    Yes it is a used vehicle but I had limited funding and the price was right! The engine is in great condition! and the transmission is superb! The vehicle also has brand new coils and shocks! I might take your advice though and drop it back down! I have all the parts for the front end and I have started work on it already thank you guys for the advice very helpful!

Check and see if your drive line is in a bind /it does change way it aligns/and with the swaying he probably didn't beef up the suspension/ lower it or beef the suspension.

Hub assembly. most lifted vehicles get bigger and wider tires on different rims that move the back spacing which places more stress on the hubs. i had this on my grand cheroke with a 3" lift and aftermarket rims with 31x12.50 15 tires on it. also watch the bushings in the lift kit itself, mine was a skyjacker kit with upper and lower control arms and all the poly bushings wore severely! you may need to keep an eye on your bushings as well.

How do i put my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee in 4 wheel drive?


open glove box (2014 is a new car)
extract operators guide,
read that.
or drive back to where you bought it and ask them for instructions.
using 4wd can be good bad, you must learn how to use it.
for sure.

do not use locked mode, on pavement.
if AWD that runs full time (options)
if car is part time 4wd do not drive on pavement unless ice is on top.
part time is for dirt or ice, never dry pavement.ever.

Will 235/75/r15 tires look ok with a 2 or 3 inch lift?


Were you not planning on increasing the tire size after lifting it? They may look a little small with a 3" lift, its a personal preference. If it was me, I would probably go to a larger tire like 285/75R15 or even 305/75R15. Also remember if you put a bigger tire on this thing the speedometer will be off. It will say your going 55 but you may be going 60. Also bigger tires will change the overall gear ratio. It will increase gas mileage but lower the torque to the wheels.

Feels like it will roll over in turns


they do feel top heavy and if you have a lifted one it gets even worse it will take a while to get used to it. you can check to make sure the sway bar bushings are not worn out as this will make it worse.
