Author Eric Zappe has spent most of his life in the West, growing up in Utah and Nevada. As a child, he found himself doing everything from wrenching on his BMX bike to building homemade go-carts with his friends. Now, his passion for creation and adventure has translated into producing the High-Performance Jeep Cherokee XJ Builder's Guide.
The XJ is a very capable machine with two available four-wheel-drive systems, solid axles front and rear, and a torquey 4.0-liter straight-six. This guide gives you information on installing just about anything available for your '84-'01 Jeep XJ. The guide covers suspension, axles, transfer cases, skidplates, differentials, wheels, tires, and even has a section showing some well-built XJs running the famous Rubicon Trail.
If you plan on building an XJ, this is the book you need to have in your back pocket. It is available now through CarTech books.
