had to get a daily driver

hey everybody. well the cherokee is going underconstruction for most of the summer. waiting to finish building the 44 front, still need to regear the 8.8 rear. rock crawler 3 link, and sold the 35s off of it, so start funding for 36-38s. im going to need a full time job this summer to fund all this, and ill still need something to drive every day. picked this up a couple weeks ago. was build just down the road. it was pretty much just a show jeep. has about 10k on it since it was finished. garage kept. in the 4 years he had it it hadn't been rained on once.

some quick specs are in sig. could use 38s..but drives great, some dont like the chrome..but you know what..this isn't a "chrome wont get ya home" type deal. and im pretty sure if i ever did want to wheel it, i wouldn't have too many worries

Nice! But I find it hard to believe that you won't at least be tempted to take it off road. I would wheel the snot out of it.
