  • 3" aal

    i am a new jeeper and i was thinking of going with a 3" aal and spacers in the front. what do you guys think? is there anything else i would need besides the leaves and spacers?

    3" Add a leaf etc

    New shocks are going to be in order right off the bat. What is it you are trying to get out of your JEEP? If it is look you want and a bit bigger tire check out a smaller lift with less complications. 4wd Hardware makes a 1 3/4 " lift. A good place to start if you are on a budget (only $189.99) and you should be able to get away with your shocks you have now. Alignment problems arrise after 2" or so on the Cherokees. Good luck.

      i want the look, but i also want it to perform, so i was lookin at either the rough country or the rusty's 3" lift kits

        if you go for the performance and that what you should do then the look just kinda falls in place. Haven't heard awhole lot of good things about rusty's stuff. A lot of complaints on customer service shipping timeframes and quality of work. He says he will give 100% customer satisfaction but I know guys that order stuff from him and it takes for ever or replacing something that went bad takes twice as long. I myself am going to stay away from rustys stuff. I have a rusty's air tub and it's simply built and it's built fine, but thats not a suspention part and with the complaints I've seen I don't want to mess with something like that.

        and for a rough country I haven't heard too much stuff about there stuff.

          i'm on a Rustysoffroad 3" & .75"spacers w/ aal haven't had any problems yet install wasn't bad, had some driveline vibes 1" t-case drop kit aslo from Rusty fixder all up, lift included some fair hydro shocks for the price you can't beat it.
          No I didn't get any trackback relocation bracket thingys, but @ 3.75" the front is only off 1/8" (not noticeable)
          & the ride is Fine & I do Drive er daily, 150 miles + each trip to work & home 1/2 of Each month 4 days a wk. Interstate & highway @ 75+mph
          (my co-worker & I swap weeks driving)

          the only thing I might do different might do a 1.75" spacer & extended bump stops & instead of the AALs maybe a new set of leaves w/ blocks to acheive about 4" in rear instead of the AAL cause they squeeeeakkk when your toolin round @ low speeds over bumps, check out the post I put on 's XJ board about the "alternative to AAL" & click on the link to the site w/ the Dakota leaf setup.
