RE: 2002 Grand Cherokee 4.7HO build
Did a couple of things to it over the past few weeks.
First did a 2.5" Budget boost, knew I was going to be a running 255/75r17s (32s) and would need at least a little lift to get me by and knock off the soccer mom look. Install was really easy, needed a coil spring compressor for only the pass. front side, everywhere else dropped far enough to just swap in the spacer.

Then I tried running the Rubi rims on the bald BFG Mts, looked cool but the vibrations and ride was terrible...

So I ordered a set of Nitto Trail grappler M/Ts, lots of good reviews on these from other Jeepers, I was looking for something relatively quiet but still with an aggressive tread pattern and these fit the bill. 255/75r17, measure just over 32" and surprisingly don't rub with the little trimming I did. Also installed some rock lights that I had laying around. Took a few days on them to route everything cleanly underneath and wired it to the factory fog light switch since those will be out of there when I get a new bumper.

Anyways that's where it stands now, starting a new job in New York City in early August, so I won't be in the Syracuse area but will still be making trips up there for events and such. Hope to be up for Jeeps at the beach in august.

Finally got the chance to do some stuff to the WJ. Overall really liking this setup so far compared to my XJ. It's a lot more mild but the ride is good, plenty of power and the inside is comfy and quiet.

4" Zone lift with extended length rear LCAs from Iron Rock Offroad. 255/75r17 (~33s) on JK Rubi rims and 1.5" IRO spacers. Also built some color matched projector headlights and color matched tail lights. Cleans it up a bit and work a lot better than the stock stuff.

RE: 2002 Grand Cherokee 4.7HO build
Looks correct, good job.

Seems like I see people getting really out of hand with the little mods... tires sticking way out, oversized lifts, and all for a vehicle that rarely gets off road. This looks trail aggressive but flows well with the original vehicle and definitely looks mostly practical! You wouldn't have any problems getting thru 99% of trails.

Plus your vehicle is going to hold much more value this way.

I dont know much about the 4.7l, I was always about the 4.0l due to durability.

RE: 2002 Grand Cherokee 4.7HO build
Thanks! Yea that was exactly what I was going for. Something that rides well on the street where it'll spend 95% of its time, but also capable if I want to take it on some trails or camping. Definitely should hold its value better than the XJ too.

RE: 2002 Grand Cherokee 4.7HO build
Looks great man. Like David said, Looks sharp but also very capable on the trail. Win win! Only us dummies like throwing all this money around and working after our day jobs to build shit that no longer perform well on the road lol.
