BDS xj long arm kit on an mj?


Recommended Posts

Hello to all I am new here but not new to jeeps.I have a 91 2 door xj in addition to my new to me 91 short wheelbase short bed 4x4 mj.Anyway this truck is dead stock right now.So I am looking into some lifts.I really like bds long arm kits,but they only make the one I want for xj's.So my question is has anyone here used the xj kit on their mj?I have spoken with their tech guys at length they say it "should" work with minor trimming on the belly pan.

 

This is going to be a bit of a frankenlift What they suggested is to use the arms and track bar from their 6.5 kit with 4.5 springs and Acos (I want them to fine tune the front)but I have a wagoner d44 front with a tnt truss with the raised lca mounts they were not sure if it would work.Any thoughts or suggestions?This is an all around build snow mud rocks, trails, road time,I'm going 35 to 37 tires no bigger d44 is built with jna k kit and rcv axles with hysteer.

 

Again this is my first mj anything that might work better?Shocks will be determind by final lift height tires ect. sorry about the long winded post.Thanks!

Sounds be a direct bolt in. Everything is the same from the doors forward other than the cab frame itself (roof and sides of cab course). The suspension and everything under the front end its the same.

 

I'm not 100% sure on skid plates...But I'm sure they're the same too from the cab forward.

 

Essentially everything from the xj should fit an mj in terms of front suspension.

A commonly held misconception but this is not entirely true. The suspension is the same but the front unibody subframe is different between and MJ & XJ. Most XJ kits of this type can be modified for the MJ as mentioned above. The same is true of drop-brackets. I only know of one set CAD made specifically for an MJ but they are made by the disreputable RRO.
