.25. Those spacers look to be 2"s wide? I wouldn't wheel with a block and with trimmed fenders you can fit 32s and 2"s of lift but not without trimming. Good luck on the build!

Update: I got my wheel spacers. There 1.5in wide there from Rough country. I also got my lift. It's a Rough country 4.5 in lift. I also got a steering stabilizer and a 12in lightbar. I also got some cool decals from sculldaddy graphics.

I will be installing all this hopefully this weekend.

This chevy makes my xj look so tiny.

Flexing before school.

My jeep as of right now. I got 15x10 bullet hole wheels , affordable offroad bumper, ramsey 8000 lb winch and naiper v2 flares. Next is cavfab 3 link long arm, rear shakle relocation, 6.5 in coils, rear shakle and shakle relocation, longer shocks all the way around cav fab 1 ton steering, jcr rock sliders, frame stiffners, quarter panel guards, rear tire carrier and gas tank skid. Not sure if I wanna run some 33x12.50 mt or 35x12.50 mt tires. Also what are good shocks for no more that 400 for all 4?
