I have a cherokee with a 2.5l 5spd . My friend has a chevy silverado 2500 with a 350 auto. Both are 2wd. Which would be better offroad. I know neither are as good as a 4wd but i just wonder if mine would be better despite the small engine.

Disconnect your front swaybar and I'm sure you'll be better off. It's even more important to keep both rear tires on the ground if you only have 2wd. Articulation would be important.

Your swaybar...or I should say antiswaybar...keep the axles parallel with the frame. Disconnect the front on an XJ so you can utilize all the articulation built into the suspension.

Well, i feel a little stupid, but what is articulation? Also how hard would it be to diconnect the sway bar? Can i put it back on if i want? Will it drive different on road? And how would it help the back if the front sway bar comes off?

This is for a YJ...but same principles pretty much apply.

So since most of my driving is on the road this probably wouldnt be the best thing to do? If i do decide to do it, would i need to get a lift kit to keep the tires off the fenders? I only have a few inches of room between the fenders and tires.

Back up a sec...learn to wheel your stock rig before you start adding height. You'll have plenty of room for wheel travel with stock tires. Now that you learned about disconnecting do some research how to set it up and see how it feels and only disconnect when you are offroad. There are a few websites that show you how to set up your sway bar for quick disconnect for only a few dollars.

Here's the first one that came up:
