I have plans of running q78's on my 93 2dr XJ, but i'm strapped for cash and saving seems to get harder and harder these days...I was wondering if any of you XJ guys could give me some hints on what would be a cheap yet decent set up for the q78s...i have a 8.25 rear with a 5 speed tranny inline 6 and i'm unsure of what gears i have in it (either way i will upgrade)

If anybody has any hookups please inform me!

thanks alot

The only good way to clear tires on an XJ.
The other way to clear Q`s is to give it 8"s of lift but that would require some big bucks to do correctly.
BTW....Q`s are more expensive than standard 36 TSLs now.

If you want to run anything over 33's for cheap on an xj, you are gonna sacrifice ride.

You need to go long arm to do it right, and that aint cheap.

On a side note you can fit 39's on an mj with 7.5" of lift.

alright heres the deal..i'm new to this from a 'in the seat point of view' but i've done a good deal of research on how things 'work' for what i wanna do...my question was really to gather some 'in the seat feel' on what i should do and what would be the cheapest yet decent way to do it....so far ya'll have told me things i already know..

Cutting fenders=more space for tires

yes long arm is good but i wont NEED THEM i can always upgrade...

The things i know i will need is some sort of sye....a LIFT odviously, and regearing...i can only go to 4.56 with the 8.25 that is correct right???what about drive shaft??

also...i want to upgrade my 27 spline to a 29 spline...has anybody done this before?? how easy is it??who does gearing for a good price??

If anybody has some ideas or imput on a better way to to this let me know..and hookups are always nice, if anybody knows of somebody gettin rid of parts let me know...thanks!!
