The Jeep Cherokee XJ is a pioneering SUV that delivers commendable performance and off-road capability. More than 3 million Cherokee XJs were manufactured during its production run. However, when the XJs rolled off the production lines, they were built primarily for the street. As a result, XJs need crucial modifications and high-performance upgrades to make them better for off-road duty. In this updated edition, author and veteran Cherokee expert Eric Zappe guides you through each stage of an XJ build, so you can take the mild-mannered, bone-stock XJ and upgrade it to a capable off-road performer. Zappe delves into suspension bolt-on improvements, including lift kits to increase ground clearance and suspension travel. He also covers high-performance shocks and long-arm suspensions. Wheels and tires are your vital link to the terrain, and he reveals all the important considerations so you select the right combination. XJs need a heavy-duty steering system to negotiate challenging off-road conditions, and Zappe explains several ways to upgrade the steering. Driveline and axle upgrades are an important part of the performance equation, so these performance improvements are covered as well. But he doesn’t stop there; he also explores engine performance improvements for the 2.5-, 2.8-, 4.0-liter engines so the Cherokee has more power for off-road performance. In addition, he covers some basic tips for body strengthening and adding skid plates. If you’re ready to go off road with your Cherokee but you’re not planning to build a top-dollar off-road machine, this is the book for you. With the techniques and latest products described in this book, you will be able to upgrade your XJ to much higher level of performance and your XJ will be at home off and on road.

The venerable Jeep 4.0-liter inline-six engine has powered millions of Jeeps, including CJs, YJs, Wranglers, Cherokees, and Wagoneers. The 4.0 delivers adequate horsepower from the factory, but many off-road drivers want more horsepower and torque to conquer challenging terrain, which means these engines are often built and modified. The Jeep 4.0, or 242-ci, is affordable, abundant, exceptionally durable, and many consider it one of the best 4x4 off-road engines. In this Workbench title, veteran author and Chrysler/Jeep engine expert Larry Shepard covers the rebuild of an entire engine in exceptional detail. He also delves into popular high-performance modifications and build-ups. Step-by-step photos and captions cover each crucial step of the engine disassembly. He shows the inspection of all critical parts, including block, heads, rotating assembly, intake, and exhaust. Critical machining processes are covered, such as decking the block, line boring, and overboring the block. The book provides exceptional detail during the step-by-step assembly so your engine is strong and reliable. Installing a larger-displacement rotating assembly or stroker package is one of the most cost-effective ways to increase performance, and the author covers a stroker package installation in detail. With millions of Jeep 4.0 engines in the marketplace (which are subjected to extreme use), many of these engines require a rebuild. In addition, many owners want to extract more torque and horsepower from their 4.0 engines so these engine are also modified. Until now, there has not been a complete and authoritative guide that covers the engine rebuild and build-up process from beginning to end. Jeep 4.0 Engines is the essential guide for an at-home mechanic to perform a professional-caliber rebuild or a high-performance build-up.
The Jeep Cherokee is one of the most prolific and rugged sport utility vehicles in history. Throngs of off-roading enthusiasts have chosen the Cherokee for navigating over the toughest terrain, climbing rocks, and trail driving, but these unibody 1984-2001 models have much room for improvement to become the best off-road vehicles. In Jeep Cherokee XJ Advanced Performance Modifications: 1984–2001, author Eric Zappe explains how to transform a stock Cherokee into the toughest and most capable off-road 4x4 SUV. The author details the buildup, right combination of parts and products, and modifications necessary to build an aggressive off-road rig. He also shows how to weld and gusset the frame in critical areas. Installing a three- and four-link suspension system is also profiled so the Cherokee delivers greater travel and better off-road handling. Suspension and frame modifications are necessary to run large wheels and tires. And these wheels and tires are essential for traction, performance, and ground clearance in extreme off-road situations. Swapping in Dana 44, Dana 60, and Ford 9-inch axles delivers superior performance and durability, which is covered as well. In addition, how to modify the Jeep inline 6-cylinder engine for increased displacement and performance is revealed. All of the most popular and effective mods, parts, and upgrades for a dedicated off-road Cherokee are covered. If you’ve been looking for the one guide to build the most capable off-road Cherokee, you’ve found it.
