Jeep Cherokee XJ

What can I achieve with a 1.5" lift could I clear 31x10.50 15 with a fender cut and also can you upgrade to heavy duty tie rods other heavy duty suspension parts with a small lift just mild off road use really just driving on off-road paths and climbing here and there?

Re: Jeep Cherokee XJ

With 1.5" you should probably stick with 235's

Re: Jeep Cherokee XJ

With 1.5" of lift, 30 x 9.5 will fit nicely, 31's would require trimming of plastic and probably sheet metal also. No need for heavy duty parts for mild off-roading. Some upgraded shocks would be a good idea.

Re: Jeep Cherokee XJ

2" lift and 30x9.5's. No rubbing, fits great, drives great. Probably how it should have come from the factory.

Running the SFR 7075 aluminium replacement tie rod.

I'm not a complete idiot - there are parts missing.
