So I sold my Samurai the other day and then the search was on for its replacement. I sold Sammy cause it just didn't have enough room for more than 2 people and it was cramped then.
So after a 2 day search and a lot of driving I found a nice clean 1995 Jeep Cherokee Sport it has the 4.0L,A/C auto 4wd. Has a low 142,000 miles on it and its got plenty of room for hunting buddies and gear and Colby loves it.
I need to know if there is a low budget way to lift this Jeep about 2 inches? Any of you out there have a Cherokee chime in I need some options. I'm not going to run any huge tires or nothing but I am going to go a little bigger and semi aggressive tire meaning probably nothing over a 9.50 tire.
Any helpful hints here would be appreciated.
Thanks
Frank

Good find! Hard to beat that inline 6. Shouldnt be easy to lose in the woods in that color! Really looks sharp!

Go to rusty's off road and look at their 3-1/2" lift or Rubicon Express which is even better. I wouldn't go with a budget lift because you will regret it down the road, a budget lift only uses spacers between the coils and is not a very good option and a good lift isn't that much more. I am going to switch my 3-1/2" R.E. lift out for a 5-1/2" long arm kit and go from 31s to 33s so if you want a deal on my almost new 31" tires and my 3-1/2" front lift send me a PM. if you just want to talk about cherokees let me know too, I have done a bunch of research and can save you some time.

Looks nice Frank. I'm sure the seats have got to be better than the ones in the Sammi.

cheap and easy 2" coil spacer , you can get a set of 4 for around $100.00.
