Any jeep cherokee owners out here?

Was just curious to see what you have done to improve the aerodynamics considering the XJ is as aerodynamic as a house.

XJs have more hope than TJs :P

Raccoonjoe has a 92 XJ 4.0, but haven't seen him around here for a while. Might want to PM him and see if he has any updates

About all you could probably do would be to lower it...fashion a chin spoiler that possibly covered the front tires a bit also...maybe AirTabs...some kind of aero grill block...and smooth out the underside a bit.

yea its like a rectangle with a smaller rectange on top... not much aero you can do besides whats already been mentioned...id say lowering and belly pan would be the best bet.

Thanks guys, the rear spoiler seems to help. I am trying to find a GMC jimmy air dam to add on the front.

I've got a Cherokee. It's currently out of order, but it's what I was driving when I registered here.

There's really not a whole lot I could come up with when I had it running. Good luck though.
