XJ and TJ Brake Changes

[et_pb_section bb_built="1" admin_label="section"][et_pb_row admin_label="row"][et_pb_column type="4_4"][et_pb_text admin_label="Text" _builder_version="3.0.51" background_layout="light" text_orientation="left" border_style="solid"] Jeep, in it's infinite wisdom, changed the front hubs and rotors about mid-2000 model year on the XJ and the TJ. Unfortunately, the only way that we know to ascertain whether your 2000 (and some 2001 models) has the early setup or late setup is to actually remove one of the front rotors and measure it's height.

How Much Lift Do I Need To Run This Tire On My Cherokee / Grand Cherokee?

"How much lift should I run?" This is one of the most common questions we see posted on forums and get asked by our customers.  Perhaps this post I just wrote, will help: The functional reason for adding lift is to fit taller tires which help in clearing larger obstacles.  Lifting higher than the height you need in order to fit the tire size you want to run, will give you exponentially diminishing returns. On a WJ or ZJ: for a 31"-33" tires, I feel 3-4" with short arms is about the max you'll want to go and more than that...
