Re: Looking at 2006 cherokees

I had the exhaust manifold issue, and the doors creaking. The lights on my A/C have also gone out. Apparently that's common. Doesn't really bother me, but it's something to check.

Re: HELP PLEASE!!! RC 2" lift

Great price! I'm in Chicago, and I just got mine back. It was $400 with an alignment, and that was the cheapest I found out of 5 places.

Re: 255/65/17 - Request for pics & question about rubbing

I have 255/75/17 with no rubbing at all on road. If I hit a pothole, the tire does hit inside, but other than that it's cool.

Thanks guys! I agree. It came on the Jeep, and I thought it might be a pain to remove. After looking, it seems relatively easy. I think I'll go ahead and take it off this weekend. :)

Re: JK Tires/Rims on 06 WK
