Default Yeti 96 XJ

I recently Bought a 96 XJ Classic, Has some little (to me) issues, has the wobble of doom (DW) so good thing this isnt my DD. It has 167xxx miles, auto trans, 4.0 litre.


I just bought a Rubicon Express 3.5 in lift with pro comp es3000 shocks, hopefully will have that done this weekend. hopefully in the next few weeks, i'm planning on getting some 15x8 mickey thompson sidebiters, and thinking Dick Cepek 31x10.5 mud country radials

Nice, that looks like a really clean Jeep. I need to clean mine up.

If you have DW at stock height...most of the time the control arm bushings are to blame.

Hopefully, it'll go away when you install the lift with the new arms.

Looks great. If you could post a side shot of it, it would be greatly appreciated. I'm looking at getting the same lift.

That thing is in great condition for the miles. Great start! Did your DW go away with the lift?
