On to the build..... I have had this Jeep for 8 years(bought it stock) and went through many stages with it, every one making it preform better offroad, but also showed it limitations of the the stock axles and suspension design. This last stage has taken almost two years to finish(this is why I didn't start a build page then) It will never be done if you know what I mean but here it is for now.
8 years ago just put a 3 in lift, 31x10.5s, bumper and waxed her up it was my DD(someday I wished i would have left it this way:shaking

8 years later (posers shot measuring for my rear bumps)

I wanted to keep this looking like a cherokee hence the reason for not cutting it at the firewall and building a buggy (that will be down the road with a real chassis)

started with this rustbucket

cut it to fit a 78-79 shaft(was not fun getting the tube out of the innner c)

starting trussing it and mocking up all my mounts, I used Ballistic mounts for the coils and lower arm mounts everything else I made.

kept builiding and ended up with this
