I will go with the 285/70 on the 17 OEM rims and install a 1.5 inch spacer.

Thanks for all the advice.

Will try to take pictures before/after.

Tech Talk / Re: 2 inch lift for my Cherokee

Broken axle, that’s the shop that hps4evr works for, they can install a good 2” lift for far cheaper than that quote, or the top of the line 8” Clayton 3 link front with 4 link coil conversion for probably still less than that quote!

I’m curious what shop quoted such a ridiculous price? And did they at least try to grab your tits while trying to frack you?

Looks like Daystar and rough country have 2" lift spacer kits. Parts are affordable but the labor to install is more time consuming.

Tech Talk / 2 inch lift for my Cherokee
« Last post by RonsCRD on November 08, 2017, 09:39:17 PM »
Hello all

Was wanting some help finding a decent 2" lift for my 08 cherokee. I called a local shop and they were talking 5500.00 bucks!!! No!
He said i needed new springs, shcoks blah blah blah.
I want a basic small non radical lift to run a slightly bigger tire and have slightly more clearance. I have to daily drive this thing and want to maintain a nice drive but a little more trail driving capability. Any advice on a good lift and a shop that can install for a reasonable amount. 5500.00 is way out of the question.

Thank in advance

Jeep Stuff For Sale / 97 Grand Cherokee

So time to clear some space in the driveway.  Selling my 97 Grand Cherokee with a 4.0 and 242 Tcase.  It runs well and has been quite reliable for me.  Well maintained and has decent tires and a good windshield.  Has about 320K on it and runs strong.  Comes with a 98 4.0 Grand that is an insurance write off (damage to rear driverside door and quarter) and has a blown head gasket.  The parts Jeep has heated seats, remote starter and a few other things that I was planning to switch over to the 97 but never did get around to it. 

My kijiji ad has a couple pics of the 97 https://www.kijiji.ca/v-cars-trucks/calgary/1997-jeep-grand-cherokee/1311665818

I'd let them both go for $1500 to someone from the CJA

 Yeah they are definitely going to rub on the trail, I would say. I'm running P285/70R17 Duratracs on 17x9 rims with 4 1/4 inch backspacing...  and they still rub on occasion with a 3 inch lift.
 I think a Bigger concern with the combination you're proposing below is that you're likely to encounter some shifting issues if you're running an automatic transmission. Unless of course you have a tuner already to reprogram the shift points for those tires.

Just no time to use it.
It should be in someones garage that has time to get out on the trail.
Between: work, sports for the boys and my own training time no time left in a week. 
I also plan to start teaching karate very soon so will be even busier.
