I'm confused.

What's the spectrum of this forum?

Is it XJ tech from stock to as far as anyone has taken it?

Should we be expecting mixed questions about 2" BB lifts, and 4-linked coiled rears with entirely rebuilt "frames"?

I'm not sure why the forum was just divided this way (perhaps something to do with the latest Jeepspeed trend), but I don't think it'll really help things at all. Especially with the vast amount of XJ information already in both the 'hardcore' and 'newbie' forums.

Not trying to be an ass, just wondering.

stock XJ stuff can go in the non-hardcore jeep stuff. think of this as the hardcore XJ section.

I think it's going to end up as "hardcore" as the users allow it to be. If the users respond to the "how much lift to fit 30's" questions, then this will end up like NAXJA's little sister. If the users can remember that this is an "Extreme rockcrawling" board and weed out the trivial BS, I think it will be valuable.

I agree. As I think the saying goes, "Build it and they will come". Well it's up to us to build it however we want. I think it's worth a try. If it fails to work out, then we will have what we had before.

I dont think the XJ forum is really needed.

Forum for the Wagons.
I don't think you just get the XJs, you get the rest of the wagons, too.

Most importantly, that means Liberties.

As a ZJ guy I fawkin hate it when people call them all "Cherokees" as if the two are anything alike. I didn't see anything wrong with the way the forums were set up before.

Some of you guys would bitch about finding a 10lb sack of hundred dollar bills

Instead of trying to figure out how this forum is going to go wrong, why can't we just let it be used and sort itself out. The mods haven't set any "no flaming", or "keep it hardcore" rules. Right now it appears to be a Generalized Cherokee, yes grands included forum.

BINGO !!

it's up to you guys with wagons to make this forum as cool as you want it. I have seen some pretty nice junk around so I am sure the die hards will lead the way and make this forum cool.

I think its cool. Instead of wading through heaps of YJ, TJ, etc. tech, I can go right to the Jeeps that matter. By the way, how much lift to fit 3o" tyres?

You can fit 30's without a lift, but you'll have to remove the fender flares and trim the dog shit out of it.........and you'll have to do something about the steering angles because the tires will give you some lift.

Maybe I'll just buy a YJ so I know what room to be in.
