Be careful with grill blocking. Cherokee's run VERY hot normally. Less cooling is NOT a good thing.

There is a few ways you can start to improve both off road performance AND aerodynamics :-) Skid Plates

Yeah love skid plates anyway the Front skid plate would start up an underpan belly quite nicely with some added bonuses. Its metal good protection of your belts and namely the alternator which is prone to failure from water and mudd entering it directly. The skid plate stops the majority of this (have not killed an alt since installing it went through 4 of them prior to that. :-)

this will give you a good start on cleaning up the aerodynamics of the underpan. I know thats where I am going to start once I get my baby going again (damned things running like crap. We think its the fuel pump (it does have nearly half a million miles on it and sat for the last 5+ years :-)
