Update:

ALSO, last nite i did a few things:

1 )trimmed my front bumper end caps.
2) adjusted my belt. i put a it on just a couple weeks ago and it was gettin stretched so i tightened the bad boy up.
3) dropped my tires to 29psi for better tread wear on the street.
4) put on some locking lugs. (i'll bve real pissed when someone just steals my whole jeep. locking mugs and all.) thieves
5) took out my spare tire in the back to make more room for my one tow strap.

speaking of tires, im going to be selling them on CL here soon. i will post the link to my CL ad if anyone ends up being interested. it is a set of 5 on the stock jeep rims. all tires 225/75r15. the spare is brand new it looks like. it is a goodyear wrangler radial. the other 4 are wildcats. the rears are a little more worn but hardly noticeable and they all have good tread anyways. ill even throw in the two pieces to mount the spare in the back of your cherokee. and im throwin in the spare cover too. its in good shape as well.

like i said i will post the CL link on here. if you are already interested and dont wanna wait then pm me.

-Sean

Just Some Random Pics From Last Night:

when i first stepped into my garage, i immediatley saw that some modifying had to be done.

then i took a look at my squished muffler and a new shiny spot on my driveshaftm, per one fat log.

closer up on that muffler.

what i did with my front bumper end caps for the time being.

the open space can be seen here. nore more baby tires touching my rig!

o yeah and i popped my hood to tighten my belt. IF ANYBODY HAS EVER TIGHTENED THE BELT ON THEIR CHEROKEE, YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT IT REALLY, REALLY, REALLY IS INCONVENIENT AND IT SUCKS. ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE A FRONT SKID, BECAUSE IT HAS TO BE REMOVED TO GET TO THE LOWER POWER STEERING PUMP MOUNT BOLT. I HATE DOING IT!


LINK TO MY CRAIGSLIST AD FOR THE TIRES (225/75R15; set of 5):
Tires And Wheels

thats all for now.

If you are not replacing your cat yet i advise looking inside it to see if there is any more of the honey cone material left inside. if it looks good still you are in the good if not beat inside it to break up whats left so you can try to remove it. (so you don't ruin a new muffler.)

Not that I advise it but if you know someone to do it mine was so bad that I removed it completely.
