Talked with someone at Jeep Thrills about a rubicon kit. Have a couple days to make my decison on the order. But came across a 98 TJ's Rubicon Kit used for sale. From what i read on www.rubiconexpress.com they look to be similiar if not the same kit.. Will the 98 TJ Kit work with my 97 Grand Cherokee??

isnt one a uni body and one a frame..... if it was the same id be amazed but its different is my bet. 2 completely different vehicles. Maybe that kit will bolt into my f250?

I doubt it that one will swap over to the other, you may be able to use the shocks and springs, but i think you might have issues if you are using longer radius arms. Is your TJ a rubicon? (D44)

reason i ask is both suspension kits are coil based. even thou one is unibody one is frame they have pretty much or relatively the same suspension setup.

Im talking about the Rubicon Short Arm Kit for the tj 3.5" AS similar to the 3.5" Rubicon short arm soft ride kit.

The front from a tj, has a frame, is pretty much interchangeable with the older smaller cherokees, unibodied. The rears are of course different. I don't know about the grand cherokees.

I'm pretty sure it won't work on your f250, but I have one here that I could check on for you.
