Eric’s latest creation is this nice 2000 Jeep Cherokee. It is a 4×4 with 4.0L automatic, a sagging 3″ lift and bald 245/75/16 tires.

Mods: Stage 1 plans were to fix lift to 4 plus inches. 255/75/17 Duratrac tires with Early JK Rubicon rims and slider bars. Rear shackle relocation. Bushwacker flat flares and Aussie locker.

Unfortunately I had to start stage 2 as the fixed lift created a drive line vibration. Stage 2 was a slip yoke eliminator kit. The ride was horrible, so I’m adding control arm drop brackets too.

Stage 3 is 4.10 gears. Selectable lockers. Maybe a high pinion axle.
