1996 Jeep Cherokee XJ

Here is what happens when you have the same vehicle to long.

Year 2000
Clean 1996 Jeep Cherokee
6" Skyjacker Rock Ready System
Cut Down High Pinion Dana 44 Front Axle
EMS Offroad TJ Bracket Kit
Cut Down and Shaved D60 Rear Axle 35 Spline
ARBs 5.13
4340 Axle shafts
At this point we built my friend in Colorado a very nice simple Jeep that should be trouble free for many years

Year 2004
XJ rear ended by a police officer in the snow. Jeep is totaled. I horse trade a bunch of parts and labor in order to buy the jeep off my friend.
We Drive out to Colorado to pick it up and drop off his new YJ that we just built for him.
While we were out there we swap the rear out for a diffrent one, since we are also installing the 60 from the rear of XJ into his YJ.

How can we make this work a little better? We take the fenders off the front and install my 39.5 Swampers onto the XJ.
