That is a good one.

Mine really isnt a mod at all, but its one of my favorite after market products I have purchased for my XJ. Its gotta be my Catch-All floormats. I tend to get my floormats very messy, and these make lift soooooo much easier. Sure they are expensive, but I love them. Plus they look very nice.

It just seemed that they were all for the wrangler and not that many for cherokee. I just wanted a conglomerate of cherokee mods so users could sort through them easier.

I'm lazy!

I plan on doing this, when I get everything else on my jeep finished up first....mostly because of all those cicadas flying around lastyear, those gigantic bugs took out some of those little plastic bars in my grill.

I like My DIY bored out throttle body the most out of all the cheap mods I've done. It has made the largest improvement it performance so far.

I had a custom "exhaust delete" a while back (ripped it off on a rock), but that wasn't a very good "mod." I'd have to say taking off the flares with my stock rims and 30s, makes it look like the tires are wider.
