    New Jeep

    Well got the new jeep all lifted with a 2" lift on it and a full round of Rancho RS5000 shocks and a new stabilizer shock. Also replaced several bushings with the newer poly style. She sure looks much better now.. Now I just have to wait for the tax return to get the tires. The settlement cash left over payed for the jeep and all the much needed lift parts and suspension stuff. After all is said and done I will have around 3200 spent total and fully operational. Over all will gain around 3.5" of added clearance.

    Once I get the new tires I'll post a picture just cause I am pretty darn happy with the outcome so far.

    Next this summer will be a new Track bar, tire rod ends, and ball joints and a few other tweaks.

    The RS 5000 are those the same as mine with the adjustable Gas shock,There's a kit you can get for those for about $100 bucks and adjust them from inside the Jeep...Cool,Glad you is happy,I love the Gas adjustable shocks,but I was to tight and not to lazy that I have to get on my a$$ to adjust them,from very soft...Like Craig's Deal,to really stiff like say...Mine.hehehehehehe If there not the adjustable ones then there a 3 out of 1-5,which is where you run them most of the time any how,You can bust one of those puppy's in 1/2 and they'll give you a new one.

    Sounds like you have a real hunting rig in progress ;D One of those racks that fit into the receiver hitch to put that old bloody deer on might be pretty handy too

    Re: New Jeep

    Kele nah those are the RS9000 shocks and they cost way to much for me. Those are for some serious off roading and not anything I will be doing.

    ELIP no it's a Cherokee..I'd have loved to get CJ or a Wrangler but having kids I wasn't to confy with them riding in it with a soft top and what not in car seats. I decided to get something a tad more family friendly and cheaper...A CJ or Wrangler in the condition the cherokee is in would have cost $5000 or more. So I went the cheaper route and more family friendly..

    Dennis I plan on it for sure. Harbor Freight sells em with a 500 lb limit for around $50 out the door. So that's gonna happen before deer season hits.

    I still have a few more things I wanna do to get it in better shape but for now it's looking good and rides pretty solid. New tires and a front end alignment and she'll be golden. She runs pretty smooth after the tune up and a new thermostat. Will definitely make a good hunting rig. No more relying on other folks to haul my butt around, now I can haul them around some..

    After the lift I had to relocate the tail pipe a tad since the longer shackles sorta got in the way.. On the front coils I replaced the factory coil spring isolator as well to help stabilize things and it along with a 1/2" block welded to the axle gave me a tough more clearance the 30" tires will look mighty sharp.

    Anyways once I get the basics done I'll post some pics and probably post more as the changes progress..Plan on having it painted later this year. Next year I am going to put a crate motor in so she'll be good for 200k+...

    Re: New Jeep

    I don't get my Butt on the ground and use them that much any how,and your right,they where the 9000's
    I almost always have them on 3,thats what the ones you have are set at.,I'll put them on 5 to get a good firm push down in the Mud & snow,or 1 if your going over some rough terrain with a lot of undulations,like rocks,logs,people,what ever when you need them to give more. Those ones you have are fine and will last for ever and are second to none,I've had mine 6 years with out a problem,if you ever tare a boot replace it,and like I said they are both life time warranty.So we need pic's...Here's my beast.74,000 original mil. Original warren winch,snow plow bumper.I just need to get it out of Ca. so I can get a way from all the smog crap,though it's classified as a Federal Vehicle so that helps with less smog parts,Like it has Headers,NO smog pump and open intake with Flo-Master Mufflers and 2&1/2 inch pipes all the way down from the headers only a PVC valve,but 8 Miles to the gal,ain't much fun,I need to get a 2 barrel Carburetor,The High performance
    360 motor will still run fine,just better millage.

    Re: New Jeep

    Thats a good price on those racks. I speak from experience about those racks. I had a new 82 Ford Bronco(that I just sold two weeks ago) with the lariat interior package. My first deer hunt was a total disaster to the interior. The blood stains were still in the carpet 26 years later. Kinda stunk that first hot summer too.
