Default Shrek the 96 ZJ

The day I bought my 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5.2L V8, completely stock but very clean and w/ low miles. It stayed stock for quite some time until I decided I wanted to get it lifted



Day before the lift



Got a 3" lift kit from Supreme Suspensions for a pretty good price





Then I scored some cheap used tires that were still in good condition, BFG 265/70/16s and they fit like a glove

Looking good, Bro! Any issues with suspension or steering after the lift?

I can't really turn quite as sharp as I used to be able to, but the lift maintains the ride quality when I'm doing my normal daily driving. Going over 50-70 mph causes the jeep to get a little turbulence, but it's nothing bad

My dad built me a spare tire carrier, turned out really well and he even built a drop hitch on it for when I want to pull something
