$300 99' cherokee build

ok i just got an awesome deal on a 99' cherokee sport its a 4.0, auto, 4x4, 4door, dana30/chry8.25, 92K on it, black, and no rust. for $300, the only problem is... it was hit both front and rear, didn't even mess with the frame, but the fron header panel is toast. in the rear it was hit on the quarter panel. this is my 3rd cherokee, but the newest. o and its missing the seats and carpet. i plan on building this one RIGHT, for my daily driver and weekend play toy, i mostly wheel in the mud with some trails.

My plans:
1.FIx it,body
seats
Herculine floor and rockers
2. RE 5.5 or 4.5 lift, maybe a long arm system
3.RE hack'n tap/front drivesahft
4.some 33's im thinking bfg mt's
5.armour, recovery gear
6.Jcr stage 3 front bumper, and c-rock rear bumper
and thats where i'll start
ofcourse this may take some time as im a college student and work most the time, and i need to keep my 94' running. i'll be posting pictures of the build on here and updates.
i'll get the first pics up tomorow when i go pick it up.

he said it ran great b4 the accident, but as of now it doesnt have a radiator, or altinator, it looks like he started to part it out but has very few parts missing, the front cross member is mangled but once i get that fixed. i'll get it running. it should be a good winter project

this is the third jeep i've gotten in 3 years, the 94 was my first and is my DD, and i paid $100 the 95 for parts, im hoping i can use the front cross member from the 95 on the new 99 when i get the frame straightend, as for the rear i hope to cut some sheet meal of the 95 also. it should be interesting

definitely a deal, but you will probably need another parts jeep though.
