    Moab vehicle

    A friend is moving to Texas and needed to sell one of their vehicles so I helped them out and provided a new home for a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Jeep has a 3 inch suspension lift and brand new 32 inch mud terrains.

    It feels like suspension and steering needs some TLC, so I'll be reading up on what my options are. Initial thoughts are: Long arm kit, then lift it a bit more to accept 35's and maybe re-gear.

    This will be what I'll wheel in Moab and anywhere else where the Power Wagon would stand too great a chance of being damaged or scratched

    Glad you got an off-road rig. Hope you have better luck with your Cherokee than I had with mine.

    I've never driven a lifted ZJ-WJ that DIDN'T have steering or alignment issues. These vehicles are famous for death wobble after lifting. Fantastic off-roaders once you get the suspension sorted out. Like all Cherokees (and grand Cherokees), the wheel wells are very small so you'll need to do lots of work (sawz-all) to run 35"s. Hopefully you got the part time transfer case. Nice rig...the V8 Grand is a fun wheeler. I have several buddies with them.

    Had some work done to the Jeep. It no longer leaks, and there is no more surprise smoke. The short version of the story is that, with the exception of the fuel tank, *EVERY* "thing" with some sort of fluid inside was leaking. No more of that. Much more precise steering, and a new alternator for good measure.

    Next: Go play on some local trails and hills :-D

    How did I not see this post before? Yeah, this should be a bit better on the trails than the Power Wagon.

    Well, I suppose hat remains to be seen but: I am significantly less worried about dings, dents and scrapes on the Jeep than on the Power Wagon

    I had a lifted ZJ, thing was awesome. Only issue was that the rust was winning.


    Visit Schwarttzy.com for more parts and info on the H3 Hummer.
