how low can it go?

I'm throwing around the idea of lowering my Cherokee. Making it into a more of a FSJ rat. I was just wondering if I used the stock front axle how low could realistically get it?

My boss is into traditional hot rods. He told me I could very easily make a drop axle. But just thinking out my options.

Well ... my Lowrider Cherokee is LOW, but it uses a 78 Z28 front subframe and rear axle. The rear axle is spring under and blocked about 3" or more. Rear frame has been boxed and sectioned.

See my signature link for pics.

BTW, there was a lowered 4x4 Cherokee in CA a while back. I would guess you could drop stock by 3-4" maybe. Depends how close the axle gets to the oil pan.

That does sit low. I like the stance of that.
