Ground Clearance
« Reply #-1 on: December 27, 2017, 07:44:50 PM »

I am planning to purchase a Suspension Lift Kit on my 2001 Jeep Cherokee Sport. What brand can you recommend? I would like to add at least 4-inches of ground clearance on my Jeep.

There are many good lift kits out there. Get on a Cherokee forum and see what there using. I  have a BDS  lift kit with the fox shocks upgrade and it's been good for a few years now

Like Mike said, research research research!  Tire size is going to give you the ground clearance.  If you have 225 or 235x75x15's you're looking just over 28" diameter.  If you go with 33" tires it's not giving you 5" additional clearance at the diff's but you're getting close.  Now before you buy a lift you have to decide whether you are willing to trim/cut into the fenders.  Once you figure that out now how much do you want to spend on a minimum of a 4 1/2" lift kit, inexpensive route Rough Country to more expensive BDS and Clayton and so on.  This is a quick Readers Digest version answer.   I can go into excruciating detail if you want to PM me.
