IdahoEagle is running some of their parts and last I heard was quite happy with them.

Some pics here: http://www.naxja.org/forum/showthread.php?t=1115517

I liked the look of that track bar bracket, but didn't want the bar or the powder coating. So I contacted them and asked about getting just the bracket, bare. No problem. So I am running that track bar bracket. It is well built.

That was several years back, and their only web presence seemed to be ebay.

I have their stage one control arms and have had no issues so far, pretty beefy arms for the price. If you call them they also will make a 4 link for like $1000

I'm running their adjustable upper and lowers on my wife's Grand Cherokee. EXTREMELY happy with them. I'm going to run them on my son's XJ if I ever have to replace the factory bushings.

They do have a web presence now: https://www.core4x4.com/

I just bought a set of UCAs from them. They arrived today. Initial inspection shows them beefy and well made. They appear to be powder coated (I didn't investigate extremely hard on this one) and look quite nice. I plan to install them next weekend.

I got their adjustable uppers and lowers. Pretty happy so far. Just be sure to grease them up real good upon install. I didn't at first... Terrible noises.

I have their Upper and lower, Front stage 1 Rear stage 2, on my ZJ. Very happy with them, just make sure you tighten the lock nut and they are quiet.

I looked at them, but wanted the kind that are bent to give extra tire clearance....they don'T make them.

I went with stock grand cherokee arms with drop brackets on my XJ for now.

Installed my Tier 1 UCAs today. They went on easily but I suggest new bolts for the axle side. The arms are quite a bit thicker than the originals. I'll be replacing mine soon.

Do you know anywhere to see some pictures and get details other than calling? -- I'd like to see what they came up with...

Running their stage 2 adjustable lowers. I was told they are painted with quality automotive paint, not powdercoated. My lowers are also bent for more clearance, vertically not horizontally for tire clearance. I'm happy with mine, nice that I can drive to their shop too.

Long arms are on the website too: https://www.core4x4.com/products/cherokee-xj-1986-2001/tier-three/t3-full-heavy-duty-long-arm-upgrade.php

Nice to see that you don't have to get them in orange. They have a drop down menu of colors to choose from, including "bare and disassembled".

I like having a "bare" option. It saves me a good bit of grief when I find I have to modify something.

When you can get the "real" deal Currie arms for the same price, Why?

Are you able to get a full set of Currie, upper and lower, XJ control arms for under $500?

I am interested.

The Core 4x4 tier III package is $380, with rubber bushings in one end. (Linky: https://www.core4x4.com/products/cherokee-xj-1986-2001/tier-three/tier-3-adjustable-front-control-arm-set.php )

It appears the Currie CE-9102 uppers are $300 and the CE-9106XJ lowers are $400. (Linky: https://www.currieenterprises.com/control-arms-3 )

Or perhaps you can go to Amazon and knock off $40. (https://www.amazon.com/Currie-Enterprises-CE-9102-Johnny-Control/dp/B00DIYGM98 and https://www.amazon.com/Currie-Enterprises-CE-9106XJ-Adjustable-Control/dp/B00S6B5WLM/ref=sr_1_1?s=automotive&ie=UTF8&qid=1510597132&sr=1-1&keywords=CE-9106XJ ) Still substantially higher than the Core4X4 set.

The Curries come with JJs all the way around, but it looks like a $300 premium for them, from what I can tell.

I can see the reason to buy the Core 4X4 arms. Unless I am missing something.
