building a Grand Cherokee... Questions... HELP!

Ok so as it sits i have a 1993 grand cherokee with the quadra-trac system...




So far i have a 3.5" procomp lift consisting of longer arms, coils. and shocks all the way around. It fits 31x10.5 procomp m/t's nicely!

What i am wanting to do is go to 33x12.5's. I have a set of 2'' coil spacers i havent used yet. I think thatll do as far as clearance?

Next i NEED to weld up the ass end! Is this a bad idea seeing as i drive it on the street.(remember its fulltime awd. It does still have low range of course)

With that being said i also am curious what you JEEP guys do for sliders on the unibodies like mine?



Thanks for your help in advance.... I have the space to do this project and the tools, but i just am lacking the knowledge!

With those 2inch spacers you may clear 33s but may need a SYE for the rear shaft. Ifs it a dana 35 don't weld that shit they don't even last with 31s and open. A good set of rock sliders are a great investment. I have JCR offroad slider on my xj and they taken some good hits and also stiffened up the body abit.

Steering is needing some support... Today i noticed it starting to weaken. Beat her hard today she was great! I now need new tires... My 31's are far 2 small.(got stuck in some ruts in the trap!) Lookin to cram some 33's goin for 2'' spacers and disconnecting sway bars. Still sortin out sliders.
