    Army What can I do to raise hieght of my Cherokee

    Hello, I have a 2001 Jeep Cherokee (xj I believe) and I'd like to put tires on it to raise the height and I don't want to do anything with the suspension. I have the stock tires, with the 15" rim, could I use a larger tires (like a 16" rim) off of a different jeep and still clear. And in case I decide to go with a suspension upgrade what would be a good brand I size to go with? I really don't want to go away from the original height but it looks ridiculous where its at. Could I get some pointers please?

    Well, you might be able to run some 31" tires without a lift. (and you can run a pretty big tire on 15" wheels, no need to go to 16" unless you want to/get a good deal on a set)

    But remember, for every inch of tire size you go up, the Jeep is only going up 1/2"

    If you ant to run a 33" tire, you'll need to do some lift, or a lift and cutting/trimming.

    As far as lifts go, there are a lot of them to choose from. Mine is 'mostly' RE (Rubicon Express) I have RE leaves and coils, with Iron Rock long arms.

    It's pretty easy to lift an XJ 2", by using a 'Budget Boost', basically spacers up front for the coils, and either blocks, or an AAL in back. (AAL is an Add A Leaf)

    A budget boost will let you run 31's or 32's with little to no rubbing.
