Jeep Cherokee XJ Crawl Series Long Arm Upgrade Kit 


*cutting and drilling required*

The Core 4×4 Crawl Series Long Arm Upgrade Kit for the Jeep Cherokee XJ is the next big upgrade after lifting your jeep. When we set out to make this kit we wanted to get away from the radius style long arms that have flooded the market. Not only are they a bit of an eye sore, but having single points of failure holding your axle forward, just never sat well with us. So we decided to make a kit with true long lower AND upper control arms. This is what really sets this kit apart. With the true long arm design you gain strength, stability, and higher ground clearance. The upper control arms tuck nicely inside the frame rail allowing more room for up travel at lower lift ranges, increased range of motion for your suspension travel, and peace of mind when you are out on the trails!

Why do our Long Arm Kit?

First and foremost: Performance and ride quality. Longer arms means your suspension cycles on a longer arch giving your axle a smoother more consistent range of motion. Proper suspension cycling is what gives the best ride quality on and off the road, as well as flexibility when and where you need it. When you lift your jeep on ‘short’ arms the increased angle that they ride at can bind and limit your suspension cycle. A true long arm kit relocates your control arm mounts away from your axle, allowing for longer arms and proper suspension travel.

Next: Stability. Whether your jeep is a daily driver, a rock crawling weekend warrior or a little of both, long arm kits correct suspension geometry and help keep your wheels on the ground. A long arm kit is one of the best upgrades you can do when you lift your jeep to give you on and off road stability.

Last of all: Core 4×4’s quality can’t be beat.  We are very careful to only select the highest grade bushings, steel, and components in our products because we know that quality is important when you rely on our parts for your ride. Our XJ Long Arm Kit is no different. Whether it’s for daily driving use, more aggressive off roading, heavy towing, or even desert racing this kit will stand up to the test and give you the ride quality and performance that our customers have come to expect from our products!

Optional Upgrade for axle side upper bushings

Now, the factory bushings will not limit your flexibility much with this kit, but they can fail prematurely by twisting up and on a regular basis. We offer a polyurethane replacement as an option, or select the Rock Jock Axle Side Johnny Joint Upgrade Kit to replace your factory rubber with Johnny Joints! This upgrade gives you the absolute best flexibility and durability from your axle side upper control arm mount *cutting and welding are required for this option*
