Default xj cherokee 4 link rear and 4.7l stroker info please

hey guys first time to post on this forum. first time for any forum actually lol i have a 98 xj cherokee its my baby lol has a 6.5inch iron rock offroad long arm lift kit, ford8.8 diff swap in rear, front and rear airlockers, 4.88 diff ratio, hack and tap, bushwackers, custom over nuckle steering, jks disconnects double sheer track bar, 35 inch jungle treckers on 15 inch beadlocks 2 inch wheel spacing all around with massive offset rims and lots of other goodies on it any way it drives beautifully better than standard i reckon but im not happy with the rear end flex being leaf sprung. i no that if you set up leafs right they can work quiet well as i have mates with very capable hiluxs but im after something different i have seen a few pictures from the states were they are running a triangulated 4 link rear. i was wondering has anyone on theses forums done this in aus as i would like some info on what direction they took and what the car was like after it has been done. i would like to run coilovers in the rear as some of the kits in america running tj coils requires huge mods to the unibody which is something id like to stay clear from. im also open to ideas on how to set these leafs up correctly i no u can pull leafs out and so on but then u end up with springs that sag in 6 months and u run risk of wrapping them unless running ladder bar been there done that with my last sierra

problem 2...on my last trip to the springs 4x4 park i was running up the gap. its a mountain range outside of warrick for people that dont no the area and it was running llike a dream and then it suddenly spiked in temp to over 125 and bye bye engine lol obviously a cooling problem poked its head up and the head gasket didnt agree so on the tow truck it went now i am after a stroker engine after doing some research on them i have tried searching this forum for people that have done this but i cant seem to find anything i would like to no were to buy these from besides jeep engines australia. not that theres a prob with them just trying to compare prices and would like to no what upgrades to cooling system can be done to keep these girls cool i have got vents in bonnet and am thinking of hooking up little thermos off the vents to help pump out hot air while fourbying. any other ideas would be much apreciated keeping in mind i will be running a stroker engine

more pics available if wanted

"Trucks!" A US show built up a stroker (you can find the videos/writeup through google) and they got some pretty mediocre results. So worth having a look to see what they did wrong I guess...

Have a search in the Jeep section of Pirate4x4 there's plenty of stuff on building a stroker there have a look for posts by a guy called Corey. I currently have the crank required for a stroker build just need to get a block and other bits and pieces and I'll build one up. Bear in mind it will put more of a load on the cooling system so that needs to be 100% or you'll cook another motor

There are a few kits for a 4 link rear like Claytons 4 link setup. Personally I dont think it's worth the hassle and I like the simplicity of the leaf spring rear. Again I have the truss for the rear diff with the mounting points for the upper arms but I wont bother going doing this path and may just mount the truss up to strengthen the rear D44 housing.

Cheers
Steve

cheers for the feedback guys i will have a look thru this brisbane jeep forum. as for the stroker i am looking to buy an exchange engine already done as the research i have done there are a few different combinations that u can do and a few of them get pretty crappy results. i was just wondering if any one knew of any other sites that sell the 4.7l engine besides jeep engines australia. and yer im aware of the cooling system needing to be tip top i am looking around atm for a good radiator upgrade. and i want one of those cowled bonnets
