Hey I was just wondering what a good lift for a 2000 Jeep Cherokee Sport would be for not to much money?

How much lift? 2",3",4",4.5" or 6"? There are alot of lifts out there!! What do you want to do in your XJ? What size tires are you thinking of running? Give a little more info as lift kit prices vary greatly from a budget kit for around $600 (2" of lift) up to a 6" long arm kit for around $1700 also remember unless you can fit it yourself then you will also have to pay someone who knows what they are doing to fit it for you, this could cost you up to $500 depending on how much work is involved also don't forget the taxes.I have a 98 Cherokee with 5.5" of lift and 31" BFG Muds this combination works good for me as I mainly run trails. Hope this helps best of luck with it.

start with 2" spacers and 31's...see how you like it and its farely cheap...then if you want to go bigger you can just use the spacers and put them on with a new lift, just my .02
good luck

2" is not enough for 31s

Not too much money is relative.

91 has larger fender openings, and he either has either limited his up travel or he does not wheel it in high-flex situations. My 91 on 30s was rubbing enough to trash the fender liners and cut the tires on the metal underneath.
31s on a 2000 with only a 2" lift will punch out the fender liners and possibly tear off the flares first time it is fully flexed with the tires turned.

ya he took the front sway bar out and it would rub alot when flexing...it wasnt to bad for normal driving conditions...but if your going to wheel (like you should) i would go higher....rubicon express 5.5" lift would be sweet, good flex and not to bad a price. then you could fit 33"s
