Jeep Cherokee XJ Lift Kit 8 inch Long Arm fits ’84 to ’01 XJ’s
Do you yearn for more lift on your XJ Cherokee to run that larger tire size, but know that your short little factory-length control arms are maxed out on angle, resulting in a jittery ride and/or Death Wobble? Thanks to a recent partnership with industry leading Long-Arm kit manufacturer Clayton’s Offroad, we are able to offer you the Jeep Cherokee XJ Lift Kit 8 inch Long Arm for your Cherokee. Does the thought of driving your XJ on short arms over rail road tracks send chills up your spine? Have you lost fillings when driving through road construction? Does your XJ go into convulsions when you hit a seam or pothole in the pavement? If so, then it’s time for a long arm kit, my friend!!! This one even includes our rear leaf-to-coil conversion kit!
Long arm kits completely re-establish more correct geometry for your leading and trailing control arms, allowing a pillow-smooth ride over paved highways and offroad trails alike, as well as articulation galore. Imagine “floating” over the sections of washboard road that used to make your entire XJ shake and chatter. By re-establishing new control arm locations and fitting your Cherokee with longer control arms, the energy of the road imperfections are now transmitted directly into the springs and shock absorbers, where they belong…rather than being transmitted up the lower and upper stock control arms due to the poorly-placed control arm mounts on the “frame” for anything more than around 2.5-3.0″ of lift.
You’ll not believe the ride quality difference between long arms and short arms, and these packages also include an upgraded crossmember for offroad drivers who find themselves belly-up on rocks. A perfect upgrade for these kits is to add on a beefy upgraded anti-sway bar (available below) to allow more precise cornering as well as a quicker response to your steering input through the steering wheel.
Clayton Off Road’s package deal lift kits are specifically designed to offer the best all around performance. This kit is put together using only the highest quality parts, and vigorously tested to meet our stringent requirements. Because this is a package deal lift kit, you know that everything is going to properly work together, to give you the best performance possible. Making bulletproof arms is our name to fame and we back that with our lifetime warranty. But that’s only one step of the equation. When this package deal was put together we had one main goal in mind. We wanted to build the strongest, most reliable long arm kit on the market. Price is important, but quality has to be a priority. Ease of installation is also very important, but strength and reliability has to be above the rest. If you save a few hundred dollars, and it falls apart in 6 months, that’s not saving money. If you can install it for less or faster, but it fails or leave you stranded in the woods, that’s not saving time or money either. These are all items we thought about when designing, installing and testing our lift kits. Our obsession to details, is what brings you the best riding, strongest most reliable lift kits on the market, period.
