    so I haven't posted anything on this for a min here is what I found.

    Thanks for the NAXJ.org site that had a lot of info. I decided I am going to build a Jeepspeed race jeep since the front suspension will have to be done and I want to get into desert racing thinking the Rubicon Express long arm kit for suspension. With a lot of "frame" bracing and roll cage fabed up by run a dana 44 rear axle from a XJ if I can find one truss the front. will thats the plan anyways see how it pans out.

    that's why its in quotations

    they do have frame rails in a way or more material in the place of frame rails a lot of people add plate steel to these areas and the suspension attach points to strengthen it.

    Cherokee's are sweet, you should long arm it and cut the doors off.
