You also don't need keys to start a vehicle but they sure are helpful, and save lots of time. Lol!!!

Any auto parts store has a repair manual for your 84-2001 xj, also you may find one on the web for a great deal.

Re: OME Install

I too just ordered my OME lift and am waiting for delivery. I have never installed a lift on an IFS vehicle, but have done many wranglers, cherokees, etc.

I have done a fair bit of research and everything looks to be pretty simple. There are several write-ups on how to install lifts on this boards as well as the other WK boards.

The back is easy. Shouldn't take too long but I have read that many had issue with the rear trackbar clearance. I plan on just unbolting it and then realigning it with a ratchet strap. Simple.

The front has a few stubborn bolts depending on age and how rusty your undercarriage is. Just use some PB blaster a couple days leading up to the install to help. A strut compressor is a must to disassemble the struts.

Good luck with your install. Post some pictures when you get done!

You won't need the strut compressor if your doing the lift using a car lift right?

I got a set of OME shocks and stabilizer on my Cherokee, no complaints yet.

You will when you break down the stock struts and springs and rebuild the assembly with the OME spring and strut.
