MJ ride height? Am I sagging?

Measured from wheel center to edge of flare lip - front 18", rear 19".

Has about 170,000 miles on it, original as far as I can tell. Just seems to sit low compared to Cherokees running around here.

Any one else have an MJ, and what is the height? Is it different than an XJ, somewhere I heard that the MJ runs different flares front and back, would this account for a "taller than XJ" measure, yet still be shorter overall?

Re: MJ ride height? Am I sagging?

The MJ has larger rear wheel arches, so the rear measurement is different. Front is the same as Cherokees. I have measured a LOT of MJs trying to establish an average to use as "stock" height. So far, they average out to between 20" and 20-1/2" in the rear, so based on my measurements yours is down by an inch plus.
